I'm going to tow a short Ford E 150 auto trans van to craft shows (lot of volume, not much load) & wondering about drive shaft disconnects. Any recommendations?

 

Thanks

Wayne,

 

Welcome, I had a Remco Drive Shaft Disconnect installed in my 2008 Silverado by Drive Shaft King in Dallas, Texas. It works very well. One nice thing with my truck is that there is no steering wheel lock, so here is what I do. Set the Parking Brake, start the engine, shift the transmission into Neutral, pull the disconnect to disengage the drive shaft. I kill the engine and when I am sure the trans mission has stopped turning I move the selecter to Park, remove the key, release the Park Brake and lock the door.

 

One thing that David does is install a different Cable to the disconnect that Remco supplies. He uses a heavier PTO cable.
