Transfer Case won't engage into 4WD

My 72 J2000 won't engage into 4WD. The shifting lever moves pretty much freely. It won't go into 4HI or 4LO. From the info I gathered it seems to be a Dana 20. Truck has a 360 and TH400 tranny. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

If it is really moving freely, it is possible that the linkage has simply come loose. If you crawl under the vehicle and check the adjustment point under the shifter itself, you can pull on the shifter lever and see if it just slips along the linkage. If that is solid then it is something in the transfer case itself.
