Easy to install, and I believe that Quadratec has them. This is a manuel over ride.

I am not sure about operating the pump manually. Just know that they have the manual cable system.

Sorry, I didn't reply to your PM sooner. I left you some information this afternoon about the Posi-Lok.

Hey, just checked the 4 sale section. and you should contact this guy. He's selling the unit you want for less than half the price.

The vaccuum pump is your engine. All of the vaccuum is supplied from the nipples on you intake manifold and throttle body. Any leak can wreak havok on the 4x4 and other things. This a common problem. The posilok should be a solution that you won't have to worry about any more. The cheapest place I have seen it was at collins brothers, but that was a while ago. http://www.collinsbrosjeep.com/main.htm
