Default Transfer Case shifter Cam

Ranger Experts:

Just got a well used 84 ranger 4x4 and I noticed if I shifted into 4H from 2H I could not get back to 2H. I took the boot off the shifter and the plate/bracket the shifter rides through is loose (just sitting there with the shifter lever coming through it. So, when I pulled back the shifter the plate moved back with the shifter. When I pushed it back towards 2H, the plate hits the floor pan and will not move forward unless I guide it under the floor pan.

I imagine this shifter guide bracket is supposed to attach and bolt down somewhere there? How is this bracket supposed to attach?

Thanks!

If you look on the drivers side of the Tcase, you'll see the linkage, the bracket is held on by 1 14mm bolt, it may be behind one of the linkage arms(that's on all the T-Cases Ive seen anyway)

I bet that bolt is just loose or missing, there is also a giant bolt that holds the actual shifter that may also be loose.
