4 wheel drive actuator

I put my tracks on today and am trying to avoid some of the problems I had last year. One problem was the 4wd actuator got water in it and quit. This may have been condensation or just seeped in from melting snow around it. Anyway I have the old actuator gutted out and am going to lock the piston in the 4wd position. Is the pin on the front axle pushed into the case to engage the front wheels? Any other ideas?

Can you seal them with silicone? I mean just by going around the outside of the joints?

The pin is pushed in by the actuator and its spring loaded to come back out.

Yes but the pin has a seal on it. to the diff. Why can't you seal around the actuator body to the diff?

If i remember right there are two o rings that seal the rod to the actuator right?

Yes there are O-rings, but he probably just got water into the actuator cover and ruined the board? Mine quit once and I took it apart and cleaned up the connections then hit it hard with dialectric grease. Made sure the gasket was in good shape and all has been good since.

Thats kinda what I was wondering. If it could be sealed where the two half's meet. And anywhere else it needs some extra help.

Yeah those actuators are really a cheesy flimsy setup. I would prefer a cable operated setup for the 4wd myself. Dialectric grease and silicone are for sure needed once you get into one.

Since I have an old actuator I will lock the piston into position to hold it into 4wd and grease the o rings where it slides into the diff. With the tracks on 4wd is a must full time so I wont need to take it out of 4wd until late april. This will save on the flimsy little motor as it will not have to run in such extreme conditions Thanks Guys
