I managed to induce some confusion in my last post by typing 2L instead of 4L. sorry 'bout that.

OK, specific question:
with the shift motor removed, if you rotate the shaft to 4L and leave it there, leave the shift motor off, does the
transfer case go into 4L? drive it a few feet to align the gears.
if yes, does it come back out if you rotate the shaft back?
Yes, nothing mechanically wrong, I have now replaced all the components with no effect other than I have a lot less money to put towards building a mechanical way of shifting, which is now my goal and my question as , I see zero options, just the 900$ job that I would rather put towards a new truck

that means the clutch safety is good. it shouldn't start without pushing the clutch.

so the problem is it just won't go into 4lo? other than that, the truck drives fine?
Correct, shifts to 4h not low, I don’t need 4high, everything else works

Well, I have given up hope of fixing the electric shifter, looking for mechanical options, the only thing i see is a 900$ rig. Any ideas?

I have the shift motor off, and it won’t go, I can shift it by hand, which is what i will be doing in the future until i find a new rig, i can’t believe the amount of electrical crap that goes into rotating this stupid shaft!! Just to sell parts? Greed does usually explain everything, fucking bullshitt!!
