I also use one shift position into 4wd hi which uses std gear ratios of fwd to take off from lights or intersections in the wet tarmac situations then sometimes need to bang lever back down once moving.

If you feel diff bind again, steering stiffens up, harder to select gears may be experienced, try drive half on tar half off tar declutch to shift back to fwd

Thank you for the tips! 

No problems so far. Previous owner offered me a full engine with transmission, (timing chain broken), rear driver and passenger windows, and some other extra goodies, for $80 USD total. So I am going to pick that up tomorrow morning.

Also I found another wagon in a Junkyard with a intact interior, electrical windows and that sort of stuff, maybe its some deluxe version, so I am pretty exited.
No mechanical stuff left unfortunately.

Sounds good on both deals.  With these old models, it makes sense to gather parts, since many are no longer available, and not many left in scrap yards.
