  • Super select dilemma.

    Under what conditions would the super select gearbox attempt to engage 4 wheel drive?

    My NJ has on two separate occasions tried to engage 4 wheel drive without me moving the gear selector. On both occasions I was towing a ski boat up a long steep road after having used 4L to pull the boat up the boat ramp.

    I was definitely in 2H before exiting the boat ramp area.

    The climb is about 12 km long rising about 950m and I?m in 2nd gear all the way.

    I do the climb regularly without the boat and have had no re-occurrence of the problem.

    There is no visual damage of the vacuum actuator and the vehicle goes into and out of 4 wheel drive without incident. The problem may have something to do with using 4L it pull the boat up the ramp or the extra weight during the climb. I just don?t know.

    What can I check?

    i can only think of maybe there is excess play in the selector shaft at gearbox side or a faulty actuator. the vacume actuators [ 2 of ] under bonnet normally let you know via the flashing instrument lights [4WD] if there faulty as they will keep on flashing plus you wont get into 4WD so it must be down at the box end.

      You have run out of manifold vaccuum from being at wide open throttle up the incline, and / or you have a vaccuum leak. The front diff disengage is held open (in the 2WD position) by manifold vacuum. Look for leaky pipes, or the actuator could have a pinhole in the diaphram.

        That pretty much what think the problem is because as soon as I get onto the flat everything appears to be working fine.

        As for the throttle position, I sit between 2500 and 3000 rpm.
