does anybody know how the front diff on a 94 chevy suburban 6.5 turbo diesel engages ie. electric, vacumm, or mechanical. right now the 4x4 wont engage on my burb and the light wont come on even for low range
Thermal electric actuator....its a Piece of junk and prone to failure. I think the dealer gets something like $150 for it. I believe its available now at parts stores like Auto zone, Advance, Napa. There are cable conversion available as well.
I have a 93 burb and a shop quoted me $300+ for the parts and conversion kit to the GM retrofit. I got the OE pn from the chevy dealer and called NAPA. They had the original electro/thermal actuator and with my AAA discount it was $79. Swapped it out in 20 minutes. I figure if the original lasted 200k miles, I could afford to change it every couple of years myself. 4wd working fine.
ohya i made progress just went out and bought the posi-lok cable operated mechanism to engage the front diff. Canada www.4x4posi-lok.ca or USA www.4x4posi-lok.com i havent installed it yet but it should make a huge difference
