    The collar should be trapped by the fork when the cover is installed. The prongs should fit right inside the grove of the collar. I believe the collar will be all the way to the pass side when re installing the CAD cover. Big thing, is the fork should be in the grove of the collar.

    Are you sure its the CAD popping?

    If so, I guess you need to take a good look at the axle splines, and the CAD collar.

    Do you have to do anything to the vacume port on top on the TC
    after you get rid of the vacume?

    yes liberty. that is exactly what is entailed in a CAD flip. like what wycowboy referred to when he stated that is how is going to permantly lock his CAD. then you just replace the flanges with hubs and disconnect the vac lines.

    then to get the light to work you replace the switch in the Tcase from the vac one to an electric solenoid one and wire it up!


    You then later said .............. I ordered a switch from a 81-84 Np 208 and put that in. It was easy. All I did was run the positive lead from the CAD switch back the T case and used a ring terminal and bolted it onto the new switch. It self grounds when you engage the T case so you can cut the other black wire off at the end of it. ................

    I would like to have my light working, can you or someone elaborate on this so that I get the correct parts, if a known parts source is avail for whats needed than that would be a big help as well.
    My name is Jason Anderson, I am an avid collector of early Dodge Brother/ Graham Brother car/ Truck literature. Have anything to trade or sell?

    I have 77, 80 and an 1986 factory service manual and am getting better at using them :)

    I am owned by a  1986 big block 440 N.P 435 4 speed 4 wheel drive short W.B truck and some of his pals

    Thanks for showing an interest in my truck :)

    Hi,

    I have an 1981 W150 with manual locking hubs but the wiring harness & dash from a 1988.

    To get my 4 x 4 light working, would the existing 1981 switch work?

    If not, do I need the switch with the two blade terminals or the single terminal ?

    Thx

    I want to remove all the vacuum lines after I installed a posi-lock cable, do I plug one or all ports on the vacuum switch on top of t/c?

    I would just remove the vacuum line at the source (vacuum tree on the intake), cap it, then remove all of the lines and the vacuum ball back to the t-case. Just leave the switch alone.

    I would make sure the lines on the switch are capped. You do not want moisture/salt/dirt, ect getting inside, and freezing or corroding the switch in one position, and making it impossible to shift the transfer case.

    the vacuum system switch on tranfercase  had nothing to do with transfer case shifting (has a lever in cab ) it has to activate CAD vacuum system  , and switch to light indicator is part of conversion on axle housing .
    Just cap off vacuum ports

    George makes a good point. If the detent ball freezes up, it will make it hard to shift the lever.

    Hi, I am the new guy and this is my first post ever on any forum site so please be kind. I just bought a cherry (for a 27 year old vehicle) '87 Ramcharger with a 360 and the Dana 44 CAD front axle. I don't like this axle and I thought it would be easy to replace the inner and outer split axle with a solid axle and later install some manual locking hubs to allow the front end to free spin. I am convinced that the sliding collar is going to be the weakest link in this less-than-desirable axle arrangement. If it were to break I would have to get a tow back home.
    Here is my question....should I modify this CAD axle housing into a full-time 4wd axle or would it be easier and better in the long run to replace the entire axle housing with a non-CAD axle housing?

    I welcome your advice and opinions.

    What do you do with your truck? What size tires?

    I have a CAD axle and 33's and have wheeled it pretty hard in Moab etc for 15 years. Never a problem. Are you sure it's worth doing?

    Agreed.
    35" tires on my CAD 2001 offroad and 33" on my spicer hub 81 and they have held up through dragging tax free 2000lb game across real rough country.
    You wi be fine it's the bearings and hoses that need to be in good order.

    Hello, On my 89 RC the Cad started acting up also, I was fortunate to locate a 85 non cad dana 44 and swaped out the housing complete and installed manual hubs. now just need to figure out the 4WD indicater light.

    I just did the mechanical mod to my truck from posi-loc. It works very well. You eliminate the vacuum setup and put a mechanical cable to select between connected and disconnected. I would recommend it, but definitely buy the true kit, not the China knock off. The pictures are represented correctly as to the oem parts.  Good job!
