t-case

<center>Well here's the update. I made new mounts and they worked great! I would say they will not break and they also replace the stock mounts. But the new news is that they hold so well I ripped the side of the t-case apart [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] All the gears aren't hurt as far as I can tell. Does anyone have a good needs rebuilt t-case they would want to part with? I need that to get back on the road. And with the gear and tire combo that I have I am also going to get the Forest Bucket for this next time around. If you are wondering, I am also open front and rear with 3.07 in the axels.

Re: t-case

Here is my solution to the same problem . I used jb weld to fill the cavity and then used studs instead as they are stronger . I used red threadlocker to lock the studes in on top of it . I then installed it in a mighty kong to lock it all together .As of yet I have had no more problems with my t case !

Re: t-case

Well, I guess that means you got it home OK,,,, it always gives me a sick feeling to see gear oil pouring out on the ground. Hope the gears arent hurt,,,, good luck,,,

Re: t-case

Grumpy,

I would submit that at least part of the reason for the t-case explosion is due to the greatly unbalanced gear ratios that you are running in the t-case and diffs.

3.07 gears in the diffs provide little reduction at the driveshaft, therefore the t-case is seeing much higher torque loads than thru a "usual" setup.

Just for comparison, your final drive (t-case x diff) is 19.95. Mine, using a 4,89 t-case and 4,88 diffs, is 23,86, higher than yours and at the same time, with a lot less load being put on the t-case.......

HTH,

Bill
