In need of help

I just recently purchased a 1974 Jeep CJ 5, About a half hour ago I was sitting in it thinking of heading to Big Bear lake and wanted to test the 4X4 for operation, it went into 4 wheel low no problem smooth, with hubs locked I moved up and down driveway everything seemed fine I stoped got out unlocked the hubs placed 4 speed shifter in neutral but when I tried to move the transfer shift lever back to 2H I can't get it to move, am I hosed or is this FNG doing something wrong I tried with clutch engaged and engine running , and with engine off clutch in and out I can't get it to budge, I hope I have not purchased a lemon my wife already has eyes on me for spending the money on a toy in the first place anyone have any ideas?

It usually helps to be moving at least a couple miles per hour when shifting the transfer case.

Any time you run the 4X4 on dry hard surfaces, you will get what is called"wind up". The happens because there isn't a diff in the t case to compensate for the different rotations speed between the front and rear axle.

Soooo......First:
Don't run the rig with the hubs locked and the t case engaged on the pavement. You can run one or the other but not both at the same time.

If you do and can't get the t case disengaged:
1 unlock the hubs. They are spring loaded and if working properly, will disengage themselves when the driveline pressure is relieved.
2 Keep the rig moving while pushing on the t case lever.
3 Try getting a tire in the gravel (while moving and pushing on the t case lever).

Long periods of driving while engaged can damage the drivetrain.
