If you made a quality product, and you were able to make them without a lot of overhead, thus leading to a cheap consumer price. You probably couldn't make them fast enough for the demand that you would have.

1. I'd be glad to "field test" one..
2. Of course the product would be supplied at no cost! [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
3. Yep, most go for about $200,
4. The lowest I've heard of is $160 from Corey Morgan, [email protected]
5. You can get 'em off ebay once in a while, as well.
6. Have you seen:


Advance Adaptors:


Go 2 Guy Engineering, [email protected]
Ken Blume
10581 Ervin McGarrah Rd.
Lowell, AR 72745
Phone: (501) 636-4669



7. Then there is dumping the indexing ring and re-drilling the transfer case.
8. Give Ramo an Email...

Make em like the Blitz rings. His have 5 positions for clocking which is good cause it allows TJ and YJ folks to use them on D300 flip kits. We go clockwise rotation whereas CJ owners go counterclockwise. His I think are $160.

How about someone coming up with a template to redrill our current transfer cases? Something that can be printed out from a computer, then taped onto the Dana 300 to drill the holes in the right spot. Saves drive train length and reduces the number bolts holding the thing together.

Re: clocking ring specs?? dana 300 or others

I drilled my t-case (as Leve noted) and getting the proper spacing is actually not very hard. It ended up being much easier than I would have guessed.

Here are the basic steps I used and it worked great:

1-put t-case in desired position (in the jeep) and mark where one of of holes will need to be to line up with the tranny output hole.
2-remove t-case from jeep and put it on a bench to mark holes.
3-screw a bolt into the nearest t-case hole to the index marking you made in step 1.
4-make a template that uses the bolt as a 'stop' and drill a tiny hole where you marked the correct indexing (you will need to make sure the hole is the same distance from center as the regular tcase holes). I made the template out of 1/8" steel and shaped the inside edge to it would ride on the t-case input shaft consistantly.
5-drill through the template's tiny hole and start your hole in the tcase enough to mark it.
6-put the bolt in the next hole, push the template up to it, drill through to mark.
7-repeat for the remaining holes.

This way the holes end up being spaced exactly as the stock holes. The only real trick is to make sure the center of your new holes is the same distance away from the input shaft as the stock holes. I wish I would have taken a picture.

Re: clocking ring specs?? dana 300 or others

Ok I've been doing a little measuring and am curious about one issue the rear seal on the transmission if a clocking ring like the go2guys for example is used it moves the transfer case back far enough that the seal no longer contacts the t/c input shaft. what is done about this gasket and plug drain hole? or is something needed to make the seal cantact the shaft again?
