Tcase - final word

ok boys and girls, i was finally able to pick up my transfer case after having it rebuilt. the parts that were replaced were he input gear, shift fork, bushing and seals...and uh, pretty much whatever gets replaced when it gets rebuilt.

anyway, the initial problem with the tcase jumping out of gears was due to the worn bushings on the shift fork. the input gear got torn up as a result of the last few death blows. so, all in all just under $700 worth of bill (there is some shadiness to the bill as i've already identified that it only took ~245 worth of parts...but was charged 475 for bench work and warranty...WTH?)

Anyway, hopefully this closes the "Posessed Tcase" chapter in my truck's rich history. Ok, adios folks. I'm off to eat, drink and be merry...and blow up fireworks.

the tcase will get installed tomorrow(although I will be out of town). i haven't driven my truck this whole xmas break and it's killin' me!!!!!!!! [img]images/graemlins/crybaby.gif[/img]

Re: Tcase - final word

Did you call around on rebuilt transfer cases? I know I can get a NP208 for $375 rebuilt and my Dad can get a rebuilt NP241HD for $410.

It's about $300 to rebuild a transfer case after you buy all new bushings, shift fork rubbers, a shift fork, and a chain. It gets expensive if you have to replace gears or if the pump in the 241 gets smoked and ruins the planetaries.

I did a lot of research on rebuilding transfer cases and ended up buying a used one because I was too cheap. I couldn't handle the downtime to rebuild the one in my truck anyway just like you probably couldn't.

Re: Tcase - final word

i wasn't able to call around. dad and uncle wes handled everything (i am out of state). they did call around, but cc doesn't have much of a selection anyway when it comes to great shops.

what we all wanted to do was buy a used one from a yard or somewhere but we couldn't find one there. ehh, it just kinda crapped out all at the wrong time, but, at least now its finished.

Re: Tcase - final word

yup, i did the same thing with the shift forks and popping out of gear. the one shift fork has rebuildable bushings, the other you have to replace the whole fork. it sucks, but thetas the way oit is. glad to hear you've got it about solved

Re: Tcase - final word.........i lied!

well, i guess i spoke too soon [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] dad got the tcase back in the truck and took it for a spin....guess what it started doing 5 miles into the test drive??? [img]images/graemlins/thud.gif[/img] so, he's having it towed in to the shop on monday and they're going to go through the stupid thing again. this is getting ri-gawd-dam-diculous. at this point, i'm thinking of lengthing my rear dshaft and 2wdriving it until it explodes.
