NP242 Shifting Freely?!

I just rebuilt the back cv joint on my rzeppa front driveshaft and bolted it back in. I went for a test drive and went to shift into 4 part time and full time and the shifter moved back and forth without any resistance. Its stuck in 2wd but the shifter isn't stuck, it somehow slides freely. Anyone have a clue what the issue might be? Could I have hit some linkage bolting the shaft back in or something?

I haven't tried that yet since its pretty late. I'll check tomorrow. The linkage is off the left side of the t-case, right? How would I adjust it if needed?

Im pretty sure they're the same, just wanted to be sure. I think I may have hit it when I was moving the shaft around above the yoke to get the axle end in. I probably hit something then I am assuming. Thanks for the help
