Engaging low ?

I have a 95 d90 and I recently ran off road around the house for a little bit and noticed the transmission kept popping out of low to neutral. I literally had to hold it in place a bit. I any ideas on what would cause this. The tranny was recently out for the some work if that gives any clues. Thanks.

sounds like the linkage on the transfer case needs to be loosened up, good chance it was rarely put in low, I would dry to put some silicone on it, if that doesnt work remove the linkage and free everything up and make sure it is working. a good techinique is to point the truck downhill (if you can find one in Wilmington) let the truck slightly roll as you manually push it in low, you should feel it drop in, most times after you do this several times it will loosen up.

in all seriousness he did some work on Ryan's transfercase and the linkage was messed up after that. So if Joe did the work we did have a bad experience with him and the linkage, it wasn't a big deal, its just that in low it was like you ran out of room before you could get it all the way in. It had to be readjusted, but it was visually different in the truck, when you got in you could tell it wasn't right.

I cut a short piece of 1"x2" pine with a notch in one end for the T'case lever in my Series coiler to hold it in lo. Just stick it between the firewall and the lever, a very "Series" fix. Now if I just put a LRNA part number on it I can sell them for 80 bucks!
