    I haven't split a tranfer case apart, but done a few manual trannies. One problem I had was with my second rebuild was a dent ball fell out during reassembly and fifth gear shift fork moved rather easily with out locking in. Talk about mad! Of course you don't realize this stuff until you put it all back together and test drive it. So if a trasfer case is the same, a good leason learned. Watch out for the little ( dent ) balls.

    Check the linkage adjustment,if it's not set up right,it won't go all the way into gear which can cause it to pop out.

    If it's not that,then there is an internal problem with the case,which will need to be opened up and inspected.
