There is a kit you can buy that will get rid of all that vaccuum actuated crap and you get a handle with a cable, much more reliable and dependable. If you want to stick with the oem crap, there are tons of places that can help you out.

yea, i changed my 87 to a cable actuator, i think the brand was 4x4 posi-lok, was only $280 something for the part and maybe took an hr to install
