hi all haven't been on for ages but need help. coming home the other night and heard and felt a god awful BANG, and a grating noise, got out and checked underneath the old girl and could spin the front prop shaft with no reistence at all.

limped home in low range (low 5) and thought it must be the front diff, removed front prop shaft but now have no drive at all, seems the transfer case is putting power out the front shaft but not the rear.

it has low range but no high range. any help would be much appreciated

I had similar symptoms when out of Adelaide River and it turned out to be a busted cv joint.

couple of things....is it a constant 4wd? If so, you have probably worn out the drive flange on one side...or less probably busted teeth off the front diff or less common, a front c/v...(which should have gave you steering issues too) In constant this will cause the front shaft to spin as you say, u need to lock centre diff in to get drive to rear. putting it in low does this automatically...you dont have ABS do u...your piccies are of an early 90-92, the reason i ask is some had abs and no centre diff switch for high range...this would explain why you needed low range. My guess is a drive flange and c/v spline have finally let go...this would mean you have been experiancing alot of backlash...common on early cruisers, later ones had wider spline areas to alieviate this...take the dust caps off and put it in gear....you will soon see the shaft turning if this is the case...

thanks jack and dozer, well it seems to be putting power out the front of the transfer but not the rear in high range but both in low. i spoke to a mechanic who has advised me that it is the transfer case. thanks again and have a safe and happy long w/end if you have one !
