See my profile. ME CJ GUY. Will hump over tranny come off to access tranny, as in CJs? If so can you remove top of tranny to inspect bottom end of shifter?(Test its operation in a vise, to determine if its shifter or deeper into tranny). Move gears, w/ fingers as if were shift forks, remember only 1 fork moves at a time. MAKE SURE shifter + gears are in original locations for reassembly. Sounds scary, gotta learn sometime ! BE CAREFUL ----CHOCK WHEELS----REMOVE POS BATT CABLE. No accidental cranking or rolling gear movements. I'm here if I can help steer you all I'm able. Those PESKY 4X4 sales magazines you get in mail, may show you tranny exploded views to aid in broke stuff I.D.
