Tcase question/

Ok, I know, I know, Everytime I go to Pepboys something is wrong.. I was looking for some gaskets and seals for my D20 Tcase. Since the Tcase isn't from my jeep I told the guy that its a 75ish tcase in a CJ.

He kept saying somethign about a 229? Is that a tcase? He found the 300 and the QuadraTrac but nothing for "Dana20"... Does anyone know anything about a 229? Maybe he just didn't know what he was looking at...

229 must be a computer code for "we don't know what the hell this guy is talking about"LOL[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
I got a "code 229" when I asked the guy behind the counter about the Rochester carb off a chevy 283 ,he went through a few dozen screens before he finally dug out know one of those four letter words "book"and found something he could type in and find it but I am not sure if it is the right one or not.

Re: Tcase question/

There was a new process 229 transfer case used on full size jeeps:

The New Process 229 is a chain-driven, aluminum-cased, full-time transfer case. It offers a 2.61:1 low-range. It was available from 1981 to the end of production as the Select-Trac, with the exception of 1986.

The NP-229 is selectable between 2-high, 4-lo, and full-time 4-high. This is possible through the use of a limited-slip viscous-coupled differential in the transfer-case. Unlike the BWQT, it does not require the expensive Quadra-Trac fluid to operate in full-time mode; it uses ATF

Re: Tcase question/

<font face="Comic Sans MS">The secret to getting parts and info at Pep Boys (at least the one we used to have here until they closed it) is finding one clerk person that seems like they'll be easy to get along with and go to them every time you go in there, maybe BS with them for a while about this or that. After a few times the one I found just asked if I wanted to find my own stuff in the computer and they'd just go get the stuff once i found it...
