No 4 low, 4 high works, can the central axle disconnect be to blame?

Pardon my redimentary understanding of the 4WD system, but I have been addressing other issues in the hopes of taking a fully functional YJ for some real off-road action. My problem is getting into 4 lo. At park it seems to slip in, but when in gear it grinds terribly until I pop it out. 4 hi works. My neighbor said it may be the CAD fork not engaging and suggested the OX lockign cable for the CAD. Is that right? If the fork was the issue wouldn't 4 hi not work too?

BTW, after reading this forum I went with a MC2100 and the TFI upgrade and couldn't be happier. I just got it dialed in and MAN what a difference from the old edelbrock that was on there. If I can get the 4 lo figured out and do something with my sagging RC front springs, I'll be in business.

No it would not be your CAD system, as you thought.

I would look at your Z gate shift & linkage as possible suspects.

Sounds like the linkage needs adjusting to me.
