I put my vise grip on it and tried to shift it but it would only move one click and not allow the adapter to slide down in place. I will give it another looking at tonight...maybe bend it into submission.

At this rate I should have it done in about a years time.LOL

Don't force it. It appears the shift rod is installed wrong on the transfer case

Take off the cross shaft housing and have a look. The fork is located on the shaft with a grub screw that goes into a hole on the shaft inline with the external selector. I'm not sure how it is possible to have been put together wrong.

Ok I see the correct orientation and it is not like mine. It could be installed wrong or I have not shifted it enough to clear? How many click positions does the shifter have...I can move it 1 click = 2 positions.

It shouldn't go "flat" pull the housing and check to see that the fork is in it's proper position sitting in the shift rod. Pretty sure it's not...

Rotate the gears (both flanges or one of them with the diff locked) and try to shift it while rotating the gears.

Does anyone in WA/OR/ID have a GM gen IV or LS truck I can look at before I spend a million dollars doing the swap on my Ninety? Anyone taking their GM engined Defender to the Portland ABFM in September?

Check with Doug, I know there is a local that has an LS powered RRC. Maybe he will know someone with a Defender.

So it seems there are different levers depending on your engine code and Ashcroft made mine accordingly.:face palm: I do not know if the levers are different but it looks like I could just loosen the set screw and adjust the lever position?
If this does not work does anyone have a housing and lever for sale.

At least on mine, the set screw goes into a hole so it will only work on one setting.

Frank, that LT230 is from a RRC right? Any chance you could take a close up photo with the neutral warning lamp switch removed? I am considering drilling/tapping a hole in my housing and adding this sensor. I have a spot that looks like to might be the right spot, but it isn't any thinker there and the circle area is not flat, but at a bit of an angle to the rest of the side go the housing so might not be a good spot for it.

Also, is this really only detecting neutral, or does it indicate high versus low? Because that's what I'd like it for.

quick edit, hi-low is on the output housing, you can see it the second pic
I have a couple of front output housings too, if you need one with the sensor (trade or something)

We are using the stock xmemeber with a 1" piece of steel to lower it in my RRC.

Can't help but mention I owned a RPI Stage III 4.6 and it was lackluster at best. Rebuilt top end 2x and set it out back to rust after 45k miles. Don't mean to sidetrack discussion but I still have hard feeling 4yrs and $10k later.

Does anyone know the Diameter of the stock maf tube for a 5.3? Wondering if we have to use the adapter and an older style MAF or if we can use something like this and the stock sensor.

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0035GZSP8/...F4JMRJ1X39CB36

Of course spectre only makes a 3 and 4 inch version, where the old style had a 3.5 inch inlet i believe...

Each different style MAF requires a different calibration table. They are not directly interchangeable. LS2, LS1, LS3, and truck. Changing a the tube size for a cartridge MAF requires a new table. It will run lean, and may throw codes if out of range. I install the LS2 MAF table my customers for this conversion.
