Re: NV3500 4x4 shifting hard
Someone else had been inside it before and lost some parts. I think they tried to disassemble the shifter so that they could remove the transmission and some parts got lost. The shifter was very sloppy and you couldn't tell which gear you were going into. The only shifter I could find was from a full size Chevy NV3500, but most of the parts were exactly the same. I can't remember exactly what parts I had to use, but I think one of them was a spring. It's been a few years since I did this, so I don't remember exactly.
