disconnect available?

Van,

I'm not sure of the brand, but a guy I used to work with found a driveshaft disconnect that fit his 84 300D automatic. He planned to tow it behind a huge diesel pusher motorhome. He found it in some RV magazine.

Basically you cut the driveshaft and splice in this gizmo ( kind of like one of the old add on overdrive units). It can disconnect the driveshaft and it free-wheels like a manual tranny in neutral.

I left the company before he installed it, but it might be worth looking into.

Chuck
