Default 1983 SJ410 Transfer Case

What is a SJ410 transfer case good for?

Can the gears be used in anything else?

12% lower range...and from what I hear the gears can be used to somehow make a rock lobster!

Its also got the e-brake on it so a rear disc conversion is easier.
It's an instant gear down.
Just adapt the bolt pattern on the prop flanges to fit.

If it is a 1983 you can not use this transfer case to make a reduced gear set.

However, it is a 12% lower box than the one that you now have in your Samurai.

It is mostly bolt-on. You will lose the 4x4 light in the dash and depending on what year your Samurai is you may have to redrill the t-case flanges to mate with your "new" transfer case.

These boxes are commonly used around here and used with 3.90 gears to compensate for 30"-31" tires. You should be able to get the box cheap.

Model year I guess.

The easiest way to be certain (short of pulling the t-case apart) is to see if the t-case has the switch for the 4x4 light on the dash.

You can't miss it - it is the only set of electrical wiring on the t-case and is situated on the shifter "tower" in front of the shifter (when looking down on the t-case from above).

If it doesn't have have the switch you can't use it to make a rocklobster style gear set. You still get the ~12% lower high and low range compared to a stock t-case though.

This only aplies for Canadian SJ-410s by the way. I dunno about the South American sourced ones. Probably similar but I don't know the exact years for the different t-cases.

Btw, if you do happen to have the correct gear set to make a rocklobster, give Paul Easley at Silver Bullet Enterprises a call to make the gear cluster.

He has the best method and pays the most attention about the run out of the gears.

The transfer case does not have the electrical connection.
From what I know, it is not from Canada.
Manufactured in June of 1983, Has VIN plate for the US stating that it meets 1984 light truck standards.
Does not have power brakes, is a hardtop, drive shafts the size of a US quarter the full length, 4 speed, 1000 cc,
single hydr. rear brake line drop, bumper end caps do not go around the side of the body,
Says SJ410 on a plastic plate on the outside behind the doors, graphics on the side that say 4x4.
What I do know is that the number of bolts to bolt the halves of the transfer case together are different.
This case has fewer bolts in it.
The front case edge is casting is not rounded like my SJ413, but is a 90 degree angle.
It has the e-break on the transfer case.

Do the 1984 transfer cases in canada look just like the one for a SJ413 (samurai) ?

If the case is different looking it is definately a 1983 case. The 1984 410, 1985 413 and 1986+ Sam have mostly identical looking cases. There are minor casting differences but on casual glance look identical.

Because the case is "squared off" like you say and does not have the switch I can pretty much guarantee that it is a 1982-1983 case. You will not be able to make a rocklobster gear set out of it.

All 410s and 413s had the e-brake on the t-case.

Is this something you are buying or already have? If you want to buy it for the reduction in high range make sure you don't pay too much for it. They are a desirable case only if you don't pay too much for it. High range is 1.58:1, low is 2.5x:1.

I wouldn't pay any more than about $75CDN for it. A 1984 case is worth about twice that but can normally be gotten for less because they need a rebuild. To rebuild both costs about the same as a regular Sam case. A freshly rebuilt case is worth more of course.

If you already own it and it isn't noisy, bolt it in and go until you can get a 4:1 case.

HTH
