Rex,
You can use H4 on sealed roads but not H4cl. H4cl will cause "transmission windup" on the hard stuff. Is designed for use in low traction conditions when all wheels can slip a bit, thus not putting any extra strain on the transmission.
H4 can be used all the time on hard roads but I tend to use it only in the wet as in the dry you get no real benifit and you do use a bit more fuel.

I think there were posts about this a few months back. Maybe try the archives.

Hi Rex,

I expect you will get some answers on the other forum as well.

I have had an NM and now an NP but expect the super select is the same as on your model.

In my car you can go from 2H to 4H at speeds up to 100 kph. 4H is full time 4wd and employs a viscous centre diff so you can drive in this mode on hard surfaces without a worry. I believe it gives 33% power to the front wheels and 66% to the rear.
To change to 4HLc you need to stop and place the car in Neutral before going from 4H to 4HLc. This selectoin is not recommended for hard surfaces. Can be used on "loose" gravel roads where the wheles can "slip"
Again in my model, 4LLc is used for low speed high torque driving. Maximumm recommend speed in this gear is 70 kph and only to be used where the wheels can slip ie rough rocky tracks etc. Also you have to stop and be in neutral before selecting this gear.
Hope this helps.

Rex,

I'm not qualified to give you a definitive answer but as I understand it, with the centre diff "locked" ther is no "give" aforded by the "viscous" coupling and the front and rear diffs are locked together so to spaek delivering equal power to front and rear.

Bit like the standard 4WD, once the hubs are engaged and the lever put into 4h/4l there is equal amount of drive sent to both front and rear diff.

for definate answer, try the Paj club in SA, or the Vic one. They have email and a website.. Would be an expensive mistake to make!

If you have previously had a part time 4x4 just think of 4hcl as when you have it in H4 with the hubs locked in. 4hcl is like a Landcruiser with constant four wheel drive.

The Pajeros Super Select system gives you the best of both systems.

Utemad,

4hcl (4H centre diff locked) is like a Landcruiser with part time four wheel drive, in 4wd.

Sorry that is what I meant. Obviously 4hcl can't be two things ;-)
