4WD shift linkage.

Last year when my front drive shaft went out, it bent and broke my 4WD shift linkage.

The truck is an 87 F250 4WD C6 6.9L diesel. I can't seem to find the shift linkage for sale anywhere. Junkyards, ebay, craigslist, aftermarket stores.

Does anybody know where I may be able to purchase this, or have one for sale, or know another term for it I could use to search it.

Very good, and I did the same. I have been going through these threads and have yet to find anybody linking to a site to purchase one.

Lots of threads on how to lube them, but mine is far past that.

Hmm. Not sure what catagory he searched under on Rock auto to find it. Also, I don't know what that fancy looking thing in your pictures is, but if that is what he was talking about I don't think that is what I need.

I need the entire linkage from the shifter down to the transfer case. Now that I think about it, my 4wd shifter isn't mounted to anything, I can just pull it up inside the truck. Is it supposed to have some sort of solid pivot mount? If so, I may be in more trouble than I first thought even.

I just hate laying in the snow under the truck to put it in 4WD.

I'll search around again tomorrow after work.

I've seen drive shafts do some damage after breaking loose but this one takes the prize.
I think a bungee cord is more appropriate in this case.

If I would have only known, but I gave a linkage away like the one you needed to someone who bought my old M5OD and he probably won't need it.

Aww )=

Lol, I replaced the transmission and tcase (There was a huge hole in the tcase) and repaired the wiring and body damage. Just woke up to find snow on the ground outside. Hope I don't need my 4WD this morning.
