Need help from Transmission Gurus

A friend of mine bought an '85 Wagon. He trailered the Jeep home, and along the way a strap broke, and the Jeep came off the trailer. Luckily, there was no body hurt or property damaged but the Jeep did get some damage. I've fixed everything I could fix for him but there's one item I just know nothing about. When the Jeep came off the trailer and the wheels hit the road, the park mechanism in the transmission (parking pawl I believe it's called) was damaged. The truck has no park what so ever. Its like the transmission is in neutral and could be dangerous if he forgets to set the emergency brake while going into a store or something. My question is: Can the park mechanism in the tranny be replaced without disassembling the whole transmission? I would hate for him to have to pay someone to take the whole transmission apart just to replace one tiny part. If anyone can help, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

Depends on which part is broken. If its the actuator arm on the Valve body, thats all you have to remove. The tab that engages it is contained in the rear housing, so all he would need is a T-case drop. I would start with the pan, should have some pieces laying in there.

So if I pull the pan, I should be able to see the park mechanism and be able to determine which part/parts are broke?

If you see parts in the pan, yes.

Pull the pan and the valve body. You should definitely find some pieces somewhere

The rod on top is what engages park.
