    I would think so; my guess is that only one wheel would have power, but that's better than nothing.

    I'm thinking it would work like an open differential in the rear where the tire that slips would get all the power aka you're stuck with 2wd

    Stock up on plenty of ballast because you're only going to have rear wheel drive.

    Try getting a used one from a local bone yard to get you through until Monday if you can. Then keep the used one in your tool box for emegency use in the future once you replace it with a new one.
