    Cannot get into 4 lo. Can get it in from underneath, shifter does not go that extra mile for 4 lo. I don't need the linkage just the shifter.

    Got one coming. Thanks

    Before replacing, have you tried spraying lube up into it see if it frees up? They are NOTORIOUS for this when they dry out.

    Why don't you just twin stick it? We used to have a 203 and the mechanism destroyed itself. I took the stock lever and bolted it to one of the linkages and fabbed up another lever and bolted it to the other linkage and never looked back.

    Twin Stick Build

    Don't throw your old shifter away - Here is a pretty good article to build a twin stick for the 203 using two 203 shifters if you are interested.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I printed out the "how To" from AZ79K5Project. I'm hoping the shifter I have coming will do the trick. If not I'll try the rebuild to a twin stick.

    The response I posted was for justhorsinaround and my thanks is genuine. The How To, however, gives me the pictures. I've not done any fabricating of parts nor have I figured out how the shifter I have actually works either. I took apart a junker and for the life of me I couldn't see how that spring loaded rod engages the lever to get into low.
