|Triple88a||hmmm wird.. mine shifts perfectly with my 2" BL and the drop bracket|
|06-10-2007 09:51 PM|
|tiny terror||Oooooooh. I did that. Loosened the bolt with it in 2wd and then moved it here and there to look, then stuck it all the way back down. Now the handle is level with the console. But shifts like crap. I guess I have some tweaking to do.|
|06-10-2007 09:45 PM|
yeah what Jherrin said.. when i first installed the tranny bracket and all that my shifter would shift to 2wd and would be around the middle of 2wd and 4hi setting inside altough the tcase is all set at 2wd..
I didnt try the 4lo because if i cant get the tcase to fully go into 4lo than whats the point of putting the shifter there and hoping the tranny would shift by it self when you unscrew the adjusting bolt..
Now on the other hand if you cant shift into 2wd even with the shifter all the way there and when you shift to 4low the shifter only goes to around the N area thats the same thing just the other way.
So give that a shot.. shift to 2wd.. (where does ur shifter stop).. unscrew the adjusting screw and move the shifter all the way to the 2wd setting untill it hits the end. get under the rig and tighten it up. Have some one help you.. its much better when some one is underneath the rig making sure the adjusting block is sliding across the rod, for mine it didnt so 20 minutes i was guessing it's mooving while instead it was possibly just bending a bit, i used WD-40 at that point. Better than guessing. Took me half an hour doing it by my self.. would have taken me 5 minutes if some one was there to help me.

|jherrin215||He put it in 2WD, loosened the bolt he showed you earlier and slid the block that the bolt goes into where it needed to be for the shifter handle to be in the correct position. Then he retightened the bolt and wahala! But for me that block would not move, if it does for you it should be a pretty simple fix!!|

|tiny terror||um........ you put it in 2wd, unscrewed, then moved the shifter to 2wd?? huh?|
|06-10-2007 09:24 PM|
Tiny let me gues when in 2wd the shifter doenst quite reach the end where it's suppose to be does it? It stays around the middle of where 2wd and 4hi used to be? for mine i just put the shifter in 2wd and then unscrewed the adjusting screw and then moved the shifter to 2wd and tighten it and walah.
|06-10-2007 09:18 PM|
|tiny terror||Yes, I'm shifting in neutral. Doesn't want to shift, doesn't want to stay in 4low.|
|06-10-2007 09:16 PM|
|06-10-2007 09:13 PM|
back to tiny again what do you mean like crap? like something is stopping it or what? Like if you shuv it in 2wd where does the shifter stay at? You're shifting while the tranny is in neutral right?
|06-10-2007 09:12 PM|
|MR.CLIFFORD||only if you loosen them like you are supposed to.|

|tiny terror||It's fixed... sorta. Shifts like crap now.|

you're no fun we love arguing about nuthing don't we?
|06-10-2007 08:55 PM|
|Scotty355||Everyone is basically correct, the tranny will try to move forward and the angles of everything will also change, let's just agree to that.|
|06-10-2007 08:47 PM|
He is unscrewing the screws i'm talking about, see the long slots? On mine the screws are all the way in the back of those slots.. after a MML the screws move forward
|06-10-2007 08:34 PM|
|Scotty355||That didn't take you long! I assume it works good now?|
|06-10-2007 08:32 PM|
Yeah Blu, I see it's a sorta easy fix now. But just so y'all know, linkage sounds very intimidating. I had visions of something horrible with springs and such shooting every which way when I touched it or the entire thing dropping out because I loosened the wrong bolt.
Thanks guys, I never fail to get the answers I need here.

|bluvikng||All can be solved by the linkage........|

|bluvikng||Triple88a, don't get smart..........Mr. C has done more with Jeeps, than you will in a life time.|

I'm not quite understand MRC, but I'll get it figured out one way or another. Would it help putting the bracket in there now?
|06-10-2007 08:09 PM|
|06-10-2007 08:06 PM|
I gues the "i'm going with scotty" must have thrown me off then I know u've done so many things to rigs thats why i'm wondering
Jherrin ur having the same problem as i was.. the screw needs to be unscrewed a lot not just loosened.. rust and mud may be in the way also.. wd40 did the trick for me as moving it goes
|06-10-2007 08:06 PM|
^ Funny stuff!!
And tiny, my problem was not the linkages needing to be adjusted, it was the drop bracket wasn't tight. I tightened it up when I installed it but it pulled the threads out and would not tighten back up, that's why it was good but now it's bad again. I somehow fit my fat fingers in there and put a nut on each of the bolts and tightened them up and Perfecto, perfect shifting again!! I tried to adjust the linkages but I could not get the rod that goes through the adjusting block to move either way. that was my problem last time as well. But oh well shifts great now!!

if the instructions said not to i gues its good then.. funny how if tiny makes a thread.. we got 20 replies in an hour lol
Mr C reply 9?
|06-10-2007 07:55 PM|
no. Not really. There is a fine line between whether or not I install the drop bracket. I installed the JKS MML/BL combo on Anya's jeep and didn't install the drop bracket because it didn't need it.
Just crawl under there and look at all the linkage stuff. You can get a good idea how the shifter works. I like to pull up on the tcase lever as far as it will go. Loosen the adjuster and move the tcase to full 4lo. Then move the handle where I want it and tighten down the adjuster. I can usually hit it the first time.
