Need transfer case shifting instructions for 4x4
Its a '90 Suburban with a 700R4 and a NP241.
I know generally how to shift the transfer case, but was wondering where to find the GM instructions...ie: max speeds for shifting into low and high, and what gear for 4Low - forward or neutral?
ThanksSemper Fi :fighting0037:

The rule changes from high to low range. Some transfer case with an automatic transmission will grind into low range unless you shut off the engine.
Along these same lines there are many procedures for operating a vehicle that are found only in the owner's manual. I found this out years ago when I worked at a Chevy dealership.Jim

On my 87 Blazer w700R4, 4HI can be shifted in and out while moving. With my blazer, I have to be stopped and in Nuetral to shift into 4LO. I have tried in Park and it won't work.Darcy

If you have manual hubs you need to lock them in on the outside.
I have electric all the way around, into 4 hi it can be up to 55 MPH but in 4 low I have to be in neutral and under 3 MPH if not stopped all together.
If you have the manual lever try shifting into 4 i at a full stop first then see if it will work at a slow speed.
Good luck.Trevor - Huntington Beach, CA
