np203 shifting question

Hi, I'm new to this transfer case. I picked one up used for cheap with a th350. I know about it being 4wd all the time. I haven't installed it yet.

The shifter has five positions on it. Hi Loc, Hi, N, Lo, Lo Loc. When I try shifting it, I can only feel three positions. So my question is how do I get it in the other two positions? Is this an issue where my shifter needs to be calibrated and is just binding? I see two linkages coming off of the bottom of the shifter, and one of them doesn't seem to move. Sorry for the noob question, i've been reading alot about it, and haven't found what i've need yet.

Thanks for any info.
Gary

The factory shifter only "feels" like three shifts.
The range shifter from low, to neutral, to high is what you feel.
The differential shifter gives very little feel when shifted, and with the factory shifter the range, and differential lock shifts happen at the same time.
[color=red]I will post a pic of the following later today.[/color]
I have a custom shifter on a 203 that uses two shift levers.
The left shifter operates the range forward for high, midway for neutral, and rearward for low (backwards from factory).
The right shifter controls the transfer case internal front to rear output shaft differential, rearward for unlock and forward for lock.

That would be very cool, thanks. I can see why it would be nice to have two shift levers. Thanks, Gary

The NP-205 can also be converted to a twin stick shifted transfer case allowing 2-HI, 4-HI, N, 4-LO, and 2-LO.
