All the diff lock does is transfer power to both rear wheels evenly rather than let the AWD "seek" the wheel with best traction. The problem "may" be with the vacuum line but could be several other things. Not a "no-go" item unless you drive very difficult, steep, rocky, muddy roads a lot. Bob Stevens '87 Syncro Westy

I am looking at a 86 GL Syncro on Ebay, the gold one. Seller states that it has rear differectial lock that does not engage. How much of a bother is this. I have had two regular Vanagons, and no experience with Syncros. Any observations would be welcomed.
