SMB 4WD Part Question
That's it, can't wait no mo. I'm flying to Texas from OR to pick up my new to me '03 SMB. Found the orig owner. Very nice guy. I rolled the dice and I came up sixes. Fresh transmission! He indicated there is a shift rod/linkage (threaded both ends) about 24" long that used to come loose now and then (linkage to shift into/out of 4WD (no, I don't know if it was for the rear or front axles)). Eventually, it unthreaded on both ends and it was lost. If you know what I'm talking about, can anyone give me some demensions of the rod (guessing there are actually two of them, one for each lever, but I dunno)? If doable for a quick fix, will pick up a piece of all thread to make it work for the trip home (will be going through some high country and would like to at least know I have 4WD in case I need it). Flying out at 5:20am, so no time to order the part from SMB. Also, since I don't actually have the vehicle in my hands yet, I have no idea about size, thread pitch, etc. Two words: Red Loctite!Thanks folks.
