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.

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!

Can you remove the driveshaft to your front axle for better mileage without harming anything?

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.
