NP205 ?

I have a 1976 NP205 the shifter is broken off half way up. is the bolt holding the shifter to the transfer case right hand thread or left hand thread? I don't want to break it off in the case. I've been spraying it with P.B. blaster for a couple day's and it wont budge. Will heating it up with a torch hurt it any?

Well, I haven't ever taken that bolt off mine but I can't see why it would be anything but normal thread.

Heat works wonders, but after you heat it, dont spray any thing on it, as if flammable, you will have a blowtorch(learned from experience[img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]) Its a cast iron case, heat wont hurt it at all.

It's normal (right hand tight left loose). They usually come out pretty easy... The adapter is cast iron and I wouldn't recommend getting a torch anywhere near it.... Try a long power handle it's a 1/2 inch bolt (should be 3/4 socket) and might require a little muscle to break loose.

If it's the bolt that connects the lever itself to the case and the bolt it pivots on with a zerk fitting, it's a 15/16th's and came out for me rather easily. I very recently fixed mine.

I got it switched. I had to take the floor section out, and use a propane torch and a breaker bar. My part's truck was a Iowa snowplow truck since 76 everything was extremly rusty.
