Removing Transmission

Will it be possible to remove the transfer case without removing the transmission on a cj=7?? Or do you have to remove the transmission and tcase as a unit??? If the last is true what will be the esiest way of doing so.
tks

Re: Removing Transmission

Yes you can remove the T/C without removing the transmission. Just remove the stick shift, unbolt the t/c from the transmission (place a jack stand or some support under the transmission), remove the driveshafts, cross member, etc. and carefully remove it. Of course it sounds easier than it actually is [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img].

Re: Removing Transmission

It actually isn't any harder than just described. ONe thing to make it easier and just a tad lighter is drain it before you remove it. One other thing, when you go to put it back in the vehicle, make sure you replace the oil seal in the back of the trans that seals around the t-case input shaft, otherwise you will do the drill over again...it is guaranteed to leak.

Re: Removing Transmission

Do you have to remove the crossmember or can you just remove the tcase. (I think this way you wont have to worry about having to hold the tranny with a jack or I am wishing to much?)

Re: Removing Transmission

Virtually impossible to get to the bolts without removing the crossmember.

Re: Removing Transmission

I just did this last night. I removed the t-case with the adapter from the tranny. You HAVE to remove the skidplate, as Brad said. Then the tranny comes out easier. I have a CJ drivetrain all over the garage, on the way to a 727!
