TJ SYE

Am doing a SYE on a '00TJ w/dana 44. There is a balancer pressed onto the TC output shaft. There is at least 6-8" between the end of the output shaft the face of the balancer. What type of puller should be used with so much distance to cover? (there are three #8 or #10 machine screw holes in the balancer)

Re: TJ SYE

I just finished putting in my SYE yesterday. I also have a 00 TJ with the dana 44. There was no balancer on my output shaft. And the instructions that I followed never mentioned a balancer either. What kit do you have? I bought mine from Quadratrac and it was Skyjacker brand. I cant think of any reason the shaft would need a balancer. Somthing just dont seem right about that. Are you sure that your not talking about the oil pump? Thats the only thing that I can think of that fits that description. Does it have 4 tabs around the outside of it? If so that is the oil pump. I wouldnt use a puller on it, it is fragile. The oil pump on mine came right off when I seperated the case. Another word of caution...be sure to get the pickup tube and filter in place when putting the case back together.

Re: TJ SYE

Hey, I think I know what you are talking about. It is a vibration dampener. If you look close you should see the letters HT stamped on the part, on the face of the ring. The part you are referring to is called a Rattle Damper, should be part #309071 or #303071, or something like that, I can't recall off the top of my head. The HT stands for Hillsdale Tool, the company I work for. We make that part for New Venture Gear. Dampers are our specialty, we've been making the 350/305 chevy crankshaft damper for over thirty years. Any way I have not seen the disassembly tool, only the assembly tool. I sure would think you could make a disassembly tool. I know that the part is a press fit over the shaft, the hub i.d. is a very tight tolerence. My final word of advice is, what ever you do if you plan to reuse the damper, don't pull or push on the ring, it comes off fairly easy, somewhere in the neighborhood of 130 pounds of force will seperate the the ring from the rubber. Most dampers come apart much harder, but this damper is a very low frequency (soft rubber). If you have any questions feel free to e-mail me.

Re: TJ SYE

That is weird. Im sure my output shaft didnt have anything like that on it. I wonder why there was differences? I wonder if all Tj's have this damper or if it started on the 2000s

Re: TJ SYE

We did not go into production of the damper until 99. The damper is on some tj's and XJ's. I don't believe it is on all of them, just certain drive train configurations. The tapped puller holes are metric, m6x1. The damper was created because of warranty issues on output shafts, they were bending and in some cases even breaking, according to New Venture / New Process Gear engineers. The correct part # is 34701. Here is a picture of the Rattle damper (the big one), and another damper installed on a cherokee drive flange that you may see in production in the future.
