Help Needed! 5 speed swap stuck in 4hi

Recommended Posts

So i have an 84 GL wagon, just finished the 5speed swap. The 4wd is stuck in 4hi. not with the shift linkage or with pry-bars am i able to move it to 4low or 2wd. I'm supposed to make a few hundred mile drive tonight and I don't suspect id be doing very well on the "new" 5speed stuck in 4wd. Any clues, hints, advice would be greatly appreciated

You could make it just fine in 4wd hi if you couldnt get it unstuck. Weird that it's stuck in. Mine i was able to pry out using a pry bar. Hopefully someone can help you out

there is a cover plate on teh top of the tailsection.  4 bolts remove it to examine the 4wd shift collar/fork.

 

there are 2 shafts that get interlocked by a set of spring and "pill" shaped pins.  If the D/R select rod gets twisted while pulling it can cause the fork to blow out....basically breaking...so the interlock pin will not let the shaft grab the 4wd fork.

 

gotta just inspect and see.....all the pieces can be replaced with the trans toghether....in or out of the car.

get one siode off the tar - not your next doors grass - someone further away, let it rip and as you reach for second, knock it in to FWD again. Actually, I got it so bad, found just jack up the rear wheels and it slips out of the diff bind. I had a wall in front of me and could not go either direction or turn stering wheel ! As soon as back wheels off the ground got the clink noise :)
