Angry My 4 wheel drive .21 Savage only powers 2 front wheels

hi all

as you can see im new to the forum. I own a .21 savage. I recently pulled it out of storage and decided to start riding it again.

I have a small (i hope) problem with it.

It is a 4 wheel drive but it only powers the 2 front wheels. When I pick it up and and give it some gas the back wheels do not turn at all. I took a look underneath while it was running and the drive shaft (dogbone) which powers the back wheels is not turning at all.

What could I start looking at? Any help is appreciated.

Sounds like the tranny went? Never had a Savage bhut that is the only logical place it could be---or if it has a set screw for the dogbone to tighten to the output shaft on the tranny I would start there.

yes, i would go over each and every screw on the drivetrain first and make sure everything is cinched down tight. then i would take a look at the diffs, even though they are most likely not the problem. then take off the tranny and tear it apart.
