Can the all-trac be driven without the front drive shaft without damage?

I would guess that the transfer case would try to transfer all the power to the disconnected front wheel. bad guess from the last guy.... this may be allright for awhile because the viscous coupler in the transfer case would lock and transfer the power to the rear driveshaft. however the drive would slip for a few moments before engaging and constant misuse like this will ruin the coupler. (i think they run about 800.00). so to answer your question, there will be damage. All the above need to note that if the front drive shaft is removed than the transfer case would leak its oil.

Yes, with a ton of time, money, and custom work. If you're talking about taking a non alltrac and converting it to an alltrac, i wouldn't bother. It's cheaper to just buy an Alltrac.

No automatic transmission driven vehicles can be towed any distance at all without damage to the transmission gears. You have to lift the drive wheels off the ground in order to tow it. On some vehicles you can disconnect the drive shaft (if it is not front wheel drive.) The reason that it causes damage is because when the drive wheels turn, the interior gears of the transmission turn too and since the transmission is not working, there is no lubrication being pumped inside the transmission. The lack of lubrication causes gear damage.

Any motored vehicle to be driven in the state of FL streets need to be tagged.

You can drive for awhile without the alternator or power steering working but without the water pump working you won't get far without doing serious damage to the engine. So if that serp belt drives the water pump the answer is no.

Depending on the amount of damage a car could be driven. But the car can overheat, water could get into the oil or the engine can be destroyed.

Absolutely NOT. Without the P/S pump the steering will be extremely hard to turn and it would be dangerous to drive.

With a chain drive the driven wheel will always rotate in the same direction as the drive wheel, but in a gear drive the direction of rotation will change between drive wheel and driven wheel.
