...the 4-wheel drive gear shift is a little uncertain in its positions between 4-wheel low and neutral and 4-wheel high, and I always do a double check after 100 yards of setting off to see that all is well back there in the toad.
I did do this on the day this happened but my cell phone rang with a critical business call just as I was checking the parking brake was off etc in the Suzuki.
So I simply didnt do a thorough enough check of the 4-wheel drive gear shift position, and it happened that it was not securely in neutral, but was in the 4-wheel low position.
So more or less human error I'm afraid!
I am still figuring out what to do next, whether to sell the Suzuki for parts and get another toad completely or to spend 2 grand and get it going again...
