this pic is tryin to show how the fork pulls the lock clutch into the diff carrige, it would be out of the lock position here, if the lever moved to the pics left it would lock the 2 pieces together to make 4 wheel drive possible
this pic shows the assembley without the case , the outer lever is the range selector and the inner lever is the lock lever, when the lock lever is moved it will pull on the shift fork to cause the 2 to become one and transfer power output to both frnt and back drive
here is a pic of the shifter the pionter is pointing at the hi -lo lever ,this is part of what was wrong with my t case , the inner workings of the shifter moves about an inch before it ever moves the shift lever on the case, the hi -lo worked better than the lock but i could not get it into lock at all
this is the lock lever of the shifter, mine is very wornout ,when i got the truck the previous owner had removed the link to the lock lever and drilled a hole in the shifter mount and put a threaded rod in place to hold it in loc(dumbass moron) i guess he was too cheap(or not smart enuf) to fix it
