Intermittant issues with moving red lever from low to high. High to low etc. issue resolves if i move forwards or backwards for a bit. Any ideas please.
Regards,
David.

Morning (well it is here) Leader.
Can you explain intermittent issues.

As in sometimes it sticks and sometimes it doesn't? The hi-lo lever in my Stage Ones is different but I very dimly recall sometime towards the beginning of the 27 years ago I bought a 2.25 having same/similar issue, and having to lubricate from under the vehicle a linkage on the lever. As with any issue concerning gear changes, I'm assuming you've checked gear oil levels - in transfer box particularly in this case? If none of this helps, may be something more serious and perhaps persons more experienced than me on here can help.

Thanks gents - apologies for not replying sooner, bad storms here and no internet as a result.

After parking, say in low range, i cannot select high - the lever will not push into position. If i reverse a short distance , then i can select high. Transfer case oil changed 6 months ago. Will look into the linkages.

Regards,
David.

Morning David.
It's a good idea if 4 wheel drive is not used often to engage high and low ratios once a month on a grassy or soft surface. I do it and have no problem with the rods sticking. You may have to remove the plate near the front prop to get at the rods to free them.

Thanks Alan.
Always start off in low as I am garaged on a paddock - around 500 yards to road and then i change to high for the road (albeit dirt).
I'll go down the lubrication path as a first off and see how we go.
Thanks for replying.
Regards,
David.

Reading Alan's reply, I can't recall now for sure if my problem was with the 'red' or 'yellow' stick. Sorry, Stage Ones with permanent 4-wheel drive and centre diff obviously very different and I don't have those colourful controls any more.
