Re: how much can a t-case be \"clocked\"?

I don't see an issue, as long as you have the same "virtual" fill level. Clocking it usually means a change in effective fill level. Higher and you will probably blow seals and/or spit out the vent. Lower and you burn it up. Hmmm, the vent. You may need to plug and move the vent depending on what the clocking indcates.

what i would is essentialy just "pivot" the front out flange down so the instead of it looking like this / it would look like this | .i am thinking it would work, just want to make sure.

Re: how much can a t-case be \"clocked\"?

greg - you looking to replace a 720 style case with a zuki case? (trying for lower lows?) I've run both setups int eh Niva, and 'yes' the case can be clocked. As mentioned, fill, dran, and vent plugs become an issue - I just made sure the case was sealed, and did a complete drain/fill w/ a measured amoutn of fluid.

only thing to watch would be that high range drops with the low range gearsets. going to some of the 6:1 cases, for example, will put high range down close to the stock 720's low range ( 1.81:1 high on the Sumo 6:1 I believe, while the 720 case is 1:1 high, and 2.12:1 low) in my case, it meant I couldnt use any of the Zuk cases with my diesel conversion.

Re: how much can a t-case be \"clocked\"?

i have figured out my MPH using the different gear sets and such and i should be OK with the 4.16 sets. i can run 4000 rpms at 67 mph, and i only really need to go 55 mph, so i should be fine with that. since it is in my nissan, i already have the stock "married" case and i want to swap out the second divorced case i put in there. that's the plan anyways.

Greg - sent you a message direct, but I seem to be having intermittent problems with my ISP - if it doesnt show up, you can always shot messages to me via the private message function of the BBS.
