mbossy123 Finally, SUCCESS!, just before starting to take the flat piece of linkage with the bolt holes out, i found an opening for a 24 inch flat screwdriver (and an angle for some leverage) and hit it with a 3 lb hammer, after a few soft whacks a good solid one did the trick, works smooth as golden now, thanks to all that helped on here, Cheers

mbossy123 WOW! Wingless that's awesome thank you didnt realize you could take that piece in the bottom of the picture off, that looks like a way that could work, thanks again

wingless Picture didn't work...

mbossy123 [IMG]IMG_4955.JPG[/IMG] thinking maybe i have to take the other mounting side off(with the numbers on it)
to get a good shot at it,

wingless Here are some images that might help.

On mine, I swapped all the bushings.

mbossy123 having a hard time getting at it with anything to put some force on it to seat it, need to figure a different way
03-01-2020 01:37 AM
Zilliver You need to apply a good amount of force to pop that pushing back in fully.

Maybe its broken if it does not hold?

mbossy123 thanx, took it out with side lifted, probably only leaked a cup, thanx for the tip, last problem is i somehow had part of the 4x4 shifter linkage pull out of the green bushing sunken in the body of the transfer case, hoping someone can tell me how to get it back in, line it up alright but cant force it in and keeps popping out, cant get it seated, anybody got some good ideas/secrets to accomplish this?

Zilliver Yes, there will be some leak.
02-26-2020 06:25 AM
mbossy123 thanks Zilliver, but it will still leak some out? thnax

Zilliver mbossy123 - yes, lifting the driver side will help to reduce the escaping ATF.

mbossy123 with a new 'deeper' socket, deeper than the first two deep sockets i tried i noticed i couldnt get it on square but it was probably engaged with 4 out of 6 points, pushed hard against it and pulled hard on the spanner and it let go enough, probably only 30 degrees, but that was enough to loosen it by hand the rest of the way when i get new nss, will take a pic or two, interested to know why its so tight, i also lowered the tranny mounting bsar and thus tranny to get more room and a better look, perhaps a bit more clearance, still tough in there for tool room,, also moved propellor shaft, hopefully a pic will tell me why its so tight for the socket, waiting on new nss so a few days away for pic, did lifting the drivers side work in stopping fluid from escaping when its pulled? tia

Paulvon, just noticed yours is a 97, mines a 98 and the nss is way longer than a 97, 3/8 plastic past the tips of the 3 prongs thus id assume the 97s nss is way easier to unscrew and take out, fwiw

paulvon If this is still an issue. Pls take a picture.

mbossy123 thanks guys, but on the 98 the extra plastic on the nss doesnt allow for a deep socket to engage it, back to the drawing board, doh
02-17-2020 10:28 AM
paulvon You need a deep socket.

On mine there was not enough room between the NSS and a lip on the housing. So I got a deep socket and cut part of it away with an angle grinder. Then it was able to fit squarly.
