• To ALL forum users - As of late I have been getting quite a few private messages with questions about build ups here on the forum, or tech questions about your personal project. While I appreciate the interest, sending me a private message about these topics distracts from, and undermines the purpose of having a forum here. During the day I wear many hats as a small business owner-operator and I work tirelessly to provide the absolute best service possible to you, our valued customer. When I created this forum I rounded up some of the best minds I knew so that any tech question you might have could be asked and answered by either myself or one of my highly experienced moderators, this way the next time this same question is asked the answer can be easily found and utilized by the next IH enthusiast having the same question. This allows me the freedom to run the day to day operations of the business and minimize the impact to shipments and shop activities that these distractions can cause. It is of the up most importance for me to complete the daily tasks in order to best take care of you our customer, all the while providing you a forum to get the level advice and input you have come to expect and deserve from the premier IH shop in the country.

    So with that I ask that anyone with a question about one of our build ups or a general tech question to please use the forum as it was intended. I am absolutely available by telephone to answer your questions as well but at times may direct you back to our website to better field your question or questions. Most other private messages I will be glad to answer for you.

    Thank you for your understanding.

1968 shift linkage

Hi I'm new to this site I have a 1968 travellall 1100 5 speed manual that was 2 Wheel Drive and I'm in the process of converting it over to four wheel drive. I have the front axle installed and the divorced transfer case installed along with the driveshaft to the transmission. I have most of the linkage to shift the transfer case into four wheel drive I was wondering if anybody had a picture of how the linkage bracket bolts up and if it bolts up to the transmission?

I have the setup you are installing in my 68 T-ette 4WD. I'll sneak out and see if I can get some useful photos for you before it starts raining.
Pictures added.
