EXCELLENT!!! I am very grateful for this write-up! I also have a 2000 AWD with over 220K miles and bad mounts. I bought NAPA mounts, but haven't been able to muster up the motivation to put them in! I crawled under and attempted to get a look at the job. I asked myself how can you work on something ...

Front "body lift" does not affect the front subframe, drive-train, and suspension.. it only raises the body up from the subframe. Stock front shocks are unaffected since they are only mounted to the subframe and not the body. No change. 2" of rear lift is not that much... and "may not" require rear ...
This would give me the freedom to use 2low in situations like maneuvering a trailer or even pulling the trailer up a couple of steep mountain passes that are typically below 30 mph... Yes.. this could certainly be one use for this application.. where you'd want to use the low range on pavement (whe...
On further thought, releasing the front axle is a bad idea with this transfer case. This will result in clutches always wanting to slip past each other as the font end will not be turning and the rear will. I have spent time contemplating the same thing.. and came to the same conclusion. Unless "ev...

I swapped the crankshaft sensor thinking that was the problem, and it was only okay for a week or so. I checked fuel pressure and it was good and held pressure as well.. It's interesting that the crankshaft sensor "cured the problem for a week a so".. then the problem came back? Normally I would th...

I don't want aluminum - I'm after brass (or, better yet, naval bronze if available) for compatibility with the Vortec 4300's iron block and heads! Compatibility? LOL! The radiator is better off being compatible with the coolant flowing though it. This one did give me a good chuckle though. :yawinkl...

This flush idea is excellent!!! It allows the transmission to flush the fluid "naturally"... using it's own pump, to pump out the old fluid exactly as it pumps fluid when it's running normally. There is no shock or danger to the system, just freshly infused fluid! But I think I have a much easier "v...
Seems curious... that you bought it, installed it, "drove 1/2 mile down the street and back".. then never reinstalled it.LastCat wrote:...drove 1/2 mile down the street and back.
Worked great, locked and unlocked at all the right places.
Never did install this back in, thought I would one day, but never did...

Well.... it's finally MY turn!!! My "new" NP233C just arrived today! :) The unit is from an 03 Blazer.

If I understand it correctly, the other axle should rotate twice as fast with the one axle locked; so to find the ratio, I divide the free axle turns count in half , and then compare to the input revolutions, for the ratio. Have I got that correct? Yes, you have this essentially correct. This metho...
Bucking at "part throttle" while cruising, (especially when you have over 150K miles) is typically a worn distributor. It happened to me. Sorry I didn't see this post in 2014, to post my reply! Glad you found the problem!
