Transfer Case

When shifting the t-case from Hi-unlocked to Hi-locked, should I be able to do it by simply shifting the gear lever from right to left OR should I have to go up, over left, and down?

I guess the point of my post was should I be able to go straight over to locked without going up into neutral first (up and over)? Right now I can go from HI-unlocked (lower right corner) right over laterally to hi locked (lower left corner) without going up and over.

Trying to find out if my t-case shifter is busted.

So it is a "H" pattern. You should have to go through that pattern for locked to normal

Frankly I have no idea. But I would first check to see if it is working. Only way I know is to get it on a lift start her up, put it in gear and see if when you change the wheels spin. Be integrating case if they do....but then the Q is "is it locked" or just spinning in L or H normal mode.

I'm done.......sorry

Why do you think something is wrong? The diff lock and the high low shifting is completely separate. They work independently.

The way this guy explains it he can go direct from locked H to normal H without coming down and across the gate. Doesn't work like that in mine.

There is no gate. The two functions have nothing to do with each other.

I'm with Red on this one. Take another look at the pattern on the shift knob. It's a square not an H. No need to up or down to go over into our out of lock.

lock to unlock and vice versa is possible in any range, so as long as you are not spinning... that is if you are traveling above 35mph on high (example towing) and the truck keeps on getting squirmish, you move the lever to high lock and now you have a50/50 split f/r... if you are doing below 35 mph on low range and you are about to climb a hill so you want 50/50split again just move the lever to lock, when done move to unlock while on the move.... hi range to low range or viceversa you must be below 5mph if on the move, or completely stopped and in neutral.
if all is working well you should be able to move the lever any position if fully stopped and in neutral with engine running.. if this is not possible, there is a likelyhood the shifting mechanism is rusty thus binding...
