Probably a 208. This came from a auto tranny to sm465 4 speed conversion vehicle I bought. I sold the 465 and the transfercase (probably the 208) since I was putting in a LS, NV4500 and a np241c all into a 1984 K1500
So the 4wd shifter is probably from the np208 era. I found in my trusty haynes repair manual for chevy pickups 81-87 a diagram on the np203, np205 and np208. although it didn't show the shifter for the 208 it did for the other two and they don't match what I got. The diagram did show the rod with the 90 degree short part, and the nut and other items. I have ordered a Haynes repair manual for 88-93 chevy pickup manual for reference. It should cover the np241c for me.
below are the pics for what I have for the shifter. I know I have the linkage parts between the shifter and the TC - just where in the various totes I have I don't know.
I did clean up and paint the shifter itself and the guide plate, the 2 left items in the 1st pic. I like cleaning and painting old parts to give them some more life, even if they only have surface rust.
