Hey Everyone, Was working inside the Jeep today because of weather and I wanted to fix my loose shifter. When I got down to it I noticed the PO did a horrible make shift linkage attachment that was barely holding on. I want to order a new shifter but I am unclear how it's supposed to mount to the tranny. Does anyone of a picture of there shifter install or removal? I love overseas and will have it shipped to me from the states. No room for error and I want to make sure I am ordering the correct parts. Going by diagrams and pictures on 4x4morris.com and 4wd.com it seems as though whatever I order will not work.

This is what mine looks like

To be honest I just assumed it was T-176 lol. For some reason I thought the D300 was always with a T-176. I guess I better crawl under tomorrow and do some cleaning and check the markings.

I guess my question still stands but for a T4.

Thanks

Will tighten it up as good as new.

I've seen those pieces for sale but how do they work with the shifter and how does it all connect to the T4

Rubber isolator in first pic folds in half and goes on that nub coming out of the top of your transmission.

Clip slides over isolater

Shifter slides over and clips onto clip.

Does the sifter have a screw that tightens down? If so how many. The PO welded 2 nuts onto the shifter and used them to tighten but he did a horrible job and it's very loose. But maybe with the 2 items it might stiffen it up

No, that is a common attempt to fix the sloppyness when the original isolator goes. Can you post pics of what he did to your shifter?

I tried doing something similar to "fix" mine and it didn't work. Of course, my "mod" meant I screwed up the square part of the shifter so I had to not only buy a new isolator and clip, but a new stick as well. BUT once I replaced those it shifted as good as new.

I have a B&M aftermarket shifter on mine now, and while it gives slightly shorter throws than the stock shifter, it isn't really much better than a stock shifter with new isolater and clip was.

Put the shifter on.
Drill 1/4" hole through, and secure with bolt and nut.

While LG has a way that will work, and be much more permanent than the isolator and clip, the OEM way will be tighter (IMO).

So is the inside of the shifter still perfectly square or has it been modified? I can't really tell what the prior owner was trying to do with that from the pic.

The inside of the shifter has not been modified and is still square. He basically very poorly welded two nuts across from each other and basically made a clamp. Installed like this the shifter is solid left to right but extremely loose forward and back.

I would get an isolator and clip, and put it on. If you're not happy with it, you could always try what LG suggested. I tried that with my first shifter, was unhappy with it, and ended up buying a new shifter with isolater and clip, and put that on. I ruined my first shifter trying to bolt it on.
