Early 99 transfer case w/manual question
Hey guys, been a follower for many years. Had a bunch of 7.3 4X4x, but never a manual till now. Finally after many years of looking, I sold my beloved 2001 7.3, crew 4X4 F250 with AOD4 and bought an early 99 F250 with 7.3 and 6 speed 4x4.
Question I have I cannot find in another posting. A first for me after years of finding just about anything I had a question on the other trucks.
The gent I bought this truck from said this was standard because my truck has a granny or low manual gear with the 6 speed.
If I shift the 4X4 transfer case into 4X4 high it work fine and the 4X4 light comes on. However, if I shift it into 4X4 low, the "4X4 low" light doesn't come on. It just stays in 4X4 high. The seller said that is correct since it has a manual tranny. This is the first manual I've had. It has 180k miles on it. I should mention I have the dash mounted auto 4X4 switch, not the floor mounted gear shift transfer case shifter.
Is this correct? Seems to me the transfer case should shift into 4WD low since its not actually the transmission. I know it did on the auto trannys I've had.
Thanks for the help! This is the best site on the internet. Chuck in Chesapeake.
