Folks,
can you assist me locate an article on dis-engaging the automatic activation of the centre diff lock when low range is activated in a 100 series?

I recall the article suggesting that dis-engaging the centre diff lock in low range allows the 100 series to use low range to more accurately to move a BT at low speed on a high traction surface.

cheers

From memory when i did mine,

Climb underneath and looking forward look at the transfer case, there are two plugs going in, the one at approximately 2 o'clock is the one you remove, wrap it in electrical tape to stop the contacts from getting full of gunk [you may want to put it back one day] perhaps zip tie it so it doesn't flop around, and jobs done.

Just remember to push the centre diff lock button when you want to activate 4wd

Open to the File Swap tab and you'll find Ern's article under 'Vehicle Info', 15 NOV 07- the first article in the list.
Good luck

PS how's your T-Van?

To Mick and Vicki, and BobH,
thanks - this is just the info I was looking for.

Re the Tvan - great - it can go places the BT cannot and its 1.2 tonnes do not put a significant load on the Tojo however it certainly lacks the luxury and convenience of a BT on a long trip. We will retain the Tvan when the BT is delivered. This will mean that we will have a T-Van and a BT-Van!

cheers

I didn't have any wheeled thingo prior to my BT. My late Gail and I travelled staying at Bed and Breakfasts. So would I be: B&B BT ?

It's called humour Searenity and should be more off it ..... in my opinion :-))

by the way is Searenity a play on words or a spelling mistake ?

Mick and Vickie,
not incorrect spelling but a play on words - it includes our surname.
