Ok, heres the deal:

1987 GW, 360, 727, w/lo-range:
transfer case vacuum switch stuck in 4WD,
blew out the u-joint (cardin joint?) where front driveshaft mates to trans. case. Had one wrench with me, was able to disconnect driveshaft from trans case, but did not have wrench to disconnect from front axle. Tied off shaft so it would not grenade the tranny/trans case, but would still spin, drove about 10 miles (at about 10 m.p.h.!!) to friends shop, disconnected driveshaft at front axle, then drove another 20 or so miles - trans case locked in 4wd, could not release the vacuum switch/motor to 2wd, till tranny?? (I think) gave up the ghost. So what did I destroy here (besides the front driveshaft)...

Transmission alone?, but trans case & lo-range & axle still ok??

Tranny and transfer case?

Tranny, trans case, front axle, or combination thereof??

I have spares of everything, but want to narrow down what is broken.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Peter

Oh yea, tranny fluid smells burnt.

Viscous coupler blew out if you were driving in 4Hi (driving in 4lo would have saved it). The silicone fluid in the transfer-case probably wiped out the bearings and bushings as well.

Best bet is to get a good working NP229.

Burnt fluid in the tranny may or may not be related.

Front axle should be fine.

Bob,

Thanks for the quick reply. I knew that there was a certain way to run it in 4wd without the front driveshaft connected... but of course on the side of Route 684, lying under the Jeep, disconnecting the front shaft, in rush hour traffic, late to pick up my son from daycare, wife at doctors, ... for some reason could not remember which was the right way!!

Go figure.

Did you ever pick up those alum. rims you were asking about on the board a fwe weeks ago??

Peter

No, I never did. Only way I would is if I picked up that J-10 in Enfield, on which they would look nice. But as it is, that truck would be a long-shot for me; I'm waiting to see if someone else pounces on it, so I don't even have to consider it.
