T-Case Identification?

Hi Guys,

I bought another Zuk yesterday and it has the old style T-case with emergency brake on it (its an 84 zuk). Question is...I know that 83 T-cases are not suitable for Crawler gears building, but that 84 are. How can you tell if you have an 83 or 84 t-case...? I know the truck is 84, but I was told the early 84's where the same t-cases as the 83's, is this true..?

BTW, I've got an 84 case already, so I'll probably sell that one to whomever gives me a good price. I'll probably put it on ebay soon

Thanks Guys!

Re: T-Case Identification?

hi
ijust had this very same conversation with brent from trail tuff....what you will be looking for is underneath the shifter houseing....the good t-case will have the steel bar sticking out of the t-case with a little keeper and a 10 mm bolt,just like the sammy t-case the unusable t-case will have this area covered with aluminum no steel bar showing no littel keeper,just aluminum.....best of luck.............
rabidray ps i have a 410 case out in the garage

Re: T-Case Identification?

Thanks Rabid, I`ll check that tomorrow...

I don`t know how mutch they go for, I tried searching for them on completed items, but couldn`t find one, I guess they are rarer than I though... [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Anyways, we`ll see soon if this is the right one... [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Re: T-Case Identification?

Re: T-Case Identification?

I just got an '84 tcase today and was wondering if the cable & linkage for the drum type emergency brake has to be modified to work on a Samurai.

I really just wanted a Baby Lobster with the 12% gear reduction, but from looking at the photo above this one is the type with the coveted gears in it. (but it's not quite that clean)

Straight fit, I've moved mine from 83 to 86 then to 89 to 91 then back to 83 so yeah they all fit.. (rear output shaft ONLY all other are different)
