Have you shifted the tc before or is this your first time?

deff not the first time i shifted and almost heard like a chain your 10 speed bike used to make when the chain fell off now its stuck

Sorry dude for the last question,
didn't read your signature till now. I was going to tell you follow directions on shifting, have no other ideas other than you chain might have broken.

Have you tried adjusting your shift linkage and spraying the crap out of it with WD 40 or something..

Find your shift linkage and loosen the adjuster nut on it then follow the linkage to the t case and take a 14mm wrench and turn the nut counter clockwise.. See if that gets you into 2WD.. Then put the handle inside in 2 and tighten it back up..

Spray it and try to shift thru the gears...

Loosen the linkage, and get underneath and use big pliers to move the shift lever on the TC to the 2wd position. If you can't get it into 2wd that way, there's trouble with the TC.

Ok I know this post is old but I got stuck 2 tracking the other day and since then I have a funny "bearing" Type sound coming from the TC and now it won't shift into 4.. And seems like it's not in 2 either.. I tried moving all the linkage and lubed it up real good, everything moves good except for the link right at the TC, it doesn't move AT ALL.. I tried to turn it with giant 2' channel locks but nothing..
