    The linkage is fully adjustable and doesnt need to be cut/welded. He's smoking crack. Dont let him do it.

    He's talking about cutting the INTERNAL linkage, the thing that is attached to the tCase, I don't know what it's called. Is this a BOGUS deal????

    It sure sounds like it. YOu dont need to cut ANY linkage to get the thing adjusted properly. Grab a Haynes and it will tell you the procedure for adjusting the linkage the correct way.

    Iam not sure what internal linkage he is talking about. On the inside you have gears and two shift forks and thats it. On the outside you have the shift lever which is mounted to the adapter and a small piece of linkage about 3" long attached from the bottom of the shift lever to the shift rails. I havent got a clue what he is talking about.

    If you trust the guy, he's probably not a complete moron, so have him explain exactly why he wants to do this, preferably with a blow up view so you can see what's going on. You shouldn't have problems with a 203 linkage that can't be fixed externally, the shifter arms have all kinds of throw on them and should have enough to shift the differential without difficulty.
