So i threw a front driveshaft this weekend and in the process lost the linkage to shift the transfer case. cant really find anywhere to buy a stock replacement, all i can find is the novak complete kit. anybody know anything about this or opinions on what i should do. I never had problems shifting before link the novak one is designed to fix. Just curious on other thoughts
All I see around is rebuild kits. Don't help when your driveshaft smacked the linkage right off.
First things first. Did you verify there is no damage to the t case it's self? Suck to get replacement parts and find out the t case is shot.
Next I am actually waiting for my Novak to come in. Once I get it switched out I'd be happy to sell my old linkage to you cheaply. I am missing the the isolators on the shift cane but I think all of the linkage is fine.
as far as i can tell everything with the transfer case seems to be fine just have to get under it to shift by hand. I would be interested in your linkage and also i would be interested in the novak linkage and how it works for you.
Let me know
I was searching for the transfer case chain that I need to replace on my '93. I typed "np231 j transfer case shifter" in the search bar. Also, maybe check your local bone-yard. A good one near me (central CT) is Chuck and Eddie's in Southington, CT. I've bought a few things from them for mine in the last few months. Good luck!
Hey vmax, I live in Terryville Ct. A buddy was telling me about chuck & eddies the other day. He wasn't sure if they still allowed you to pull stuff from the yard yourself. You got any idea? How they fixed up for yj carcasses over there?
Yeah, Fabrokoner, they let you go in there and take off whatever you want. If you go on a Saturday, be prepared to pay $1 to go out in the yard. Yes, that's One Dollar....kinda weird, I know... Anyway, I've gone a couple times after work, but don't show up at 4:30 and expect to get out there, they are REALLY tight on last call to go in the yard since they close at 5. They have yards in Southington, Hartford, and New Haven, although I've only been to the one in Southington. Check out there website, also. From what I've seen, they have a pretty constant turnover of YJ's. They're telephone customer service is actually VERY good. If you tell them exactly what you're looking for and they have it, they will remove it for you and have it ready for desk front pick up. I plan on making several trips there as soon as the weather gets a little warmer!! Hope this helps and good luck!!!
Geez...I'm from Pa. and I even know about Chuck&Eddies...lol. Actually how I know is they sell used parts on Ebay quite a bit for the Wranglers. I even have them saved as one of my favorite sellers on there.
I have installed the Novak T-case linkage on a customer vehicle, and it works very good and shifts extremely smooth. Great product, but I thought it was a little pricey at $190...But ...the customer is always right...lol.

Around here, they let you pull your own parts, too.
And yeah, they charge you a $1 to enter the yard, as well.
They explain the reason for the fee as such ... A lot of the customers will take a few small items and place them into their pockets, tool boxes, etc. Charging the fee offsets some of the loss that the junkyard incurs because of this.
The junkyard does not keep an inventory of the different types of vehicles on its yard. A lot of the times, you will go to them and not find what you are looking for.
Therefore, I think that this fee is just a scam to collect money from everyone entering the junkyard, whether he/she purchases something or not.
The largest junkyard around here (Pick-A-Part) has a special section of more modern vehicles (fenced off) inside the yard, away from the older vehicles. To enter this "special" area will cost you an additional dollar.

Down here they charge $2.00 admission I imagine that is to cover cost of insurance.
Even tho you sign a waiver they can still be held liable for certain injuries.
The biggest rip off is core charges. Not just on rebuildable stuff but on anything.
They charge core charge on sheet metal ,glass,interior trim,seats you name it.
They collect this hoping you wont return for your money.EXTRA PROFIT
