disconnected the tubing to pull it through the firewall but did it without thinking. is this the right order that they connect into the  L shape connector?

I've seen that exact same picture in a transfer case theory text book. picture is courtesy of Chrysler corporation, but they don't tell you that the vehicle is an eagle in the caption below the picture.

Of course they would not do that.  AMC never existed in their minds.

I just went and looked in a drivetrain textbook I have, and it has that picture too.  I didn't have my Eagle back when I was using the book, so I never noticed.

Jeep also used that system in full sized rigs '82 till just before the Chrysler takeover.  It can be easily modified to the shift on the fly used in later models if you permanently engage the front axle.
AMC/Jeep gauges are for amusement only. Any correlation between them and reality is purely coincidental!
