wiring electric 4wd

Ok so the tranny I got for the conversion was suppose to be a manual 4wd and high/low range. Well the guy didnt really think through it and its a manual high low but electric 4wd.

Anyone know anything on wiring them? Intrex on TTORA did one. I asked him about it and he said he'd find the actual diagram he used.

Basically the way it works is there is a motor that engauges and diseng. 4wd. Polarity one way then the other for eng/diseng. Then there is a sensor that tells it where to stop, or I am under the impression of anyhow.
Anyone have any info?

It's really really close to the E Locker, Kyle. The same kind of actuator circuit is used on the rear E locker, push button 4WD and the front axle actuator in later model tacos when they went away from vacuum. You could probably get my locker control off the TTORA board Wiki and start with that.
Of course you could always yank the actuator and rig up some kind of shifter if it gets down to it.

If I had an FSM for the model you have I could help if it gets down to it. If you live anywhere around me I could pitch in if you need it.
