Its like everytime your in 4 wheel drive and you push in the clutch you never know what your gonna get.
How does the transfer case shifter lever feel?
If the movement is sloppy, it could be a bad shifter sheet. A disintegrated shifter sheet is, by far, the most common transfer case failure.
Another thing to check is the condition of the splines on the ends of the driveshaft axles. If the splines are loaded with rust, the hub locks will not easily engage.
BTW, It is not necessary to pack the locking hub mechanism with grease. Too much grease can actually inhibit the operation of the locking mechanism. Only enough lubrication to thrououghly coat the moving pieces and protect them from rust is needed.
