I replaced the TLA in the differential but I still seem to have no engagment
in the fron t axle the transfer case is shifting as far as I can tell. The
front drive shaft does lock up.THe bulbs are good the fuse is good the TLA
is new what else can I check for? I don't have enough jack stands to put the
whole truck up in the air to see if it is working properly but when I try
and turn with it in 4wd I don't get the common feeling of the tire jumping
in a tight turn it is like they are still spinning free as though they are
not locked up. The TLA extends out when 4wd is engaged when it is not
installed in to the differential, NOt real sure what to check next??? Could
something have slipped out of place in the differential?? any suggestions
there should have been a spacer, it fits into the actuator opening before
you put the new actuator in
about an inch in diameter (just fits in the opening) about an inch thick
should have been in the box with the new actuator
if he used the '98 up actuator, the spacer doesn't come with the
actuator.. it's in the retrofit harness box.. at least mine was. if
he's using the old design.. it shouldn't need one should it?
put the front up on jack stands, xfer cas in neutral or 2wd. remove
the actuator, take a dowel (1/2-3/4") about a foot long and push in on
the CAD plunger INSIDE the diff... it should push in with little
effort and engage the axles.. may take some slight turning of the
wheels to get the splines to line up. if it doesn't... you've got
internal axle troubles and a new actuator won't help you.
