    My 208 is without any add ones so I'm trying to build some linkage for it. I'm guessing the forward pivot was actually part of the shifter?
    I just need to make sure I make this thing shift the right way.

    The 208 is easiest to make linkage for . It just goes forward and back like a transmission shifter . The factory has a little side motion to clear the stop before you can go into low , but the case itself just has a normal detent lever .

    I took a snapshot out of a pdf file I have :

    thanks so when set up right, as you pull back on the shifter the tranny linkage goes forward and vise versa if ya push forward on the shifter?

    yes its just a threaded rod so u can make it longer or shorter for adjustability and u hit the nail on the head, pull back on shifter and t case shifts forward to 4 low and push forward on shifter and t case shifts back to 2hi
