Broken transfer case linkage

Hello all, I have been reading and can't find anything about this problem. I have been going thru my recently acquired deuce and when looking at the transfer case lever and trying to figure out why it was just free to move up and down I noticed that the linkage from t.case to lever is broke......snapped in half. That is a pretty good size linkage to snap like that. Sooo I am going to pull it this spring seeing how the truck is pretty much perfect other than that! I just haven't had the need for low yet and wanted to pick y'all's brain and get as much info as I can!
Thanks for all the priceless knowledge shared on this site as well!

Hmm....I would probably crawl underneath and put it into LOW manually, then drive it and see if there is a transfer case issue. If it does go into low and drives fine, weld up the linkage. Many reasons why it broke; pre-existing damage from a Neanderthal driving, made worse by how the linkage shakes, rattles and rolls during normal driving. Hopefully it is just that.

Thank you! As soon as it stops this beautiful Tennessee winter rain I will try it. Fingers crossed its just broke and nothing else! I will burn a
Keep-Murphy-Away candle just in case!!
