Re: install 4:16 gears

If you pull the tcase yourself and bring it in somewhere, plan on having a shop bill you for about 1 hour of work.

If they have to pull the tcase, do the gears, and reinstall the tcase, plan on them billing you for about 2 hours of work.

The installation of 4.16 gears is easy. Any street corner gas station garage can do it. Most folks try and tackle it themselves.

Re: install 4:16 gears

Im in southeast texas and the local transmission shop is installing my gears and all new bearings I provided for $100. I think that is a fair price. Scott

Re: install 4:16 gears

Yeah, I would probably charge $100-$150. (not that I am a mechanic)

Don't know this but if it is the same as 5:81's 4wheelsportutility mag has a step by step on the install. Doesn't seem extremely difficult but I have never done it. Jim

Re: install 4:16 gears

Well if you really don't want to tackle it yourself then you have several options...

Get it done locally...KT's up here at Nixons cross-roads should be able to do it.

You could always bring it to Zuwharrie and try to sweet talk someone there to do it [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: install 4:16 gears

I am trying to get to Zuwarrie on Saturday. heck I'm even gonna miss by b'day on 10/15 cause I gotta be in Charleston, SC for a required continuing education class to keep my building official CBO status. My job may be ending at Barefoot Resort and I need to keep my credentials current as I really would like to finish my career as a building official/inspector somewhere in the mountains of NC. I'd be willing to pay $100.00/$150.00 to someone to do the 4:16 swap. Might be someone out there who wants to come to Zuwarrie who otherwise wouldn't make it...???? I am going to try to make this year if at all possible..even just for Saturday to put some faces to the names of the great persons on this fantastic BBS board. By the way Jbird I still have my Pony carb but my factory carb just will not go away...150k miles now..
