    on bottom of shifter (under truck) look for a rod, looks like all thread. follow that down to t-case. where rod meets case there is a block. remove linkage from case , and thread block in or out for what you need to do. Think that linkage is attach to case by a cotter pin. But don't quote me.
     
  5. to do it as per the manual you need to adjust it in 4 high and use a 1/4 inch spacer in front of the rear adjusting nut. tighten the nut agenst the spacer, remove the spacer, move the lingage back to the rear nut and tighten the front nut agenst it.
    kinda hard to explain without a picture. i have the hayns manual and it shows how to do it properly.
