    Pulled the front axle and driveshaft out of my '78 K5 last summer because of bad CV joint and stub shaft in steering knuckle bearing screwed it up. Been runnin' with the Tcase in Hloc. Today was the first time I pulled the shift lever from Hloc and was going to go to Lloc. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    NOTHING... Dead in the water.. The Tcase lever feels like it's working, can feel different stops as you move the lever. Trannys OK, plenty fluid, linkage works.. Transmission sounds like it is changing gears when going from N to Drive or reverse. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Could it be not going back into Hloc again?? Don't think the shift levers are out of alignment but won't be able to check until next few days. What else could it be?? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    What else should I check?? I can't beleive that luck I've had with this thing the last few months. Any help...

    have you tried puttin a little grunt behind it? In my old 77 the 203 used to get a little pissy, and you had to pull or push it really hard to actually get it in hi loc or lo loc. If you just shifted it normally it would not grab/stay.

    I could be wrong, but it sounds like he has a 203, so no zig zag... it's straight forward and back.

    My only other thought was to get the truck rolling down the street and see if the case would engage Hloc with it moving. Gotta fix it soon... Momma's getin' pissed having to take me to work at 3 in the morning.. /forums/images/graemlins/shame.gif /forums/images/graemlins/shame.gif
