    I figured as much. Couldn't be the shifter being worn and /or grabbing something.i HAD THE TRANNY SWITCHED FROM 2WD TO 4WD BY CHANGING THE OUT PUT SHAFT /NEW BEARINGS AND SYNCROS. TRANNY GUY SAID EVERTHING ELSE LOOKED GOOD.

    How does the end of the shifter look?

    Some of them break the weld, which will loosen the shifter up a fair amount.

    I kind of doubt that will solve the binding issue, however, if the shifter is more positive, it *may* stop it from happening.

    tALKED TO THE TRANNY GUY ,AND HE SAID ITS COMMON FOR THOSE SHIFTERS TO DO THAT IF THEY ARE SLOPPY, BECAUSE THEY'LL GET CAUGHT BETWEEN THE TWO SHIFTER RAILS. IF I DO RECALL I DIDN'T SEE ANY O-RINGS EITHER. I'LL SEE IF I CAN GET THE PARTS AT THE DEALER, OR AT LEAST GET A DIAGRAM(DIMENSIONS SO I CAN FAB ONE UP) THANKS FOR THE INPUT. I'LL KEEP YOU INFORMED. P.S. GLAD TO BE HERE.

    Anyone got the specs on the o-ring or a link? I have had the same problem a couple of times with mine.

    I just used o-rings that fit kind of snug. I have a assortment box of them, so I just picked two out of it.
