    What\'s wrong with my Transfer Case??? Grinding in 4-Lo.............

    Well first off I have an 81' 350/350/NP-208.

    Went wheeling today and when I shifted into 4-Lo from 4HI I got major grinding when I started to drive. I put it in reverse and even worse so I through it in nuetral and put it back in HI and drove out of there. When I got to the bottom I wanted to watch the linkage when it shifts but it just started grinding when it tried to shift in low. Left it alone and drove home /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    I was hoping my linkage wasn't adjusted and slipped, but I don't think so.

    Before everything worked fine and I haven't changed anyhting since last time wheeling in LO

    I have always had problems with it falling out of gear, so I use a bungee cord to hold it where I want.

    Any suggestions???? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Thanks
    Jesse

    My first guess would be that you ruined the shift forks by using the bungee cord. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif They aren't designed to be held against the moving parts inside the case. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    I'd agree that the shift forks are done. Find a good tranny/transfer case shop and go see them. They will tell you with a quick test drive.

    What would cause a t-case to jump out of low range? Mine does this also sometimes. Sorry for the hijack.
