NP231, which shift fork to buy?!

Hey guys, i need the help of the collective hive JF mind again.

My np231 has been broken for a while, and i cracked it open today to find the shift fork had been totally screwed up and basically eaten half of itself away, along with a saggy chain and busted up oil filter.

So, i'm looking to purchase a new shift fork, and i can't figure out which fork to buy, there are a few options, and none of them seem to fit my TC.

Its a 1993 YJ, with a np231 built in 93

On Quadratec there are two forks, both of which do not include my np231's id number. which is: 52097695

4wd has an Omix-Ada fork for the 231 that doesn't list any specific id's

I'm really confused on which fork to purchase. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Try contacting a shop or seller that deals in transfer cases and repair parts instead of a mud flap and bling retailer like Quadratec.

I ended swapping a NP242 from a 2000 XJ.
So now my YJ has Full Time and Part Time 4WD.

so there are 2 forks for NP231 transfer case...that I learned today.

- one for 2wd and 4wd
- one for high and low gear

The shop I ordered from got the wrong one

FYI: generally change out this fluid more frequently if you are off roading a lot...maybe every 12 months. typically for street driving it should be changed every 3 years.
