T-case linkage falling apart

Morning everyone. My T-case linkage keeps comming off at the point where the lower end of the rod fits into another bracket( in the middle of the system) There is a rubber grommet that the rod presses into. The rubber piece is getting worn out. Has anyone made a better connection point?


Jeep took another piece of my finger today...

I am having the same problem with the grommet on the Adjusting block. I though about welding a stud on there and putting a nylon lock nut on there and keep the grommet as a bearing surface.

Jeep dealership only has one in stock . Seams like a bad design. Easy and cheap but bad . Just one more thing they should had done differently from the drawing board.

X3. I'm wondering if anyone has adapted a cable system instead of the linkage that is used.

At that point where it's too much to list!

A cable system would be complicated because the lever must push as well as pull. If it was done correctly it would be a lot smother I bet. Just more complicated than I wish to fathom. I will be all over one as soon as someone else comes up with a design

A relocation bracket will take care of this problem, it makes the bracket seperate from the body which keeps it from binding causing the linkage to pop out.
A fellow member of my Jeep Club made his own, here's a link: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f46/tc-shifter-bracket-394210/


Good Luck.

That sounds like a challenge!

Was thinking of trying a Morse cable and making the appropriate brackets. WHEN I get the time and if it works, I'll post the steps and final results.

Why mess with cables?

Why not just fab a shifter that connects directly to the linkage like the one I posted a link to above?

That is a good idea, but doing things different is part of the fun!

Maybe I'll do both!

I wish I had just sucked it up and got that novak shifter. I probably will eventually but until money is available I will just keep hacking up my AA bracket until its right.
