I-6 Torque Question.

The AMC 242 engine is rated at 225 ft/lbs. torque.

If used in a 4-wheel drive mode will the torque stay the same but the pulling power increase?

Hm, this looks like a math problem...

4wd hi range.. I think not

4wd low range.. I think you are correct.

Torque is a function of the resistance the engine is working into and engine rpms. So if you shift into 4Lo, the amount of torque the engine delivers at the same speed will be significantly higher. That is why the engine can snap axle shafts in 4Lo more easily than it can in 2wd or 4Hi.
