Makes sense Blaine but buying the Novak shifter and shipping it here is an expensive excercise in South African currency. The other thing is aside from the knocking I have managed to get the transfer case shifting like butter. No grinding, crunching or binding of any sort ever just a positive feel with a simple slip into the correct spot - I have yet to drive a 4x4 with a manual transfer case shifter that shift as smooth and easy as mine does now.
If this becomes to much of a pain I might end up just buying the Novak shifter. I am going to take the stock shifter linkage apart tonight and see if I can perhaps machine my own from the worn parts.
