T-Case gear question..........

I am going to be putting 4:16 geared t-case in my Zuk.....I was going to buy a prebuilt t-case,but got to thinking I might want to just buy the gears and put them in my case myself.Figure I can save $200-$300 if I do it myself....

Now for the question.I am wondering how hard it is to install the 4:16 gears in my case.Are there any special tools I will need? I have always been one to do any work on my vehicle myself,but I didnt want to bite off more than I can chew.Is this something that can be done fairly quickly and without alot of headache? Any info on this you think might help me make up my mind on buying one prebuilt or just changing mine out will be appreciated.

Re: T-Case gear question..........

the hardest thing will be, if your reusing the old bearing, getting them off without damaging them.

Hi -

The only special tools required would be a good impact gun to remove the flanges and a bearing puller. The 3-jaw posi-lock type works very well. You will need to remove and replace 3 bearings. As gear boxes go, it doesn't get much simpler and many people do it themselves.

Hi:
Not a hard job to do only took a few hours time.You will need a decent bearing puller,impact gun or as I did big o'l breaker bar and a good vice.only thing that gave me a problem was the speedo gear retaining coller.I had to carefully heat the case around it so I could twist that thing out.
Also get some kind of heavy duty T-case arms.The stock ones are not going to cut now.

Most of the 4.16 kits come with good install instuctions so
you won't get confused.A factory shop manuel is also an
excellent "tool" to add to your collection.Change the
shifter sheet while you're doing the job if you have'nt done
it already.

Re: T-Case gear question..........

Did it with a gear puller and hand tools. I bolted a piece of 2" angle iron about 1' long to the flange then used a breaker bar to get the flange nut off. First time it took me about 4 hours from the time I pulled it into the garage until I backed it out. As stated above make sure you get the speedo drive gear out before you try to split the case.
