Might also want to manually put the car into FWD mode by removing that fuse under the hood.

If you pull the shaft out of the transmission and continue to drive, it will leak especially going up a hill. Is the bad joint broken or just making noise. If it's just making noise you can probably pull both axles from the rear diff and lock the center diff. It will still make noise but have almost no load on the bad joint. Also if it's a bad joint between the carrier bearing and rear diff, you might be able to remove that portion of the drive line. If you go looking for a replacement, any EA82 driveline will work.

My older brother also has a good friend (or should i say best friend) that works in a auto shop in Afton. Also my little brother was just given an 84 wagon that i am sure he would let you use if you dropped it off with me in oregon, if you needed it. Give me a call, as there are lots of things that i could do to help get you rolling again.
Edit: on more thing, if anyone on the board has a drive shaft that could be sent out, it could be sent to my mom's address (also in Afton WY) and picked up there. Let me know if i can help out, cause it is not a problem for me.

Donor car?? Any EA82 series car will a manual tranny (I think the auto driveline will work, but I'm not 100% sure).

I have a driveline and would glady ship it out Monday morning. Tell me what you can pay for it and where to ship it and it's your.
Your GL-10 has Full Time 4WD with Dual Range? That's rare, generally just available in the RX. Sounds like a nice car.

Anyway, I guess I struck a nerve when I responded to Corky's comment, sorry, maybe tomorrow will be a better day for you:)

so since I had no rear diff, I just unbolted teh axle shafts, adn removed the drive shaft. I disassembled the front U joint and stuffed teh front yoke into the tranny, and secured it with some mechanic's wire.. Although stupid me is not thinking, and he can't do that since in locked mode the drive shaft is turning....
I *think* that the EA82 drive shafts come apart in the middle (Dunno, never looked at mine), if that's the case, take the rear section out and you're good to go. It'll make noise, but it won't be as bad as if it had a load on it.

Maybe It could be sent to the address Donny was talking about?

We are going to head to Pocatello instead and get Lump16's (Dale's) driveshaft he's measured it and it fits.
Thank you for your offer. We will post to the board at a later time and let everyone know if we're on the road again.
