Default Bronce Transfer Case?

I'm shopping for a Bronco, I'm hoping for a 78 or 79, but I'm more likely gonna end up with an 80-96 due to price and availability. I change oil for a job, and I've noticed that some of the bronco's I work under a have Borg-Warner tranfer case. I just read the Jan 4x4 Garage and they had an article about transfercases. They bassicaly said borg warner is junk. So what I wanna know is when I'm shopping for a Bronco, If I look under and see a BW are they that bad that I should not buy it solely because of it. Also, is there anything else I should look for while shopping for a bronco.

I don't think that they are that bad, and depending on the year i think it is 91 and up you most likely get a BW and 90 down a NP I am almost sure this info is right, if it is not some of the more knowledgable guys can help...just trying help. [img]images/graemlins/RockOn.gif[/img]

Everyone that I know, including myself, has had good expirience with the BW 1356. And Nate, my 87' has one, so it could even possibly be before my truck, but i think the early 80's had the NP.

I think what some people don't like about the BW1356 is the magniseum case (spelled wrong I know but oh well) other than that I hear nothing but good things, my 80 has a NP208

all the 80- on up T cases are all chain drive, and basically the same....
strength and gear ratio is near identical,
np208 or a 1356 is what you will find.

I have a 1356 in my 1 ton. I haven't blown it up yet [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
I think it's better than the NP208
I also think the bad hype is because of the electric shift. The motors are the problem, not the t-case itself.

I believe the chain is larger and stronger in a 1356 vs the 208

What the article said bad about them was that there isnt a lot of aftermarket parts avilable, and the ATF pump tends to fail. But its good to hear from people that actually have and use the BW as opposed to a magazines oppinion. Thank you.
