    the shifter for the t-case in my '73 seems to be too easy to pop out of gear... i.e. is there some sort of position detent that could be worn out? hope this question makes sense.
    thanks

    check the linkage, if you look at both shift rails, each one has a hole, stick a nail or pin of sorts thru both and adjust them.

    Most of the time, just gotta take the shifter off, take it apart, flush out all the mud and grime, grease it, put it back together, adjust it right.... and it'll fix it!

    Know the feeling,
    I took it apart and fabbed another lever. So now I've got a lever for lock/unlock and a second lever for low/high. Been running this way for six years, so far so good.

    Try this.... put it in gear, then disconnect the linkage and drive around and see if it stays in gear. Mine would still pop out of gear. Then I went with a doubler /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif. I also know there is a trick where you take out a sping and put a washer in there to put more force on the spring. Try to use the search feature (probably won't work) to find something, if you can't I explain it. Good luck.
