Not sure. I'll have to look at it again. I'm anxious to to get it fixed. I hate to find out the hard way. Usually when something fails completely, your looking at a more complicated and expensive fix.Originally posted by sixchows
Do you have two u joints in a cv joint on the front drive shaftat the transfer case end? My old K5 blazer used to do the same and no one could find the noise. Drove it until the shaft fell off and that's how I found out what it was.
Yea the older cars seem to wind up after driving the new ones. No over-drive and locking torque converters. As I recall 45-50 mph was top end in passing gear on it. The thing would nearly climb a wall when you put it in low range at an idle. Dad bought it originally then I ended up with it. Hated to get rid of it, it was only 9 years old at the time (79 model) with 80K miles but it just kept nickel and dimeing us with mechanical problems as well as being eaten alive by rust. The floor under the backseat, and wheel wells had rotted away and the tailgate had been replaced. Man what a heavy tailgate.Originally posted by MowHoward2210
Geared pretty low though. You get on the highway and wonder where the OD is.
:fineprintyou can get a conversion kit to make part time four wheel drive do a way with the chain ,with gears!I guess that's the price you pay for full-time (really a limited slip) 4 wheel drive system.
I sure like the old Jeep, though. Great for pulling, off roading, fishing and hunting type stuff. It has low restriction Thrustmasters on it, and has good power. Geared pretty low though. You get on the highway and wonder where the OD is.
