Transfercase knowledge, codes...?

A t-case I am getting next week says 742 Painted on it (looks factory) and the numbers 0 11890. It has a yoke where something bolts to it, not U joint straps. Any knowledge would be appreciated. It is also pretty big, possibly a 205?

Re: Transfercase knowledge, codes...?

Does no one know? Should I look for different codes on the case?

Scratch around and see if you can find a circular tag on it. Should say New Process Gear and a few more numbers. that'll help us help you.

Re: Transfercase knowledge, codes...?

I think the shifter is on the right side, I am pretty sure its just a shaft. Another think,I think its iron. Its not as heavy as a divorced ford 205, and I heard 205s are big no matter what make, so I might rule that out...

205s arent that big, theyre just heavy, 203's are monsters, it take two good guys to move one.

Re: Transfercase knowledge, codes...?

Its a 203, I saw a buddy today had two 203s laying around, I looked and they were the same shifters, same yokes, same shape, is it true that the chain is about 1.5" wide in those things? In other words, they are plenty strong, right?

Re: Transfercase knowledge, codes...?

I have been told that 203's are very strong..provided that they are kept well lubed (with the right lube..10w40). If it has a part time conversion kit installed, you need to either lock the hubs or shift into 4wd about once a week for a few miles, so that the chain will turn, and splash oil into the rear housing. Hope this helps. Yes, the chain is ATLEAST 1.5 inches wide, I didnt measure the width when I installed my conversion, but I can certaily understand now, why a new cost's $$$.

Re: Transfercase knowledge, codes...?

Cool, that makes me happy. If I were to break a chain a buddy has two extras for $60 each. It doesn't have a part time kit, there is 4l, n, 4h.
