Re: Transfer Case....Stuck in H2

This is somewhat of a common problem and tends to be more common on the eariler trucks that have a softer output shaft.
From the factory, the shift hub and the matching shift collar have a 2 degree taper that helps lock the t/case in gear.
After thousands of miles in 2 wd, and then shifting into 4wd, the worn hubs were mated to the unused 4wd hub.
This can result in a "locked in " condition which can usually be unlocked by shifting into reverse and working the clutch untill the hubs free up.
