NP435 tranny,..\"Tough, but not unbreakable\"

Well, we all know that nothing we build is unbreakable, but some parts, I just dont expect to see on my garage floor. But alas here it is, my NP 435. It busted into 3 pieces, as sonn as I removed it from the rig.
But Ya still gotta love a tranny that can be broken in half yesterday, and still drive you 4 or 5 miles off of the trail, can be removed rebuilt and replaced in a day, and only cost $100. I need to borrow a bigger bearring puller, for the input shaft bearring, but I should have it back on the trail by noon tommorrow.

MAN!!! How did you do that?

They that can give up essential
liberty to obtain a little temporary
safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Re: NP435 tranny,..\"Tough, but not unbreakable\"

Leve,
I do have a garage now, the company rented me an apartment in Yuppieville. The problem is, My Jeep wont fit in it, they wont allow me to build shelves or work benches per the lease, and I share it with a BMW owned by the nice gay couple next to me. So its basicly the same conditions, as I always have to work, except I dont get a tan.
A shot of the broken parts Ive accumulated in the last couple of months.

Hahaha, I try to keep my parts on my side of the garage, but they(the gay couple) are waiting to move into another unit. I dont think they like me. I think one of them thinks I have a nice butt,though, I heard him say "What an [censored]" the other day

Re: NP435 tranny,..\"Tough, but not unbreakable\"

For my T case, Im running that Atlas sitting on the ground next to the trannys.
I broke it, when I slid off a ledge and whacked the front axle very, very hard. I have been experimenting with so many different spring packs lately, that I dont resize the drive shafts each time, so the impact immediately used up the 2 1/2" or so of compression travel, at the slip spline. It then transfered the shock of the impact to the front out put shaft of the Atlas, which in turn snapped the back of the tranny off. It ran fine though for the hard 5 mile drive out, even with no gear oil.

Jeff, sneak a little oil trail from under the BMW's transmision to the drivers side door, and lay a couple of broken parts into it... then point the "problem" out to the owners. It could be fun [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: NP435 tranny,..\"Tough, but not unbreakable\"

wow! i never thought i'd see a 435 broken in half like that. that really does say something about the atlas. i would have thought it would have gone first because of it's aluminum case. ahh just another rearson i want one.

See, if you'd have gone with the SM465 like you should have, you could have a broken Atlas II sitting on the floor costing a LOT more money.

It's good to have a "fuseable link" somewhere in the jeep.
