Image
2. Remove the detent plug on the drivers side of the t-case using a 6mm allen wrench.

6. With the magnet in position under the shift rail, tap out the roll pin with a punch.

7. Using needle nose pliers, remove the roll pin from the magnet. If the pin falls into the case, roll the case over and remove it.

10. Continued - When reinstalling, note the orientation of the shift rail. If the shift rail is inserted into the t-case incorrectly, the t-case will not shift properly. The three grooves on the shift rail should be facing out with the one groove on the opposite side facing in.
Image
11. Using the needle nose pliers, hold the shift fork in place while sliding the shift rail into position. Be sure to maintain the proper orientation of the shift rail (see note above).
Image
12. Align the shift rail hole and the shift fork hole with each other using a long pin punch.

Image
14. Firmly tap in the roll pin until it is nearly flush.

16. Drop the detent ball spring into the same hole.

Image
17. Insert the detent plug into the hole using a 6mm allen wrench. Turn the t-case back over.

Image
18. Using the original shifter base bolts, install the new gasket and twin shifter on the top of the t-case. Torque the bolts to 8-11 ft./lbs. with a 12mm ratchet.
Image

NOTE: When re-installing the t-case into the truck, make sure to sufficiently clearance the transmission tunnel, seats, or anything else that may come in contact with the shifter. Failure to do so may result in contact with the shift levers and can cause the shifter base to crack or break.
