Remco Problems

I bought a 2008 Chevy Colorado, and had the remco disconnect put in. I was told that all I would have to do is "pull the pin" and tow, and "push the pin in" when I was ready to drive. I have had nothing but problems. The collar on the disconnect simply will not slide. I have a difficult time pulling the pin out..and getting it back in. Remco acts like I have done something wrong. This is a brand new unit. Any ideas....? Thanks

Remco disconnect

I have used the Remco disconnect for many years. It is a great product, but I always throw away the push pull cable that comes with it and install a PTO cable instead. It is much heavier and always works.

PTO cables are available at tractor supply stores and truck equipment companies. It is the same cable that is used on dump trucks to raise the bed.

I guess it helps to have somebody install the remco, that knows what they are doing. If anybody is from So. Calif. I do not recommend taking it to Overby Transmition.

One thing they may not have told you.

When you push/pull that handle... Be in NEUTRAL, move to park after it has disconnected

If it's not sliding, even in neutral, the problem is corrosion on the slide or the "clutch". lubrication (And perhaps cleaning) is the answer.

The cable can corrode, or the hardware on the drive shaft. PB-Blaster or Cyclo Break-Away may free it up, but these are not lubricants (They are penetrates, same as WD-40) Once they work.. Lube as per REMCO suggestions.
Home is where I park it!
