LT230 Stuck in High

Long story short, can't get the lt230 in low range. For my LS swap I bought a low miles pre-'99 Disco t-case from a salvage yard. I probably should have checked it over better before I put it in, but oh well.

I pulled the shift interlock solenoid. Also pulled the linkage housing to rule out any issues with external linkages. I can not get the shift fork to move either stationary or rolling as I apply pressure directly to the rod attached to the fork.

Could there be something jacked up with the gears? Also there's a ball detent acting on the rod attached to the shift fork, could it be turned in so far it's not allowing movement?

Back the adjusting socket screw all the way out and take the detent ball and spring out to see if it's gummed up.

Follow-up: Someone must have been hung over on the lt230 assembly line. The detent ball was cranked in and would not let the shift fork move. Shifts great now.
