D300 won\'t go into 4-Lo(was 83 CJ...tranny)

I checked to see if the piece connecting the two rods going into the case was aligned. It seemed to be, but the darn thing still won't engage into 4lo. My question is, if it goes into 4 hi so easily, does that mean there is something wrong with the gear that is engaged when it's in 4lo. Is there anything easier to do, other than rip the x-case out and get a good look inside. I checked the fluid level, it's ok. I tapped on the bracket that connects the throw rods to see if I could bump it in but no luck. It's starting to worry me...

thanks,
Jud

I am not sure if this will help or not, Jud...but here goes. Are you trying to shift it sitting still? I know my 86 cj7 will not shift out of or into low unless I am moving and the tranny is in neutral(auto), and even then I sometimes have to do it several times. hope this helps, Ben

I've tried it standing still, drifting, and any other imaginable position, in and out of neutral. Still won't go. I think it has something to do with the broken piece I found on one of the shift rods. It's getting put up on jack stands to fix the frame this week so I might rip the x-case out and look at it too.

thanks,

Jud

Hey dude, i know this sounds weird, but sometimes i can only shift my tcase if im slowly going in reverse and while im letting out on the clutch shift it. Try this a few times with some force too.
Peace
