Fabricating your own transfer case shifter seat

Here's something I came up with after finding out that the seats were no longer available from Suzuki. Dunno how it'll last, but it's gotta have *at least* as long a lifespan as the original.

Hope this helps someone.

Jimny's mailbox was too full and I had to resend the article. He's working on it now.

Yeah, it was you asking about it that kept it in my mind. And then Russ mentioned using a tail piece on sumpin else and it all clicked. Looks like it'll work good, too.

I was down at the hardware store last weekend, as our shower faucet is leaking, and noticed something that might work as a drop in replacement for the shifter seat. It was only $3.49, so I bought one, took it home, and pulled a shifter off that had a seat. The original seat is a bit larger in diameter, but this one fits. I put it in, installed a shifter, and it moved freely. The case I tried this on was not installed, but it fit good enough that I plan to try it in the V and drive it around the yard. It id Delta part number D-153 I believe; I'll let everyone know how it works!
