Auxiliary Transmission Shifter Rattle


Recommended Posts

The shifter on my auxiliary transmission, Rockwell T226 transfer case, has an annoying rattle.


The shifter consists of a loose clevis joint at either end of the rod and a metal shifter bolted to the floor of the cab.


I added nylon washers to the lever pivot to take up the slop


I have temporarily reduced the noise by running a bungee cord from the rod to the bed but it is still annoying


The hole in the floor is covered by a thin piece leather, originally there was just a 2"x4" hole in the floor.


The front clevis is a pain in the ass to get to and the pin on the clevis on the transmission is frozen in place.


How can I quiet this noise down

Slide a piece of split foam water pipe insulation over the rod and fasten it with a few zip ties.

My compound shifter of my Triplex is crazy annoying.  I've put heater hose down over it, not doing much of anything.  I have to drive with a finger/hand leaning on the knob to keep myself from going insane on long trips.

The transmission is just plum wore out.   I removed the tower, welded the knob on the bottom and reground it to fit nice and tight in the slots of the shifter slide rods.  I put new clevis's on each rod going to the back box.  Nothing.   I removed the slide rods and confirmed they weren't worn in the bores. Nothing.  I greased it well.  Nothing.


Until I replace the transmission, there is nothing I will be able to do to remove the noise.
