I went to the store about 10 minutes away last night in 4wd and when I got
there there I got out of the truck (1988 chevy 305 4X4) and I smelled this
burning wire insullation smell. I lifted the hood and couldn't smell it
much. It was mostly outside the driver side door, and a little in the cab.
I drove it home about 30 mins. later. I used 4wd as little as possible on
the way home and smelled it only a little when I got home.
Was this possibly the actuator? I read the thread about 4wd not engaging
and although I didn't blow a fuse, I'm thinking this could be it. Any
This is my first 4wd and I have questions about how to drive, when to
shift, running on pavement. I'll post that q separtely.
