Question 1998 Dodge Ram Dually 4x4 - 4x4 NOT WORKING

I have a 1998 Dodge Ram Dually 4X4 with 110,000 original miles. Last spring, I had to replace a front spindle when I replaced my breaks. The axles pulled out when I removed the spindles. After I reassembled it, the 4 wheel drive on my truck no longer worked. I removed the plate for the shifting fork to engage the axle on the right hand side and I'm certain I have the shifting fork correctly replaced, however the 4 wheel drive still will not engage. Does anyone have any ideas as to why my 4 wheel drive is not working?

When I drive around town my truck runs about 180 degrees, however when I drive (75 MPH) on the interstate it now runs about 220 degrees. It is staying in the safety zone, but it is running hotter than it has in the past. Does anyone have any ideas why it is running hotter than usual?

Thanks for your time!!
