Right now there isn't that much detail - Zukiworld might have a little more than here, so try a search over there - the guy who did it uses the same handle (Rally_T-115) both here & there - you could also try sending him a PM.

When he originally did the mod he did not take pictures, but, he crushed one of the tye-wraps and has since done it over, so hopefully he took pictures this time.

Essentially you need to get the "third member" or diff carrier out of the axle and then slide the clutch over and slip the tye-wraps in between it and the actuator itself.

Don't forget to install free-wheeling hubs if you go this route.

Default Look what I found

When I took the front diff apart, I found a previous repair. Someone had welded the actuator. The welds broke, That is why when I first bought the GV the 4wd worked. Then it stopped working. I wonder why the welds broke, how much pressure is there? How could tie wraps hold it?

They apparently WON'T (always). That's why the tie wrap guy had to go back and re-do his after a hard launch.
