    Working on a 1979 1/2 ton with a 203 transfer case.

    Could not get the truck into lo loc so I decided to inspect, clean & lubricate the shifter. Removed the shifter (was in Hi) and disassembled. Was very careful to remove one pc at a time and clean. Then I lubricated and installed the same way. I am about 90% sure everything was put back in the correct place and order. Can't seem to get shifter back into the same exact shift point when installing. I've tried 3 times but won't shift once installed. Any help or diagrams please.

    Those old 203 shifter mechanisms can be a problem to get (and keep) working correctly when they're old or worn. And yes they can be a little confusing to correctly re-assemble once you have them apart.

    Did you even attempt to shift the T-case by hand while you had the shifter rods disconnected?
