Re: 88 S-10 blazer
I tried the vise grips thing before, I got the light on, but it didn't engage the front... (before I had my Cooper STT's, I had some street type tires on my S15, and tried to engage the front diffy like that with the vise grips, I learned the front wasn't engaged the hard way (buried the back axle about totally, had to be pulled off... This was on the entrance ramp to the sand dunes I was tryin' to drive on, it was deep sand and someone in front of me kept me from getting enough speed to make it in 2wd... I bet with my new tires that stuck wouldn't have happened, but I learned that engaging the front diffy isn't a job for vise grips... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img])
If I were you I'd try making sure the cable is still hooked to the vacuum actuator, and apply some engine vacuum, vacuum from a hand vacuum pump, or some other style of vacuum and try to use it that way...
