Help me understand how to fix my 4wd

I posted here about a year ago, and still have not found a solution to fix my 95 rio grande jeep. I dont want to put a couple hundred into the jeep, it isnt worth it. Currently my 4wd does not work. We took it to a shop and they replaced the vaccum motor ( circular piece with a diaphragm in it, a nipple on each end- i believe ) and this did not fix my problem. They( the shop ) think the 4 cyl engine is not pulling enough vaccume to operate the system, or something is rusted. I'd like to just stick the thing in 4wd and be done with it. How can i do this? I've read through some threads but my knowledge is pretty limited when it comes to vehicles. I know i can replace shafts or bla bla bla. I'm just looking for functionality on the cheap. Help? Thanks

ALso jp magazine did a story on several ways to solve the issue... posi lock, new alxe shaft... just depends on your budget.

You can take the c clip off of the shifter pin, push the fork over and reinstall the c clip. Working great on my dana 30.
