Tracker Transfer Case Woes
Well, the Tracker's back on the road again, after costing me nearly $700 to find out I had a bad ground and a cracked firewall where the clutch cable passes through. If I had found it myself it would have been a $4 fix, but I didn't, so I'm pretty *&^@ off at myself.
After having the tranny in & out 4 times, the transfer case has decided to quit shifting correctly. (Not at all into 4low). I've had the lever out, the cover off and tried to line the 2 shift rods up to look like the pictures in the FSM. Lining up the slots makes the shifter totally unmoveable. Pushing the 4 high rod forward (into 2wd) before reinstalling the lever is the only way I can get it into 2wd. I know there is an interlock ball between the 2 rods, is there a way it could be misplaced? How do I fix it without tearing down the transfer case?
All suggestions gladly considered.
