Transfer case shifter confusion

I changed out the Peugot tranny to an AX15 and installed the Older style Novak transfer case shifter. The shift pattern in the Novak was backwards and I decided to use the old transfer case shifter off the Peugot. Here's the problem. The TC shifter handle leans way left and hits my leg. I called the Jeep dealer and they said the shifter was used from 87' through 95'. Anyone have any experience with this situation. And yes, I looked carefully at how it's mounted and there is no adjustment how it mounts.

Remove. Heat cherry red. Bend. Reinstall.

Opihi,
Is that normal for this swap or is the T-case clocked wrong?

ALL of the YJ drivetrain options had different transfer case shifters, specific to that particular drivetrain's components.

You need a YJ T/C shifter for an AX15 application.

does that mean that the peugot/np231 tx shifter wont fit on an ax15/np231?

I only ask.. because im getting in the same boat...

also... is there any issue with using the old style master cylinder (circa CJ7 (ie, 1987-1989 YJ)) with a new style slave cylinder (circa...post 1996 (the longer one))...

Im having MAJOR pedal play in the clutch before engagement... as in, i had more play before engagement right before prom... less in college, and now none... (that was a joke)...

anyway.. MAJOR play, have bled clutch... repeatedly, but only engages in what feels like the last 10-20%... sorry for the hijack... i should make my own thread....

The hole size on the clutch master cylinder for the 87-89 is different than the 90-95. What you are experiencing is slop in the rod-to pedal area. Look real close at the size hole in your clutch rod and the stud on your pedal.

If I remember correctly on when I did mine, I installed a 95 master cylinder and still used my 88 clutch pedal. The hole was to large for the stud on the pedal thus the slop in the petal

Not sure you got what i was referencing... my jeep is an 89... old style master... the master is original to this jeep (its a replacement, but an OEM replacement)...

but feels like there should be more...

ie, i have both the old style and newer style master... old style WAS installed, and WAS replaced (with an OEM match) with the AX15... but used the new external slave... just has a lot of play before engagement (newer style doesnt fit because my brake booster is in the way)

Ok. I misread your post then. I thought you were using the later model master with the early clutch petal. Carry on

Correct. Not a direct fit.

Can one style be modified to fit another style? Yes, depending on your fabrication skills.

Thanks Opihi and Max. I'll look at the shifter and see about possibly modifying it. In the mean time.... anyone have an NP231 shifter that fits a AX-15 trans. and wants to sell it?
