    I am try to get setup twinstick, I can not get it to go into front low. I can get it to do ,rear high, rear low, front high, 4wd high, and 4wd low. Do I need to grind more of the the rail?

    Are you making sure the rear is in N before trying fornt low? If so, grind some more. I used the distance between the rail poppet indentions as a measurement on how far to grind past the original interlock location. HTH

    Just did a twin stick today. I ground the new areas approx. 3/8" to 7/16" back from the originals. I duplicated the abrupt end of the one and the slope of the other. No problems work the first time. Hope this helps.

    I am starting to gather all the parts to do a doubler and I am also thinking about the twin stick. What is involved in making it a twin stick? Is there a write-up anywhere on it? TIA

    I just did this mod over the weekend. Before you can shift to front low range only, you need to shift your rear into neutral, this will allow the range range front output rail pull forward the rest of the way. It will also work when you have your rear shift rail (the one you modified) shifted into low range, then you can pull the front into low.

    hey I just did this over the last couple days and they both seem to shift great except..............

    I was playing and looking at the rear output. when I put the rear into Neutral it still gets power from the input. I"ll get a pic later today and post it to show what I"m talking about. Isn't the rear supposed to go neutral? as in no power and engage the front.

    Just did mine, already got the pics to write an article. I wasn't really happy with the others I found. Pics and explanations lacked quite a bit IMO. You'll have to wait till the Memorial Day mad rush is over though.

    Try holding the rear yoke still while you turn the input. You may just be getting a viscous coupling of sorts.

    it all works good it's just that the rear dosen't ever truely engage a neutral standing it always turns somewhat. errrrrrrrr :mad:
