there is a vacuum switch on top of the transfer case it applies vacuum when the truck is shifted in to 4 wheel drive . if you connect it to direct vacuum you front axle will be engaged all the time

Normal thing that happens as long as onone (worked) on it, is the vacume hose going to the engage sevevo under the battery box has fell of on either end or is brocken on the way there. Then the once or now leaky battery acid ate up this same servo. then the cable going to the front axel breaks sticks falls off or even someone needing one climbed under your truck while parked somewhere to get one to replace their brokeen one now you don't have one then theaxel engage arm or gearset is damaged

To be very honest, a manual to help guide you thru this process should be obtained due to special tools that will be required for this repair procedure. This is a fairly large job, and I do recommend a manual. We do not have full manuals on this site due to copyright laws.
