4wd Problem


Hi Guys,
I was hoping that someone could help me over this matter. I have just acquired a 1987 Fourtrak(Rocky),2000ltr carb, 5 speed manual model. The problem I am having is that I have no owners manual or any other form of operating instructions, and I have no idea how to put it into 4wd, the little lever on the floor puts it into low ratio, but I have no idea what the button on the dash, that says 4H on it is for, it appears to do nothing when pressed. Also the light on the rev. counter dial that says 4wd, does not illuminate at any time. This is the first Daihatsu I have had anything to do with and I am totally lost, as I have always had Land Rovers before.
I thankyou in advance and appologise if you have heard this question before.

Have a look at the last comme

Have a look at the last comment on this page: http://www.daihatsu-drivers.co.uk/node/4796#comment-8515
Bear in mind. The dash light may not work. The vacum that opperates the 4wd selection may not work. Both of these posibilities seem to stem mainly from lack of use by 'Chelsy Tractor' drivers.

Any veiws expresed in this thread by me are purely from my own experience, and (sometimes) falible memory. Hope my comments help, but please don't take them as gospel.

Many thanks, I have read the article but I do not know how to lock the front hubs.

To lock the front hubs remove hub caps and turn to lock.Hopefully they wont be stiff like mine.It does say in my manual only to engage 4WD when hubs are locked.Hope this helps.
