Re: LT230 stiff to select high/low range
I had one seize up in a similar fashion. The hi/lo lever works on a rod
in a housing on top of the xfer box. Said rod has the gear selector on
it. In my case the rod was seized in it's housing; it is only splash
lubricated. The housing is held on (from memory) by 6 bolts, and I seem
to remember it is visible and accessible with the gearbox/transmission
cover removed. You might need to remove the floor panels to get it off,
I can't remember if the floors are above or under the gearbox cover.
Remove bolts, remove housing and free the rod.
To prevent it happening again, use low range more often and/or tilt the
vehicle to more extreme angles to slop the oil around a bit!
