ok what is the differance in a 231 and a 242 tcase they seam to be the same to me??? also what is a 241 tcase found in the s10??????
Don't be a teacher!Think of it like a dif. An open dif transfers power to either the left or right tire but not both. A locking dif transfers the power to both.
A part time t-cast transfers power to either the front or rear and when it's locked it transfers power to both. This allows you to drive it on dry pavement & gives better traction than 2 wheel drive but not as good as full 4 wheel drive.
(for you techy guys, there are holes in my example but I am trying to explain it simply so he gets the concept)
Yeah yeah yeah.:sonicjay: I figured he was looking for a little more detail than your explanation but you made it simple.:thumb:Don't be a teacher!
Fulltime 4wd can be used on pavement all the time with no major damage. It works just like an AWD car.
Part time 4wd can only be used in slippery situations. Otherwise damage will be done to your drivetrain.
