    Usually easier to get into 4wd in neutral, even while rolling real slow

    The A518 can get expensive to build compared to the 727

    @Joseph James if you're not failure with older 4wd trucks the front hubs had to be manually locked. I'm not failure with this truck specifically, but most likely it still has mechanically locking hubs up front.

    Only if they've been altered from the factory, of course many of them have.

    A long time ago, I had a K5 that had manual hubs.

    Most likely it's a Dana 44 on the front so it will have the auto locking hub with a vacuum operated locking system. The manual locking hubs were usually only found on the truck with a Dana 60 front axle.

    Oh, well, in that case, if we do the actual math, is a 440 really a 440?? How about a 318? I know the Chevy 396 was really a 402....

    The 396 was a 396 originally. Then it got a slight bore to 402 in 1970.

    Buy it, if you decide you don't like it call me I'll by it from you with some profit for your trouble. I'm looking for a place to put a diesel that is not a rot box, and not a road wanderer 94 up truck. Don't care about slushbox as it will not be in there long if my name is on the title.
