[email protected]#%*$# Transfer Case
 
77 Chevy K10, 350/350TH/NP203
We got transfer case #2 installed Friday night. Locked everything in and took it for a test drive. The 4WD works great! No problems getting into gear, no funny noises, no problem. I was sooo happy[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]! So, I unlocked everything and put it back into 2WD and start driving back to the house. I got about a quarter of a mile down the road and it slipped into neutral! The stupid thing won't stay in 2wd now! I had to drive it home in 4HI[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img]. Please tell me that this is just a linkage adjustment and not something more sinister....

It sounds like it could be a bad kneuter valve in the muffler bearing lubrication system causing it to jump synchronizers when there's a lack of torque on the front driveshaft. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Actually, the NP203 is a full-time transfer case. I'm not 100% sure, but I think that the front end still has to be locked in, even when you are in 2WD (note, your problems started after you disengaged the front axle). If your front end is unlocked and you have the t-case in 2WD, I think it's pretty much the same as having the unit in neutral. Lock the hubs and you might be alright in 2WD??? Somebody else more knowledgeable about t-cases might be able to help more.

Actually, my problem started WAY before I disengaged the front axle, but that's a whole nuther story[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]...

I shoulda mentioned that the transfer case has the part-time conversion...

Sounds to me like a linkage adjustment is in order. You'd better make an offering to the transfer case gods first though, cause apparantly somewhere along the lines you PISSED THEM OFF! Good luck with it. Did your smitten mechanic friend install this one too?

Re: [email protected]#%*$# Transfer Case
 
Boy, you're not lyin' about those transfer case gods. I'm not sure what I did to deserve this - I was real nice to my truck when the original one went out. Heck, I didn't even call it names like I wanted to when the first replacement didn't work[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]. And, yes, my mechanic friend installed this one, too[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img], but I think he might be kicking himself in the butt for volunteering to help me out with this project[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img].

I hope you're right about the linkage adjustment...

I honestly believe that you can piss your truck off. I tell all my buddies not to talk s&^t about my truck or to swear at it. One of my buddies did, and I kid you not, the hood fell down on him as he was bent over the engine. Even though it has springs to keep it up. Only time it ever happened. He claims it was the wind, but I think it was my truck...........

Some of the $2/gallon Premium Unleaded we have her in Michigan might make a good offering. Just a thought - gas prices are probably more reasonable in your neck of the woods.

HECK NO! 89 octane is 1.959 a gallon here in San Deigo! 92 octane is like 2.059! Ouch! Glad I don't have to drive to far to work. I only run 89 octane anyways. Glad I never put that chip in because 92 cost to much (that was back when 92 was 1.20 something[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img])!!

tsss...tss..$2 a gallon is kids stuff[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]. I pay $1 per litre, and a gallon is 3.78 litres....and best of all, I drive some 60 miles a day [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img].

Down here 87 octane = 1.40 or something. I work for Peelers and with our trucks we get a gas card. I scrounge out of the trucks at the end of the day, hence me getting about $10 worth a day. But when I finish my 454, I am gonna be afraid to count how much gas is.
