4wd not working (not the vac disco/front axle) shifter related.
Ok my 4wd has always been kinda funny. At first the vac disco didn't work so I junked all of it and just locked the shift fork over by moving the c clips on the shift fork like in the write ups on here. After that my 4wd worked most the time but sometimes popped out and made some grinding noises shifting from 4low to 4hi, it's also hard to shift and has play and rebound in the shifter. Now the 4wd won't engage at all, the shifter moves just like before and even goes into 4low with gear reduction, there's just no power to the front wheels. I know the front axle is fine because I jacked up the front tire and spun it and the drive shaft spins like it should when in 4wd. Do you think it's just a linkage adjustment issue? Or something wrong in the tcase.
Also, when the front tire is jacked up and spun and the tcase is shifted to 4wd i hear a slight clicking in the tcase like its trying to engage. Any ideas? Oh also did a TT two weeks ago but the 4wd has worked with it installed so I don't think that is the cause.
