Currie Twin Stick Engagement

I have a 83 CJ7 with a 350, 700R, D300 and a currie twin stick set up. I am having a heck of a time getting the twin stick to engage with the various 2WD/4WD HI/LOW gears. Anyone have a similar set up and if so any tips one easy engagement? There is a constant load on the D300 with the auto Trans contributing to the difficulty here however, there has got to be an trick to get the engagement to work easier.

Thanks
Dan

I've had a few issues getting into 4LO.

Do you have the "full conversion"; with the pin removed inside the case? Or just the twin sticks? Mine is just the twin sticks.

Put the transmission in neutral or park, just like you would with a single stick.

Even with the single 'stick' I have found it's sometimes necessary to backup 8-10' in a straight line to take the 'bind' off the drive-line.
Make sure the sticks are not hitting the tunnel to restrict movement.

Thank you for your responses.. Backing up seems to make it a bit easier to engage the gears..
