    A friend at work has a 79 K10 with the typical setup...350/t350/np203. Shortly after he got it(maybe a year ago) he removed the full time hubs and installed a part time kit from Warn.

    Now in the last few weeks or so he's noticed that anytime he locks his hubs he gets a clicking noise coming from the transfer case. He has no idea what it is and I'm not so sure myself.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks

    Probably the u-joints in the front driveshaft at the t-case end.

    the sound you are hearing is the chain jumping on the sprockets in the transfer case going to the front drive shaft.The chain is worn out. I had already got a price for one around $400. It is not worth the money to replace the chain.I would suggest on putting in a known good unit in there or swapping it out for a np 205 case. this 205 case has gears in it instead of a chain.
