Default 98 prairie 400 4x4 shift problems

i picked up 2 prairie's today in trade for an old polaris i had. the one i'm working on first is the a 98 400 4x4 and it won't shift into forward and will go in reverse only and some time's neutral if i'm lucky. i unhooked the linkage from the shifter for hi/low and the forward/neutral/reverse. the hi/lo lever on the the motor moves good and i can tell that it's switching in and out on that. but the shaft for f/n/r seems like its in a bind and hard to move by hand and no matter where it clicks in place its usually only going in reverse and sometimes neutral if i'm lucky. the lights show that its going into gear but it isn't. i've been lucky so far with not having to split cases but looks like i'm going to have to with this one. any tips on what's causing it?
