    OK, 1988 350,700R-4,NP-208. Last night I'm taking off across a intersection, driving normal, and with in 5 feet POP! Nothing but a grinding noise. No power to the wheels. After a few mins. investigating I figure out it must be my transfer case, tried locking my hubs(nothing), tried shifting between 2H-4H-4L, only got the same grinding noise.
    So I dropped the transfer case today and much to my suprise it looked perfect. But playing with it on the bench I couldn't get it to disengae from 4H. It felt fine shifting but it always stayed engaged. So I figure tommorow I'll reassemble and hope for the best. ALSO is that a one time use crush nut&washer that holds the front driveline hub onto the shaft? The Haynes manual says to "discard" the nut, washer, and seal. That is all the say.
    Thanks guys, by the way did I say that I'm selling it Tuesday!!! I really need to figure this one right now.

    Displacement, cubes, and did you say you drive a riceburner???

    Check the range fork and the plastic pads on it. I've been through about 5 of them. They're about $50, but I haven't bought one for a couple years. They wear out if the shifter is not adjusted properly. When mine goes out I can't shift it into high, I get low and sometimes nuetral.

    Well it is hard to say without being there, but sounds like the tranny blew out. That is exactly what happened to me less then a week ago.... just driving and it went. I'd say that is obviously the problem if you reassemble and it isn't fixed.
