I'm trying to stuff a pb 4wd 5pd trannie into a twagon I have. Can I run 2 wires from the connector coming from stick shift to the 2 vac. sol.'s under the hood. I've got 4wd light sorted out, I just need to figure out how to actuate the sol.'s

Should be 3 wires on the stick for the pushbutton. 1 power in, 2 power out. Those run to the hot side of the solenoids, then just ground the black wires off the solenoids and you're good to go.

Just wondering, but can the pushbotton be converted to a lever shift? I haven't had any problems with mine engaging, but I just don't like pushing a bottun to engage the 4wd.

I would have to find a d/r tranny around here, which is easier said than done in this neck of the woods, and I can't afford to have one shiped.

A cable shift setup would be easiest, thats what the vacuum actuator moves to shift the tranny. take a look under the car, the actuator is on the left of the tranny with a cable leading to the right of the tranny.
