4x4 shift linkage compatability
Hey guys names bill in new to the forum. I have a few years of auto repair and customization behind me but I've come across something that's stumped me. I have an 89 f250 it has a 5.0 with the m5r2 and it's 4x4 can't remember which t-case I have. But anyway I bought an 87 f350 (haven't gotten it home yet) it does run and drive. but that has a 460 5spd I believe it's a zf and 4x4. My problem is the location of the shift lever for the t-case. My truck has it on the side of the trans hump, the 87 it's in the middle slightly further back and to the drivers side of the shifter. I'm trying to find out if I'll be able to keep mine where it is seeing as I just welded new floors in and had to fabricate the drivers side of the transmission tunnel where the shift rod hole is for my 4x4. Any help would be appreciated thanks Bill.
