    in my new suburban ( yeah, not a blazer, but this forum is a little more active then the suburban one) the shift linkage is not connected to the shifter stick. the guy I got it from said that it was a bolt that was proken off, and that its a simple matter of backing the bolt out, and then installing a new one through the stick.

    is this a simple matter? will I be able to reach it without dropping the T case? will it be easier to get it from the top or the bottom, the side, while standing on my head, balancing a jug of water on my foot, etc...

    thankyou in advance,
    -Rich

    This happend to me right after installing my t-case.
    I did it while it was in the blazer, but i have the removable cover in the inside of the cab.
    Just get you a good small angle drill and also a good (preferably a new one) drill bit and a good easy out.
    Make a small pilot hole then use what ever size bit the easy out says to use. I got lucky and mine came right out.

    How do you have a C20 4x4 Suburban? Did someone put it on a 4wd frame?

    nope, its just a really beefy 2wd suburban, that I take/took anywhere, and everywhere thats wide enough to squeeze it through. prolly not the best of ideas, but I always went with a friend ( he has a 76 C10) so that if one of us got stuck, it'd be a metter of getting the towstrap out, and finding a different line. the 73 K20 is a brand new addition ( almost 36 hours old!) and I'm just getting used to having it around. body panel repairs, priming, paint, and windows are the first order of business on the K20.

    You should have the removable cover, so it would probably be easiest to get at it from above (inside the cab). I just picked up a new transfer case shifter bolt from Chevy for my '73 K20 Suburban w/NP205; same as yours. Part number, if you're interested, is GM #14009313. I paid $17.75.

    you have a 502? &lt;drool&gt; one of these years when I'm loaded with Cashmoney.... thanx for the part number info, I'll give them a call, and go pick one up on the way home. I dunno if I have the full removable tranny hump, but after getting a look at the bolts position on the case, I'm really hoping I do....

    Glad to help.

    I hear you regarding the cash money.[​IMG] Hopefully, I'll find some more soon so that I can finally hear that 502 start! Good luck with getting at the bolt.[​IMG]
