Thanks, I think that's what I was thinking too with going forward in 2H..... Is that forward bend about at the body opening, or just a tad above?

I have a thread I posted awhile ago about my TC popping out of 4H, from what it says on Novak's site it should stop that. Has anyone had any experience with this problem and this shifter set up? Looks like its a pain to install but I would rather deal with it then deal with the popping out of 4h and grinding.

I had the same problem fitting mine in.. The shifter on mine is actually backwards from the old style that jerry has.... I forgot to take pics of it.. but if I remember tomorrow I will...

Finally paid off...

When I could actually get mine in 4Lo it would more often than not pop out... I tried adjusting the stock linkage and it didn't help... There are other kits out there that relocate the stock linkage from the body/tub mount to the T-Case itself that some people do have good luck with. After looking at the stock setup I thought the Novak setup looked much more direct and didn't want to have to do the work twice...

Now the Cane Bending stuff is overly painful, but I HOPE that once it's dialed in, I won't have to mess with it till I go to a STaK or Atlas dual stick setup (which is down the road a good ways, years maybe)...

I thought Jerry, and mine are the "newer" style, which retains the stock Front to Back shifting pattern... the "older" units had a reverse shift pattern... I could be wrong, it seems to happen quite often...

From his pic, posted above, he said the most forward position was 2H and back was 4Lo, which is the same setup as mine (and stock)...

Check this out for bend ideas - I didn't cut the shifter down at all and left everything connected as it was shipped...

couldn't it just be bent to mimic the stock shifter style handle? Can you use the stock shifter handle?

Not to jump in, but I did a little poke around and found this step by step install. Not sure if its the old or new style, but worth a look. Heres a link, in case you want to check it out.

Played with this this evening... I'm pretty sure it will get it hot enough to bend...

BUT as I was heating and trying to move a little bit with the pipe over the top, one complete side of my vice LITERALLY snapped off... So I guess I get to buy a new vice now also and try to heat up again tomorrow...
