If the front drive shaft on a 76 K5 Blazer turns when 4x4 is not in use does this mean it is an AWD transfer case?

It is probably AWD the previous poster doesn't know what their talking about. I have a 76 blazer with an AWD transfer case this. This year there were 3 different transfer cases that came with these blazers. the NP203(AWD) ,NP205(4WD/part time), &NP208(4WD/part time). You can easily identify These by the Plates located on them. they will have the model# there. For more info on these cases follow this link. http://chevy.off-road.com/chevy/article/articleDetail.jsp?id=200867

if your in H gear and hubs are off position it dont turn 76 cant have awd. manual hubs right so that should be the proublem unless your in 4H and think its in H i did this when i first got mine on a long freeway drive it just turns the front axle if the hubs are off. if your in H with hubs locked it turns front axle dont hurt but may slow you down,i do this going to the snow and stitch from 4h to h while driving,i unlock hubs when i get home lazyness!

It is located on the transfer case. It'll be on the drivers side of the transfer cas, right next to the front drive shaft, in about the middle of the vehicle! Good luck , it is a hard to get out!

It is bolted on to the rear of the transmission. The front driveshaft will lead you right to it. Also Follow the rear drive shaft toward the front it will also lead you to it

when the car engine is start and the driver shift a gear,the power front the engine transfer to the drive shaft and its transfer the torque or power to the axle shaft the move a wheel.

User Avatar

there probrably aren't any bolts it is most likely a universal that you need to remove to release the shaft from the transfer case

User Avatar

you dont, if you want to disconnect it then remove your front drive shaft.

User Avatar

your looken at oround 4 thousand to do so, your better off trading your blazer off and getting a 4 wheel drive. ALL u would have 2 do is buy a Transmission or extension housing A intermediate housing A Transfer Case A shifter assembly A complete Front Axle & front drive shaft A New or have another rear drive shaft made.a Vaccume switch & assembly if a NEW axle is used.New springs & mounts 4 the Front axle.OR buy one already 4 wheel drive.:->

The Prop shaft (front drive shaft) has a ball type cv joint that sits in bearings that connects to the transfer case. This is most likely shot and you need a front prop shaft (front drive shaft) complete with rubber boot and differential cv universal joint.

The front axle shaft will be cv style, so zero there.The front drive shaft would have three.The rear drive shaft would have two if it is a one piece shaft, three if a two piece shaft.The front axle shaft will be cv style, so zero there.The front drive shaft would have three.The rear drive shaft would have two if it is a one piece shaft, three if a two piece shaft.

tAKE THE FRONT DRIVE SHAFT LOOSE AND SEE IF IT STILL DOES IT IF IT DOES ITS THE FRONT CARRIER ASSEMBLY IF IT DONT ITS THE TRANSFERCASE

User Avatar

To permanently disable, remove the drive shaft from the transfer case to the front differential.

User Avatar

yes it will, but not because it is being driven by the transfer case, but because the front axle is turning it

User Avatar

Perhaps something in your front differential is not right and it is spinning your front drive shaft, instead of vice versa.

User Avatar

There is only one, it is in the middle of the double cardan joint on the transfer case side. It is very hard to find with out removing the drive shaft.

User Avatar

I assume you are talking about a four wheel drive vehicle. If you have a transfer case that lets you select between 2 and 4 wheel drive you can remove the front shaft with no problem. Many later model vehicles do not let you chose 2 or 4 drive-- they have a limited slip unit in the transfer case. If you take out the front shaft in one of these, the rear shaft will not work.

there is no drive shaft it's front wheel drive

User Avatar

the wheels ar always linked to the axle and the drive shaft the drive shaft is disconnected in the transfer case

a jack shaft is the small drive shaft from transfer case to front differential, brakes have nuthing to do with removal of a jack shaft maybe you mean removal of front axle

User Avatar

Look underneath for a drive shaft that goes from the transfer case to the front axle. If it has one, it is four wheel drive.

Transfer power from the transmission to the drive axleTransfer power from the transmission to the drive axle

yes. you need to take out the front end and bolt it on. then take out te transfer case and front drive shaft.

User Avatar

The shaft inside the trans will have to be changed it is longer in a 2 wheel drive and the taIL SHAFT.

User Avatar

It depends if it is a 4 wheel drive truck. A rear driveshaft is used to drive the rear axle. A front driveshaft is used to drive the front axle on a 4X4.
