How do you bypass the vacuum on the front actuator?
This sounds like a YJ jeep issue, I eliminated the vacuum actuator by installing a heavy duty choke style manual cable attached to the vacuum actuator arm, that way I can lock the front diff when I wanted. Make sure you cap off the vacuum line, otherwise your engine will run poorly.
depends on what kind of vacuum

Answer . The actuator is a vacuum driven relay that locks the front hubs when the 4 wheel drive is engaged. Failure of this part would result in the transfer case being en…gaged and sending power through the front shaft but the front tires would not have torque. This is a failure prone form of auto locking hubs. Used on late model Chevys Dodges and Some Cherokees. Alternatives would be a constantly locked hub set up, which consequently reduces fuel millage. Or, a manual lock system such as that used on Fords for decades.
The vacuum actuator is either in the fender or under the battery. The actually diff actuator is on the back/bottom of the front diff. Mine (2000 blazer) is under the battery. …It sucks to get to. If you check the actuator and it doesn't move at all, check the vacuum, if it's not getting vacuum, check the switch on the top driver's side of the transfer case. It sends vacuum to the actuator. It has three vacuum hoses coming off of it. It costs fifteen dollars at autozone and usually greatly improves the performance of the acuator.
look under the battery tray
If you have a sand filter just set it on Back wash
No, it is electric
Can you bypass the four wheel drive actuator on a older Dodge pickup so the front end is locked in at all times and just shift out the transfer case?
yeah you can! good luck!
its located directly underneath the battery on the right front of the car. You have to take out the battery and tray. It will be right there. If the rubber is torn you need a …new one. $110. Easy to fix yourself.
to awnser your question, the vacuum is supplied bythe engint to a switch located on top of the transfer case which when engaged applies vacuum to the actuator engaging the fro…nt differential, the t case switch should have three lines, a inlet outlet and a t case vent .

under the battery,those are crappy if you want more info on how to go to S10forum.com,in the 4x4 section they have a manual switch that's better.
Under your battery tray
Take out the battery and the battery tray. Its underneath the two on my jimmy.
you can remove your filter take the inlet side loose make sure you plug the hole or if you have plunger valves shut off the inlet side remove hose then when you vacuum the dir…ty water runs out the inlet hose on the ground. or you can attach some backwash hose to the inlet hose you took off and have the water flow further away from the pool. when finished replace inlet hose to pool open valve remove vacuum plate from skimmer make sure you have water running in the pool while vacuuming.replace cartridge make sure water level is up turn on pump. I personally do-not use a vacuum plate i remove my skimmer hose from inside pool and attach vacuum hose and vacuum that way. because then i dont run out of water while vacuuming. i only do this when i am vacuuming out algae. do-not do this if you have large pieces of trash because it will clog up filter hose .
Acutator is a small vacuum powered motor used to open and close diverter to direct air either to defrost, floor, or vents

I'm quite confident something could be invented/improvised to take the place of the actuator motor, but... By the time you put that much effort into it, and that much time …scrunched up underneath the dashboard, you really could much more EASILY replace the broken motor. Check with you local car salvage / junk yards and I expect you'll find a ready supply of used ones for $5. Even a new one is $30 or so. See "Related Questions" below for more on how to replace the actuator - it should give you an idea on where it is and jump-start the process of bypassing it, or fixing the broken one.
In Chevy Blazer
on the front axel
It is part of the cruise control.
In Chevy S-10
On a Dodge Ram, it runs from the intake manifold, to the switch on the transfer case, to the front axle shift actuator.
