'93 Manual Shift 4x4 Bracket broken off transfer case

This bracket broke, does anyone know the part number and could I get it anywhere else than the dealership? This is the bracket that the linkage connects to manually enagage 4wd to the transfer case

Do some searching - this is a very common problem for shifters that don't get shifted or lubed often.

are you referring to the shifter arm that goes into the transfer case? The 4x4 shifter has a long linkage that connects to this arm?

You should change to an electric t-case so you dont have all these problems...

still not sure I am following you so bear with me. You mean this arm going into the Tcase (the one that looks brownish, with NO hex/allen bolt):



The ONLY hex/allen bolts I know of within the whole Tcase setup are the bolts for putting together the Tcase halves, and the hex bolts for the Tcase shifter to attach it to the side of the tranny:


this shows the shifter out of the truck, with hex bolts in it (actually they are a torq T50 IIRC), and they bolt to the side of the tranny into those 2 holes you can just see through the hole in the floor.

There seems to be a rash of manual Tcase goofiness lately.

But, I suspect in some of the instances it's just a matter of: "You can break anything if you pull on it hard enough."

That's true. Do you think he's talking about that bolt?

This is like a guessing game.

How bout some pics of what you broke and we can then respond on where to get what you need. None of this stuff is actually a "bracket that broke off the transfer case".

Yeah, that's where it ALWAYS breaks. If the mechanism doesn't spin inside the tube, then all the sideways force goes onto that bolt, and the Aluminum snaps.

yes, the cast aluminum piece is the part I need. I am trying to find it, dealership has their issues. They cant give me a part number for some reason. Would anyone know it off hand. or have one they would sell??

If you need the one I have pictured (for an e4od), you can take them the pic, but I'll tell you now it is very expensive from the dealer. It's unlikely someone has one on here they will sell (have not seen one for sale in quite awhile). A junkyard is your likely source, I was able to find one at a yard in Minnesota off a '97 F250 equipped with E4OD for $65, which is cheap.
