Question about 1979 Ford F 350
I have 79 ford f-250, and the four wheel drive doesn't seem to work. It has been mostly sitting for a couple of years, but driven a couple times a year. The hubs seem to be engaging.
I take it the transfer case shifter feels okay (shifts through all four gear positions), so try jack up one side of front end, rotate wheel while looking in knuckle to see if drive axle turns, if it does, then hubs engaged. Now if someone holds the front d shaft, and wheel won't turn, then both hubs are engaged. Next put t case in 4xhi or 4xlow, if you cant turn the wheel, then the t case is engaged, and all is normal. If wheel still turns at this point, then the t case is not engaged for some reason, but post again if it does. Hope this helps.
