97 OBS 4x4 4eod no forward or reverse

Need some help, I have a 1997 f250 4x4 automatic powerstroke. Son left school to take his biddy home and when he went to leave the truck has no forward or reverse. It's making almost a scratching sound every now and then. Ive already checked to make sure the linkage is correct and that the torque converter and flywheel are still mated together. Please help

Put it in drive and then park. Does it make a ratcheting sound? Will the truck hold or roll when in park?

The answers to these questions will tell me if the problem is in the transmission or the transfer case.
