Shift Motor Install Question

Looks like I will be changing the shift motor on my son's 94 XLT. It is stuck in 4-low right now. How do I match the position of the shaft on the transfer case to the new motor so everything is in sync? Since the lights on the push-button switches are not lit, I do not know what mode they are in as they have been pushed many times since the fault occured.
Thanks for the help - Bill

That thread should answer any question you might ever have on that shift motor.

you will be able to turn the t-case position with a pair of pliars.......turn it to the 2wd position that is marked on the t-case (the positions are marked)......99.9% of all shift motors are in the 2wd position when new...
