LT 230 stuck in Locked Diff inturnally

So I finished swapping a transmission that worked out well and now I have discovered that my LT230 is stuck in Diff Lock. It is not the linkage, though that has its own issues. I have used socket wrench to rotate the selector and it doesn't disengage. I do have a second LT230 that has a stripped out input gear that I think I am going to open up the diff selector area and see if something is obviously wrong in there. Just wanted to see if anyone has had this issue and could give me any advice?

Have you driven it with the selector in the disengaged position. The selector only allows it to disengage, it does not actually disengage it. Sometimes you need to work the centre diff a little to get it to come out. This can be from turning the car from left to right, or my favourite is to give the brakes a jab.

I will play with it a little more before I crack it open and see if I can get it to disengage
