How do you adjust linkage for transfer case

(1) Shift transfer case into 4L position. (make sure your shifter is fully in the 4L position)
(2) Raise vehicle.
(3) Loosen lock bolt on adjusting trunnion (Fig.
(4) Be sure linkage rod slides freely in trunnion.
Clean rod and apply spray lube if necessary.
(5) Verify that transfer case range lever is fully
engaged in 4L position. (you can do this under the vehicle at the transfer case)
(6) Tighten adjusting trunnion lock bolt.
(7) Lower vehicle

Basically, you are just ensuring that the position you put the lever inside the vehicle is the same position that the transfer case lever is in and then tightening the locking bolt.

Tighten side mirror

If the mirror housing is loose and nothing has hit it and broken the mounting to the door frame, yes. If it is the glass part that is loose and it is a electric or manual mirror, something has damaged it behind the glass replacing it will fix problem.

Where to add side mirrors on a 58 ford Fairlane

I've had the same quandary with my 59 Ford Custom 300 and the more of them I've looked at, the more I've noticed it seems to be personal preference. Mine are currently positioned just to the side of dead center on the top and directly across from the hood cowl side to side. I've seen some positioned on the fender just ahead of the doors or even on the doors to about a third of the way down the fender. I'm getting ready to move mine rearward, I like the look. It's all your vision, my friend. Good luck!

It starts to swerve to the left or right without turning the wheels almost like your swerving back and forth

sounds as though you have play in steering gear box- most of the time thier is a lock nut on top with a slotted screw in middle loosen lock nut and tighten screw then reset lock nut. do not over tighten slotted screw in fact tighten and then back off half turn so steering box is not too tight.

How do i replace the ignition switch in my 94 couger

Removal & Installation
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove the upper steering column shroud by removing the self-tapping screws.
  2. Unfasten the four bolts retaining the lower steering column shroud, then remove the shroud.
  3. Remove the lock screw, and detach the ignition switch electrical connector.
  4. Rotate the ignition switch lock cylinder to the RUN position.
  5. Remove the two screws retaining the ignition switch, and disengage the ignition switch from the actuator.
To install:

NOTE A new replacement switch will be set in the RUN position as received.

  1. Adjust the ignition switch by sliding the carrier to the ignition switch run position.
  2. Check to make sure the ignition switch lock cylinder is in the RUN position. The RUN position is achieved by rotating the ignition switch lock approximately 90 degrees from the LOCK position.
  3. Install the ignition switch assembly into the column actuator hole. It may be necessary to move the ignition switch slightly back and forth to align the ignition switch mounting holes with the lock cylinder housing threaded holes.
  4. Install the retaining screws and tighten to 53–71 inch lbs. (6–8 Nm).
  5. Attach the electrical connector to the ignition switch. Tighten the lock screw to 7–11.5 inch lbs. (0.8–1.3 Nm).
  6. Connect the negative battery cable. Check the ignition switch for proper function, including the START and ACC positions. Also, make sure the column is in the LOCK position.
  7. Install the upper and lower steering column steering shrouds.

The glass in the driver side rear view mirror is loose. how do you tighten it up?

The driver and passenger side mirrors have a small rubber plug in the bottom center of the mirror housing. Remove the plug and there is a phillips head screw holding the mirror assembly. Tighten this screw about 1/8 turn and it will keep the mirror from moving around. If you remove the screw you can remove the mirror and drive motors. Use a bit of thread-lock to keep the screw from loosing again. Reinstall the rubber plug.

Side mirror is coming loose from where the mount connects to the body. The top section is what is loose. Nothing hit this so I am not sure why its loose or how to tighten it. Thanks

You'll probably have to remove the sail panel (the triangular trim piece on the inside of the door which is positioned where the mirror base is). When you do that, you'll see that the mirror itself usually has studs that come through from the outside, and there are nuts on the inside that tighten down onto them to hold the mirror. Make sure that all the nuts are tight. If not, tighten them down.

What may have happened though, is that someone could've hit the mirror when you weren't around, and damaged something. It wouldn't always immediately sag or fall off, so it could've happened awhile back and you're just now seeing it.

Chances are though that the mounting nut/stud is the issue, and you'll be able to fix it this way.
