ok, someone said that if i use a chevy straight axle for my axle swap i would have to get a new T-case, well i was talkin to my friend the other day and he said that he thinks they make kits to flip ur T-case round, would this work?
Two paths diverge in the woods, and i choose the one less taken, the path of mud only a 4x4 could tackle.
I've heard of flipping a Dana 300 - easy to do because it uses splash oiling. All you need to do is re-work the shifters and move the breather.
Planetary-geared transfer cases won't work flipped over. They use an internal oil pump that draws fluid from where it collects at the bottom of the case. Flipping it over will starve the pump and seize the case.
Use either a Ford front axle, or a 90-91 Blazer/Jimmy/Burb t-case with the GM front axle.
no you can not flip youre t-case it will not oil properly and burn up very soon get a 208 out of 83 up solid axle chevy with the same trans as you truck. i did this to mine, you will have to notch youre cross member to clear front output
Ok guys....I will clue you in on the vital info you need[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img] Go around to the wreckers and look for a NP241 out of a K5 from 1987 to 1991. These have the output on the same side as the solid axles have there pumkins on and will bolt right up to your trany because a NP241 is already on it, its just that the output is on the wrong side!!!
