Transfer Case Rebuild

I am trying to decide witch is easier in the long run. Getting a rebuild kit for my transfer case or trying to find a good used one. If I rebuild mine...then I know exactly what I have in the future. If I get a used one then I may be buying someone elses headache. Can any one give me advise on this and some experience rebuilding one? It is the NP231 case. Thanks for the help!

Re: Transfer Case Rebuild

i would rebuild it, at least then you know what you have. Doesnt take much to rebuild a 231 either, and heck what a accomplishment......good luck

Re: Transfer Case Rebuild

why do you need to rebuild? is the chain streched, does it whine, does it leak, is there a hole in the side of it?

Re: Transfer Case Rebuild

It's the strangest thing...The 4wd light wont go off....I get wheel hop around corners...but with transfer case in 4wd the front tires aren't pulling....the only thing i can figure is transfer case. Maybe someone has had this problem. I have vacuum at front axle actuator...but when I shift transfer case vacuum wont change sides. Actually I will start a new post to figure this out.

Re: Transfer Case Rebuild

I may be a little new at the jeep game, but I've had some vacuum problems also. Mine turned out being just the opposite of yours. Mine would stay in 4WD all the time but not lock the front axle. I was told it may be the actuator switch on the TCase. That would make it act like the Tcase was bad. It turned out to be that the inner workings of the valve on the axle were gummed up. I manually applied vacuum and removed it several times and the parts loosened up finally. Had no problems since then. I just make sure and check it about every other week if I don't drive it for a while. If he is still around, [email protected] had some good stuff on the vacuum system.
