Transfer case shifter

I believe this is part of the transfer case 4wd shifting linkage?? Is the shaft supposed to be in that bushing? If so how do i get this right?

Yes, that's the t-case linkage, and yes the shaft should be in the bushing.

I think you can take the bushing plate off and realign. I've only dealt with them while yanking the case though.

Crown has a kit to freshen up all the bushing in the linkage if you want to really clean it up (same linkage used on the 249, but the 249 gets no love): https://www.quadratec.com/products/52207_0007.htm

Yes, either the two bolts retaining the bushing assembly to the bushing support may be removed to replace the shaft into the bushing, or the press-fit bullet end of that shaft (the other end) may be pried out of the rubber bushing retaining it to the fore / aft support, so that the linkage may be properly assembled.

thanks guys

is the large "A" plate that holds the bushing plate cleared out behind the bushing plate or does it just have a similar thru hole like the bushing plate? if its just a hole i dont see how i can get the shaft in without taking apart the other side of the linkage.

Yes, the "A" bushing support is wide open behind the bushing surface, but I agree that the bullet end of that linkage shaft will need to be pried out of the hard rubber bushing on the fore / aft support to permit assembly.

is this an indicator that the transfer case has probably been out before?

The transfer case can go in and out w/o this linkage coming out of the bearing or the linkage being disassembled.

The transmission removal and replacement requires removing this linkage, then replacing it properly after installing the transmission.
