Is there an adjustment of the D/R seleltor handle. My 82 wagons handle has to be pushed down tight the center console to be in 2hi where my 82 brat sticks up an inch or so and is easier to grab onto. Also when in 4hi the switch isn't in the right spot to make the light in the dash come on until its in 4lo. There has to be some kind of adjustment?

IIRC, the linkages are accessible if you remove the interior plastic trim over the selector.

I've had the entire cover off already there is no adjustment at that point. Its only a nut which secures the handle to the linkage going to the tranny.

Well, you are right. But after looking at my parts car, I have some better info.

Does your selector actually select both hi/lo and 4wd/2wd correctly TOGETHER? In other words, since the one lever actuates 2 separate rods, are the rods sychronized? If they are, then the lever needs an adjustment, and if not then one rod or the other needs adjustment.

It looks like the lever's pivot is on an assembly whose plate is bolted to the center body "tunnel" with slotted holes in the plate. If the lever position needs adjusting (probable) then this is where I would try it.

The adjustment for the hi/lo rod is accessible from the engine compartment, being below and towards the centerline from the starter.

Hope this helps.
