It does NOT have a center differential. (That makes it a Power Take-Off. Technically, the same exact thing as the transfer-case of a Part-Time 4WD.)
Both wheels are NOT under power at all times
despite the difference in tire rotations.
The front wheel IS in free-wheel until it is initiated to permit drive, and in some cases it may not continue to permit drive in less than 1/3rd of a tire rotation.
