I thought it might be something like that. Thanks for confirming that I
can ignore it.
Ironically, my (78) Chebby K20 was "all wheel drive" from the factory
(tranfer case options: Hi - Hi lock - N - Lo - Lo lock) but some idiot
put locking (unlocking) hubs on the front, and probably mucked with the
transfer case so it's now a hybridge clusterflock.
