Manual 1354 questions! Help!

Where the shifter mounts to the tranny, does that huge bolt move? Mine must be seized up or something. I see where there are 2 holes for the shifter to bolt to though.

Next is, where the linkage connects to the t-case to move it through the gears of the t-case, how in the heck does it 'mount'?

Mine has like a slot on the linkage then on the t-case there's like a pin, but I can't figure out how it would stay on that pin? Help?

theres a plastic bushing that goes on the shifter and the pin on the lever of the t case slides on that bushing. i had to get a new bushing for mine as the one on the bronco II shifter was a mess.

the large bolt once tightened will not move, the shifter pivots on that bolt and that also has a plastic bushing.

this is the only pic i have of my getto fabbed set up

This pic is looking towards the rear of the truck (the big bolt is not screwed in, as it is basically frozen):

This is looking at where the shifter 'shifts' the t-case:

OK.. I am going to try and post my pix in the order you have yours posted..... we will see how that works!!


1 The 'bolt'... Ok... you need to back that bolt out... put some anti seize on it or grease and just thread it in to clear out those threads.. it has to be tight, and how it is now aint right... You are also missing another bolt in the mount area.. you can see it in mine...

the bushing is missing for the shifter to t case lever.

the bolt, well your going to have to remove the shifter and take it apart and un freeze the bolt and probley get a new bushing for that also.

i had to do the same thing with mine.


or you could buy a new shifter assmly from ford for 200 bucks
