The '97 has three dials on the HVAC controls. The left one is fan speed, the center one temp (controls the blend door), and the right controls the setting. Going from memory (I haven't looked at...

It sounds like you have manual hubs and they are unlocked. If so, removing the front driveshaft won't get you much. Either way you are going to be in 2WD-low, it's just whether your front...

Driving home I remembered why I've never used max AC in the winter. It only puts the air out the dash vents. I never want the air coming out there in the winter. I either want it on the windshield...

I have a 460, no cardboard in front of the radiator, no special thermostat, and we've had highs in the teens this week. I start getting warmish air in a minute or two, about the time the temp gage...

That all sounds pretty normal. Whichever brake is dragging least will allow that tire to spin easier than the other, so the open differential will do what it does and spin the tire that spins...

I guess it depends on where you are. Here in Minnesota the outside air is usually bone dry while inside there are people breathing and snow melting. So the inside air is usually wetter than the...

That may be. I'm not at all familiar with diesels with catalytic converters. But this is a '95 so it doesn't have a cat. And as you said in your first post, that is going to be very different.

Even "ice cold" (to your feel) air will start to clear a windshield. If I need to clear my windshield I'll turn the fan up about 15-30 seconds after starting the truck. On the other hand if I'm...

You are correct, the front driveline doesn't turn when in 2WD. You've shown that your hubs are unlocking correctly. It still might be worth making sure the t.case isn't stuck in 4WD, but that's a...

Rich / lean mixture isn't at all the same in a diesel as a gas engine. Gassers need the mixture to be prety close to stoichiometric (perfect mix to burn all the fuel using all the oxygen). So...

Xerox is a good example. My company used to sell a lot to Xerox and other copier conpanies. You did NOT say "make a Xerox" when you were talking to 3M, Eastman Kodak or Oce!

And yes, lockers...

Jack up the front tires (or even just one assuming no front limited slip) and try to turn the front driveshaft (t.case in 2WD). If you can't turn it then the t.case is stuck in 4WD.

No personal experience, but since the TrueTrac doesn't use friction clutches I wouldn't think you'd want to use any typical limited slip additive. Being in the frigid north I like to use synthetic...

I don't know if / how the front diff is ID'd on the door tag.


Checking it experimentally is a little harder with (working) auto hubs. If your front hubs are locked you do it the same as the...

You don't want the differential to twist when you accelerate, that's just what you have to live with if you have leaf springs without traction bars. However, you do need it to be able to rotate...
