    A shop www.4xheaven.com, was telling me that the 208 Trans case pump doesn't run in 2HI, so he said to run it in 4hi before an interstate trip. Sounds like sense, avoids wear on the shift fork, a common prob? They had just been changed on my '86 6.2 Banks. Now I know why!

    To my knowledge GM 208s do not have a pump but a slinger. The 241 has a pump. Either way it does not matter as the pump/slinger is on the output shaft of the T-Case for the rear driveline so it is always turning regardless of 2 or 4 wd. If you have manual hubs put the lever in 4hi and leave it wont hurt anything but maybe fuel mileage by 1 or 2.
