? about YJ front axle vaccum part.....WHAT IS THE NAME OF THIS PART?

WHAT IS THE NAME OF THIS PART.....it is on the passenger side of the front axle, has three different hoses conecting to it, looks to be vaccum hoses and I believe it activates my 4wd on the front axle. One of the tips are broke off, my 4wd isnt engaging in the front axle so I think this is the cause of my problem. When it 4wd LOW it has the gear ratio that it should have but there is no spinning in the front axle. Anyways, I need to know the name of this part so that I can order a new one. Please help ASAP so I can get back in the trails! THanks!

4wd.com has a part called the "front axle disconnect switch assembly." that is the closest thing I could find to what I thought it would be called. I would think the word 'vaccum' would be in the name...I don't know if this is it or not because there's no pic:

I don't remember the atual name of the part. I just replaced mine with a Posi-Lok system. If you are interested in mine you are welcome to it for the cost of the shipping. My original system worked just fine I just wanted the piece of mind in having the Posi-Lok engagement system.

Why are you wanting to replace yours?

One of the vacuum tips are broke off due to rust so I have to replace it to get it to work again.

Looks like it would be about $10.00 2 Day USPS Priority Mail or about $7.00 USPS Parcel Post (8 Days).

No I give no warrantee or life expectancy on this part. I can only say that when I took it off about 3 weeks ago it worked perfectly fine.

If you are serious let me know and I will PM you an email address to use for PayPal or an address that you can send a Money Order to.

Thanks!

I just did some work on my right front axle and the part according to the Haines manual is the shift motor. It's a vacuum motor that operates a shift fork to slide a splined collar inside the axle housing to lock in 4WD. It's an easy thing to remove for edification, four bolts and a slight tap on the motor housing to get it off. Careful to line up the shift fork on the collar upon reassembly. You may have to replace the cork gasket as well.
