I am confused how is the shifter suppose to work and how do you know what type you have I have 2000 disco the shifter to me looks as if it is to go up and down is suppose to go sideways to? according to the picture diagram that is on the console?

it need to go sideways to actuate the CDL. Yours does not go sideways so you change it out for one that does.

This site sucks balls.

It should have 3 positions front to back. The furthest forward is Low range. The middle is neutral and the furthest back is High range. If you try to move it side to side, it won't move.

If you have a CDL in your truck (since its an'00, you probably have one) and want to actuate it, you can use a shifter out of a D1 or out of an 04 D2 (which is very similar to Ashcroft's linkage that Lucky8 sells) or an electric actuator. The 04 linkage uses a cable to actuate the CDL. The D1 linkage is actually a linkage, not cable.

You move the handle side to side to actuate the CDL. To the left is CDL locked/on. To the right is CDL unlocked/off.

Your shifter is centered side to side, you can't actuate the CDL but have one.

This site sucks balls.

if your shifter looks like this in its normal position then you can't move it side ways to lock the t-case.



But you may have the CDL guts inside your t-case so you only need to add the shifter

if so, you can crawl under your truck and turn the "nipple" in the direction shown with a 12mm wrench.


If you dont have the nipple, (like me) you have to add the "guts"

jycsalas,
I have the same setup as you have depicted in the snap shots. I havent looked underneath yet been busy I will look first thing tomorrow and let you all know. I had trouble this weekend I was in the coronado national forest in Az and got stuck my front two wheels were the only thing spinning and my shifter woundnt go into to low. I also had the TC light lit and the mode switch wouldnt go into Manual any ideas? The mode switch went into sport but I did try the stationary in low and also the drive at around 5mph nothing worked. I had to be pulled over the rock by my friends jeep heres the web site no laughing good time tho friends and familyhttp://www.firstchristianatsv.org/tp40/default.asp?ID=10101

Since you can't lock your transfer, it acted like an "open differential" and so power went to the axle(s) with the least resistance which were your front wheels. Your traction control would have kicked in at some point braking the front wheels from spinning and allowing power to the rear possibly getting you unstuck. However, by the time TC would have kicked in, you would have probably dug your self in deeper up front and would have been reving your motor high for a bit.

If you had CDL and locked your transfer case, you would have had equal power going to the front and rear axles and perhaps not had a single issue.

When locked, 50% power will go to your rear axle and the other 50% to the front. Then that 50% will be split (not evenly) to each wheel depending on TC and terrain.

What you experienced was 100% power to your front axle and that 100% got split between the two wheels...maybe 50/50, maybe not.

Also when you are off road and you think you may have the slightest chance at getting stuck, get into Low range BEFORE. Or make sure you can shift without issue... also leave the gear selector in D. Not 1st. the transmission will decide what gear you need thus allowing TC to kick in better/sooner.

GET CDL!!!!

I thank you for your advice and explanation of what had happened. I have been offroading before and also deployed to places that road maitenance wasnt a priority. I will take the shift plate off and look on the transfer case and see what the deal. I will post and keep up on whats up.

You don't have to remove the shift plate to view the t-case as in the picture. I did because the plate was removed while I was installing the CDL. You can simply crawl underneath your truck and feel for the nipple.

I have a 2000 disco, so mine should have the "nipple" on the transfer case, right? Getting ready for my first real off roading in the rover. Just to make sure I understand everything correctly, adding this shifter or switch would be the same and crawling under the truck and turning the bold to lock the differential, just a lot less trouble. I want to install the new shifter, but if I am going this weekend, would crawling under the car work for now?

That is correct just get under it and turn it like in the picture. But practice doing it 1st while its cold as it will be very hot when doing it on the trail. practice your arm positioning

so I crawled under the truck, I think that I did everything correctly, good tip about trying it before hand, it will be tough with everything hot down there. Is there anyway that I can tell that it is engaged? of disengaged? I have a 2000 d2, thanks

once you engage it you will see this light come on.

and an audible tone. When it turns off you will hear the tone again and the light will extinguish

Umm... It won't come on exactly after you turn the "nipple". You have to drive a couple feet forward or reverse. IF ..... and I say IF you have a DIff lock switch connected...

the switch is visible here ) look above the "2009" of the picture time/date
