2002 f150 4x4 linkage 4.2 liter man trans
just picked up a 2002 f150 v6 4x4 manual trans.
The 4x4 shifter is really stiff and tough to get in and out of 2h, 4h, 4l.
What maintenance can I do to ease this up a little?
That is why the higher grade trucks have a transfer case with a servo motor to do the hard work. Try moving the truck back and forth a bit while trying to shift the transfer case. Slipping the clutch a little can help but sometimes it takes a strong right arm to shift manual transfer cases.
