Stuck in 4X4

I went riding in the mud last weekend and I could not get it out of 4X4, the switch did nothing. After I cleaned it up I check the cable, vacuum actuator and movement of the cable. All seemed normal except it would not swith out of 4X4. It looked like the arm that switches the differential into 4X4 was slight bent. I straighten it out and it does move but does not go in and out of 4X4 or 2X4. It remains in whatever you pry the lever into. I thought I read somewhere about this problem but can not find it doing a search. Anybody else have this problem and know the fix?

I know just by flipping the switch in my car that it won't go into 4x4 or 2 wheel drive. I usually have to pull forward to get it to engage if it doesn't or I put it in reverse and roll backwards.

I'd say that if you bent the outside arm, you have bent or jammed something inside too like the fork or slider.

It is a real simple system, it is just a coupler that slides on the shaft back into the yoke in the end of the pinion shaft.

Mine did this after I installed the clutch, but I had put the vaccum line in the wrong place. Hope that helps.

Mine is also like this. I think it maybe becasue my vent line is too long from when i snorkeled. You may want to figure it out pretty quick. I am having to pull my front diff and rebuild it. Not sure this is the reason why, but it is the only thing I can think of.

Mine switches into 4wd just fine it's back into 2wd where I have problems. The actuator pulls cable into 4wd but it's just a spring to disengage so many times I have to get out and push the lever forward into 2wd by hand.

Is a stiffer spring possible?

I'm sure you could find one but then I might be worried about the actuator pulling it into 4wd, I rather be stuck in 4 rather than 2. I already always have my winch cable ran up to the rollbar so I don't have to reach into the mud.

Where is this vacum line and where is it supposed to hook up too? I just did the clutch kit on mine and now I dont have 4x4.

Thanks
