Dear,

The shift positions are marked on the 4WD lever itself.

Hi
have a closer look at the pictures ive put , i know usually the shifts are printed or marked on the levers handle , in this case that handle or what ever it may be called is not of the mm540 4wd gearbox,it belongs to some other 3 shift gearbox. i have a gypsy but the shifts are different than the mm540.
Regards

hello
iam sorry for that, anyways now the mechanic has put some red colour handle on it the shifts on that are something different, ill upload the picture of it too.
iI asked the mechanic how the shifts are and he replied you just have have to shift the lever down and the 4wd is on , then i asked him what about the high low neutral etc he said theres nothing like that , man i was worried i thought what has he done or iam done if he has done something like that lol. but later the next day i think he figured it out and told me about the shifts. But he still says there is no neutral to it. i just told myself after he completes the job ill figure it out .
Regards
