Hi all,
I'm new to the bronco community and have an issue regarding my 4x4 shifter linkage. When I bought the truck, I was aware that the 4x4 was not connected. I took it to a local truck shop, and they bought the shifter linkage that it needed. However, it did not come with other parts it needed to successfully make it work. The shop said it was missing the 4x4 support bracket, and the shifter rod that connects from the shifter, to the shifter mechanism. (I am pretty clueless to what any of this means), but relative to the information that I was given about what it needs, does anyone have a clue what I'm talking about? Or what I could be talking about? and if so-where could I possibly get it? I've called about a dozen places, (and apparently so did the shop with still no luck).
Thanks in advanced.

1356 Manual Shift Wear; "...Manually shifted units usually exhibit wear on the selector shaft in two areas (figure 5). Shaft wear in any form will make the unit disengage or have very sloppy shifting. The star shaped end of the shaft where it mates with the shift cam is also prone to wear. Borg Warner released an updated shift cam with an Allen screw to tighten up the fit and retain the manual lever. Look at the section of the manual lever that rides in the case, which is also subject to wear from dirt and two dissimilar metals in close contact...Always inspect the bore of the case for excessive wear. Figure 6 shows the bore is worn over size and will no longer hold the selector shaft in position. The only way to fix this is to do some machining and sleeve the bore, or to replace the case altogether..."
