    Somebody makes a manual actuator for engaging the front axle on 88 and newer GM 4x4s. The mickey mouse heated goo bulb in my 88 has gone west, so no 4x4 right now. The later replacement, electric (fast operating) actuator is only listed for 92 and up, so I'm stuck with the goo bulb and the slow engagement. I can't remember who makes the manual conversion but it would be some nice to be able to use low range 2wd on occasion as well as have instant 4x4 when you pull the case in.

    Alan; the dash mounted manual cable controlled units are called Posi-Loc 4x4 . We have used them for a few years now with excellent results. E-mail me and I'll get you more info . John
