Alright internet world, get ready to have your mine blown. It was the silly cotter pin that has it's own installation hole under the motor. It was sticking out just enough to catch on the set screw that goes in the hole. It couldn't have been sticking out more than a 1/16", but it was enough to stop the motor from getting the locking mechanism completely out of the diff. The more you know I guess... P.S. I'll add a picture later when I figure out how to do it from my phone.
Back from your trip so soon? It's only been hours, so I assume you just couldn't wait! Glad you figured it out.
Sorry if this has been covered before, I had a hard time figuring out how to search for this.Long story short, I built an 85 4runner from the ground up this winter and finally have it driveable so I'm trying to work out some of the bugs.I put an elocker in the front axle and noticed it was binding all the time. I put the front axle on stands yesterday and tried to turn each wheel separately but notice my axle was still locked when the actuator motor was turned off. I pulled the motor off, slid the shift rail over as far as I could, but it still won't unlock. I'm on the road for the next few days so I'm trying to get some pointers for where to start when I get home. When I hit the locker switch, it turns the indicator light on and off, which tells me that the shift rail is moving. I verified that the shift fork does move by hand. Maybe I forgot to put the shift forks on the locking mechanism? Maybe the ball detent is behind my shift rail, not allowing it to disengage entirely? I did rebuild the diffs this winter so I'm assuming I did something wrong on the assembly. Any opinions are appreciated. Thanks guys
