    I have a 1988 chevy 1500 4wd. I just rebuilt every thing in the truck except the motor and transmission. I gave it to my daughter and two weeks later the truck is back and missing the rear drive shaft and half the transfer case. So I bought a 94 chevy 1/2 ton 4x4 and was going to use the 241 c out of it. Sounded like a great idea but the old one has a 2 wire four wheel drive switch and its short. the new one is a 3wire switch and about a inch long so is there a switch I can buy to make this work or am I going to be tearing this all down and trying to build one out of two units? or can I redo the wiring to make the three wire switch work? any and all help is needed thanks for the space.

    The later units use a 3 pin to send a signal to the PCM to indicate that the transfer case is in 4-LO. You just need to wire that 3 pin plug into your harness and skip the 3rd pin. Switching to a 2 pin involves replacing the sector inside the case.

    ok im all for a easy fix can you tell me what two wires I use and what wire I don't use in this? I will order the three pin plug tonight if this will work as I sure wasn't looking forward to changing out that selector inside that the push ball rides on.
