Re: My NP-205 died!!!????
guys, I'll tell you EXACTLY what its doing and then tell me if you still think its just the linkage...
In 2H I start going and I hear a grinding clanking sound in the T-case then above 30 mph or so it turns into a high pitch screech with no more grinding.
In 4L it DOES change into the crawling ratios and the rears turn just fine, but the fronts don't. Still the grinding and screetching as I go faster.
When I put the 2nd shifter into neutral, there is no grinding/noise at all, it just quietly coasts.
I know I have at least one bolt loose on the back part of the front driveshaft.
The 4L worked perfectly and I didn't even really get into anything hairy that could break a 4L.
The susp.on the truck is f-ed and way too harsh for offroading so the truck ride was EXTREMELY bumpy, enough to definitely shake things apart.
Still think its could be the linkage?? If it just isn't engaging correctly then why the same exact grinding in 4L AND 2H?
Why would I get low gear on the backs still?
much thanks for the info
