How the $%&# do I get the $%^$ T-case flange off

How the heck do I get that thing off? I took the front driveshaft off and yanked and pulled and the dang thing just started to turn the other 2 drive shafts. I need some help.

Well, they SUK! I repair/build almost everything for my Zook BUT I've given up on getting those off. Take it to a automotive garage or maybe a machine shop. It'll take them about 5 minutes to get it off. Do mess it up yourself.

There is a flat spot that locks the nut into place , it has to be opened up first . Then , you almost have to use an impact and a bar to hold the flange .

When I put 4.16s into my case, I went to Home Depot and got one long pipe to fit over the end of my socket wrench and one long stick of angle iron. After I opened up the bolt tab with a punch tool, I drilled 2 holes into the angle iron and bolted that to the flange, stuck the pipe onto the end of my wrench, grabbed the end of each and it turned the bolt off with almost no effort.

Re: How the $%&# do I get the $%^$ T-case flange off

If what I think you're talking about is the nut holding the companion flange on the differential, then I have made a tool for this purpose. I'll see if I can find the drawing. I had to make it to pull the flange to replace the input seal.

Essentially it consists of a round plate of a diameter similar to that of the companion flange. It has a large hole in the middle to clear a socket that fits the nut in the middle of the companion flange. It also has the same bolt circle for the flange bolts. To this ring I welded a long arm.

I bolted the tool to the companion flange and butted the arm against the ground (I was working with the Sam on jack stands). Then I used a breaker bar with a long cheater bar of pipe to remove the nut. I think sarge is right that there is a flat spot that you must deal with but I don't remember the details. I did take ALOT of force to turn the nut.

PM me if you want more details.

Good luck.

I see the flat spot inside the nut is there something in there I need to push out of the way then, checked in the chiltons manual and they don't have anything on removing the flange. Maybe I'll just take the two cases to a shop and have them switched....

Re: How the $%&# do I get the $%^$ T-case flange off

I tried the Home Depot thing, and played balancing act for a few hours and the t-case won....

so I went to my friend and used his impact gun and vroom vroom vroom all three came off...
he had flanges swapped in about 3 minutes...

I was ticked that i wasted hours playing with it,,, if you don't have an impact gun, go to someone who does, you will only bother them for a few minutes and you will be done..

good luck...
