One is the diff lock for the 4 speed combo transmission/transfer case isn't it? The one with the early V8 engines?

Thanks guys. The one by the fuse box turns, doesnt pull like the latch release on the late model 90s. And the engine is diesel w/ 5 speed- would the other knob reason still hold true?

Nope. The seat box mounted diff lock knob was just for the lt95? transfer case used on v8. Also I'm just using easy chair w/ google skills. I've never actually seen one of these.

Any chance it was converted from v8? What's your vin, if you don't mind sharing?

Micro cat says it's a 2.5na, manual transmission, 110" wheelbase, LHD, station wagon.

I guess I'll let the experts weigh in because I'm completely wrong.

What is on the other side of the knobs? Wiring? Cables?

First thought was hand throttle (optional accessory)

Agreed pro lever. Wonder what it used to power.

A strange place for it, but maybe a hand throttle?

That's a genuine LUCAS Bi-Polar panty magnet. Don't turn it on with your wife in the car.
