Dustin, There should be 2 tapped holes on the right side of the 420. I took a piece of 3/8''x 1.5''flatbar and drilled 2 holes in it to match the holes in the side of the 420. I then unbolted the tcase shifter rod from a LC 3spd tranny. I put the tranny/tcase together and put the shifter linkage on the rod removed from the 3 spd tranny. I then hooked the linkage up to the tcase and marked the position of the shifter rod where it touched the flatbar bolted to the side of the 420. I then took the flatbar loose and drilled a hole for the shifter rod to bolt through. It may take you a couple of tries to get the linkage to move freely but it isnt too difficult to do yourself if you have a drill and a metal cutting saw of some sort. Hope this helps..sorry I dont have a digital camera to show you pics.

I'm hoping that I can jump in on this because I am doing the swap to a 420 next week. Rustyb's sounds good but if someone has pictures that would help greatly also. Flexin40 looks like he may have it figured out and I could pull the pictures from his post pretty soon? Or maybe someone could email me pics ? [email protected] or [email protected] Or another option would be if someone could steer me in the right direction to a website that has pics. Thanks in advance for any help and photos.

Here is the best way I can explain what I did without having any pics. I looked at my original tranny/tcase linkage setup and thought about how I could duplicate this using the 420 tranny. The best way I could figure to do this was to bolt a plate to the side of the 420 and attach the linkage to that. If you take all of your linkage and hook it up to the tcase, you will get a good idea of where the linkage needs to hit the plate bolted to the tranny(assuming that you have the tcase/tranny mated as it will be after final assembly). My tcase is not clocked so I dont know how that may affect you if yours is. Hope this helps some.

crawlin.. rustyb's explanation is what I also did. Where we difer, I believe, is we used a plate from the rear of the top cover welded to the modified shift lever guide. And plate bolted in a tapped hole in the trans welded to the shift link lever (the shift lever is attached to this)mounting stud. The high/low shift rod had to be shortened. These terms are from the Haynes manual. Here again you have to start with the shifting assembly in the shift shaft of the t-case and work backwards to fabricate your mounts to the trans. My sons truck used the Wardens adapter and mine has an AA adapter. Both clocked the t-case. But both turned out similar. I was able to get some pictures on my AOL home page
Green Toy bear with me while I try to add some more and edit the page.
Would be nice to be able to upload a pic directly.
