hey how are you

there is nothing you can do other installing the correct plate for the 4wd .

I believe he is talking about this plate ,in the diagram i sent you .

why don't you send it back and let them install the correct one for you ,whoever rebuild it should be responsible.

I think that is what he is referring to

Unless he meant the valve body was swapped from 2wd to 4wd .I doubt it

let me know more of who rebuild it for you , ?

Please let me know

Thank You
