I'm wondering if the gear is stripped or missing teeth.
Things I've done or checked:
The driveshafts and U-joints are tight, no missing parts.
The transfer case, transmission and rear diff all have oil.
I looked through the rear diff fill hole while spinning the back tires and didn't see anything out of order but I couldn't see the pinion ring.
I have replaced the shifter bushings with shock bushings per someone's suggestion here on the board.
Shifter canes are intact and attached. I've added a couple of washers here and there on the cane ends to take out some of the slop.
Does anyone have any additional things I should check or should I start looking into rebuilding the transmission to replace a stripped gear?
Thanks for your help,
David in Kansas City
