Re: Transfer case problems: UPDATE!!!
Well we decided it couldn't be all that bad and took the tcase apart. Those BW cases are very simple. What we
found inside was a mess. The tcase has an oiler inside that rides on the main shaft and has a stop to hold it still.
That piece had broken off and wraped around the chain sprocket. After a few calls we found out that the 1356 tcase
had a history of that about every 100000 miles. Well we have to have the case built up where the stop is attached to
the case front. Magnesium and aluminum alloy, I will have to get it repaired. Schaffer welding will rebuild it for $40.00
and I can get all the parts to do a complete rebuild for $208.50 from UTE in Phoenix. We should have this truck back on
the road the middle of next week. Not bad for not knowing anything about the tcase. But I told my son,,, heck!! some
body built it,,, we should at least be able to tear it apart,,,, he he he,,, getting it back together and it working is the
PLUS to this. Let you know how it turns out.
