Ox Locker Not Fully Engaging

I installed an Ox up front some time ago and, unfortunately, have never really had a chance to run it. The Heep has been sitting for a while (~9 months :face palm: ). I finally got it going again so now I'm going thru all the systems.

I had it up on stands and, thanks to the STaK T-Case, put it in front wheel only drive to test out the locker, brakes, etc. Come to find out, it looks like the locker is not fully engaging.

I put it in gear and see both front tires start to move, but after only a few turns, the drivers front tire begins to slow and I can hear a ticking sound from the diff. The ticking speeds up as the drivers front tire slows to a stop.

Going to fully research this tomorrow, but figured I'd give a shout here first to see if anybody has run across this.

The cable probably needs adjusted
