Hi:
I believe you should get vacuum to one at a time based on the shifter selection. Try this test. Disconnect one line and plug it with a screw or colf tee. Se if the 4wd works. If not, try the other hose to see if that helps. If it does, there is a vacuum solenoid that is on the top of the transfer case that may be the problem.

Let me know what happens.

Ok this is what I did, the two vacuum lines that come up to the engine compartment I put them on the same vacuum line so now they both suck in air, when I hook up both vacuum lines to the shift motor and put it in 4wd it doesent do anything but if I take one of the vacuum lines off the shift motor. It will lock in 4wd but if I try to take it out of 4wd and one of the vacuum line is still in the same hole it wont unlock the axle. I took the shift motor out and hook it back up to the vacuum lines so I can see what it was doing it did the same thing. Nothing happen untill I unhook one of the lines then it moved
