T-case popping out of gear

Hi guys,

My t-case all of a sudden developed the annoying habit of popping out of gear. Only seems to happen when I am fully getting-it . Anyway, I am pretty sure its the linkage as there is nothing else wrong. Well, at least I hope there is nothing wrong with it after I shoved it back in gear going all out.

I thought this was a common problem. Any advise on what to look for or tweak? Thanks.

Made it further than half of the other guys, but the Hammers won.

Make sure that the insulation under the rubber boot isn't pushing against the shift linkage. When there is a sudden power-poweroff-power situation, if there is a slight load pressing against the linkage, it'll want to pop out of gear.

Also, you can check to see if it's engaging fully by getting underneath, taking off the 9/16ths nut, popping off the round slotted plate and shifting it in/out with a pair of small vice-grips. A small light and a mirror might help to see what's up there. Oh wait, you can do it from above if you remove the center console and center seat cover...oh wait, can you? It's been a while since I've been around a stock-ish Defender.

Anyway, if it's not engaging completely you can adjust the throw a bit. Also you can back off the diff sensor out a thread or two, there's the potential interference from that as well.

This is all based off of my LT-230 swap experience into a RRC. There are a LOT of photos in the several threads I wrote over on Pirate to see what parts are involved w/out crawling underneath.
