problem with 3 speed trans

i installed a 1973 3 speed out of a cj5 onto a 1978 360 out of a matador into a 1976 cj5. the problem is
the trans seems very, very low and it is very hard to get in and out of 4 wheel drive. it also hums real loud
and i can only go about 25- 30 mph. it feels like it is stuck in 4 wheel drive but when i shift it into 2wd,
only the back is turning and it still goes the same speed. any suggestions. if it needs to be rebuilt, what
is a fair price to pay someone to do it?

thanks, fatcat

Hey it sounds like the transfer case is stuck in low, i hoped you checked this transfer case before you made the swap, it also could be the linkage under the shift lever. Good Luck, Mike
