I don't know about the years Quadratrack was from 1976 to 1979 in CJ7's i'm not sure about wagoneer's i have a bunch of these units and i have rebuilt them as well. the vacuum lines are esential. there should be a vacuum control knob in the glove box. those lines go to a vacuum type accuator on the top of the transfer case, it might be a good idea to use new vacuum line here. a feed line comes off the intake manifold to supply vacuum to this system. all those lines need to work correctly for that switch. as for the handle on the floor board thats the high low switch on the reduction unit on the transfer case. this gives you 4 low . if it's not hooked up you only have 4 hi. some of these units came only with 4-hi. if you need more info you can drop me an e-mail i would be glad to help.

    If it is a turbo 400 it is not a chevy or pontiac, olds or buick. it would be a turbo 400 with an AMC bolt patern. these are pretty hard to find. Quadratraks came with turbo 400's good luck !

That model is probably a quadratrak, I am guessing at the spelling there.
I am a Jeep enthusiast and have destroyed several of those. Vacuum lines are essential on those models and the best way to get your configuration is to get a Chilton manual at your local parts store. you will find its the best $10 bucks ever spent . The linkage however depends on how much of it is there? Those models used a Chevy transmission (TH400) and some had a Dodge transmission, and their parts are mostly usable on your Jeep.

I need to find out how to tow a jeep grand cherokee limited with full time 4 wheel drive all 4 wheels down behind a motor home. I hope you can help me. Thank you

You can tow in with the transfer case in neutral as long as all 4 wheels are on the ground like with a tow bar.If you use a tow dolly you will have to remove the rear drive shaft.This transfer case has a viscous coupling that will over heat if all the wheel dont turn at the same rate.

I have 1990 Jeep grand Wagoneer and i was wondering is their a switch are a plug that you can disconnect the 4-wheel drive in any kind of way

Power for both front and rear come through the transfer case. Even when the front is not engaged, part of the unit still needs to turn to put power to the rear wheels. Therefore, you can't just shut it off. It is possible to remove the transfer case, replace the tailshaft of the transmission and find or have a driveshaft made to convert it to two wheel drive but it likely would be more complicated and expensive than repairing whatever is broken now.

Loose steering wheel, 1989 Jeep Grand Wagoneer (FSJ)

it sounds like all you need to do is as follows, remove the steering wheel and behind it inside the column you will find a couple of screws or bolts that hold the tilt steering assembly together, they have most likely come loose and just need to be retightened , I would recomend that when you have the bolts out that before you reinstall them you put on some kind of thread locker (ie) lock tite. this should solve the problem
