Transfer Case shifter Hard to move!

hello!

i bought 1995 yj last week
2.5" lifted
1" transmission drop
5 speed
np231 transfer case
4.0L

Transfer Case shifter Hard to move from (2H) to (4H) and harder in (N) and (4H)


the previous owner said that he changed the fork inside it.

my previous xj transfer case shifting was smoother than the YJ.

any idea

thanx in advance

If he changed the fork inside chances are somethings wrong with the fork then. Never encountered a problem like this but it sounds like it would be a problem with the install he did possibly. Why did he change the fork in the first place?

He messed something up. you might want to take it out and have a look. The t-case is very simple to remove.

but first, I would go underneath and have someone shift it. look for any binding in the linkage. Start with the easy things it could be.

The shifter is a pretty simple piece of equipment. More than likely its just a little rusty. Also the difference you feel in the shifter between a yj and your xj is because they use completely different shifters. YJ transfer case shifters are mounted to the transmission while XJ transfer case shifters are mounted to the body. And the "fork" you mentioned? Are you referring to the axle disconnect fork? If so that part shouldnt effect how hard the shifter is to move.

Mode Shift Fork in side the transfer case.
