buckshot500 I found another trick to try, if it doesn't want to unlock.

I was trying to get it out of 4WD on Saturday & it wasn't cooperating.

I just backed up a few feet & it pushed back in, easy as pie!

Trick is to make sure the collar isn't binding while moving the cable.

fullyadam Thanks for the reply, I'll just go ahead and plug them all up. Not sure wher you'd find a cable like that, I'm not all too familiar with the system, yet

fullyadam I just bought an 87 YJ and the kid before me put in a posi lok w/out changing out the shift fork. I plan on doing that this weekend but while I am at it I was wondering...

What the hell do I do with all these vacum hoses? They seem to just be hanging there, for the most part, do I need to seal them up or anything, or can I just rip them out and keep them/share them as spare parts?

I was smart enough to make a template of the gasket, before I bolted it all up.
I have a roll of gasket paper, to make a new one if the one that's in there doesn't come off in one piece.

So I'll take a look at the stock fork, when I get a chance. I can always put the iron one in with the new plastic bushing. Thanks for the heads up!

buckshot500 Be careful not to apply too much force, when twisting it! You'll bend or break something.
The twist feature can easily apply too much force.

It will engage, by just pulling it if you hold the red button in.

Well that, & the splines need to line up first.

I usually do it with a slow roll, & sometimes with slow "S" turns on the steering wheel.

This helps with both engage & disengage.

yburn ya i push the button in and pull it out and then twist it to engage the 4wd,then untwist and push back in to disengage!!I thought mabey it was jacked up b/c of the twisting, wasn't sure if it should just engage by pulling it out. thanks guys!

Coyote_94YJ Ccain is absolutely right on the fire truck and the twisting part. There are 2 ways to use it. You can twist it counterclockwise to engage it or push the button in and pull the knob and release the button before letting off the knob. You can then either twist it clockwise to disengage it or push the button and then push the knob in. My jeep has one for cruise....err excuse me auxillary throttle. And I use them all the time on our fire trucks.

yburn ya that is it. I wasn't sure if i should have to twist it.thanks!!!

ccain yburn, it sounds like you're running a vernier cable like this one:



And, that's how they work. Most fire trucks use them to spool up the engine when the PTO is engaged to power the pump. You turn them to get them to engage. You can just push the red button and pull it on and push it off. This is the kind of cable I'm thinking of getting to use as a hand throttle.

crafty I have to turn mine most of the time.
