my 4wd won't egage and i want to get rid of the whole vac line system controling the d30... i was wondering if there are any directions on making your own posi-lock instead of buying one for two hundred... it appears to be nuthing more than a brake line off a bicycle...
89 White Islander at, stock for now but hopefully running 35's by summer... Sold...
You may be able to use a brake cable from a motorcycle they are fairly stout. But cost may be high, and length may be an issue also. The cable has to go through the firewall at a convenient location, travel over the steering shaft, under the air intake box then make a gradual sweep around the front of the engine under the water pump to the front axle housing. So we are talking ~6' or so.
You could also swap in a one peice axle like a TJ. Or even make your 2 peice into a 1 peice but making the colar stay over the 2 axle peices. I have done the later using a heavy duty bolt to hold the fork/collar in place. I haven't noticed a change in MPG or had problems with my D30 locker (Aussie).
