249 TC damaged w/o front DS
Does anyone know if it damages the VC in a 249 TC if the truck is driven without a front drive shaft. A friend removed the front DS because he thought a u joint was bad and now his VC is bad. Did it go bad because of the DS being out, or was the VC the original problem? Thanks.
I removed mine yesterday to do smokey burn outs!! I will be putting it back in asap because iits not good to drive with out it.

I was told by a Ford mechanic that the TC needs to be loaded as it was designed to. Otherwise the chain will have slack in it, without the front driveshft and it will go bad.
