YJ transfer case problem

ok... I thought I had a problem with my shift motor, until I jacked up the front end and spun the front driveshaft by hand, turns out my front hubs do lock however I am getting a slight grinding noise from the transfer case, do I need a new transfer case, or could it just need to be adjusted?

Try adjusting the linkage first. It doesn't go into high or low range? Seems a little odd. I've only torn a 231 apart once, but they are pretty simple. Probably cheaper to buy a used case than repair a broken one though. I took mine apart just to see how it worked and then sold it for parts.

thanks for the advice, i tried adjusting the linkage with a little help from the Haynes RM and got it to go in 4wheel and seemed to work good on trails but not so good in mud, im banking my dollar its a bad pinion gear in the transfer
