Re: Dual T-cases

JEEPN,

i am currently putting a TDiesel into my blue CJ6-alike...

and we plan on mating the Dana18 transfer DIVORCED behind the stock tranny/transfer combo...

this means the D18 would be closed by a flange (to be stand-alone) and there would be a short driveshaft going from the rear of the Mazda-transfer into the D18...

how does that sound to you? do you have any ideas if this would work?

thx
alfred

Re: Dual T-cases

JHS is right about the alignment. I am a pump expert and have seen many failures on direct coupling and belt driven pumps, 75% of the time the failure is due to improper alignment, 20% of the time it's overlubrication, and 5% of the time it's other smaller factors. The alignment MUST be in all 3 axis, not just one, and not just "close". Once aligned properly, the bearings are expected to last, with proper lubrication, over one million hours. Improper alignment and improper lubrication are the two most common failures I see in my field. On the less critical items, it's OK to get them close, like within 0.020", but on the more critical pieces of equipment we use laser alignment devices.

If the couplings are mounted to the same frame, then proper alignment is more likely.

The flexible couplings will work and are a good idea, but they are not designed for high RPM applications, typically not over 3,600 rpm's, which is what most electric motors use. There are several different coupling designs available, with fixed and removeable flexible bellows, but none that will really work. I looked into them for a tranny swap, but came up empty. I'm going to design my own subframe and use it for the tranny swap later on, I know how to align the couplings, but it ain't gonna be easy for use long term. U-joints are a good way, keep in mind you have to use 2 of them so they'll self cancel, or you can use a CV shaft.

Re: Dual T-cases

Sean, i will be ready, im mostley done. theres just a few other little things i goto do before.
Im pretty much done the dual tcase thing, IT IS LOW!! With 33's, both in low range i can drive around in 5th that i could easily do in 1st before.. so now i can jsut crawl in 1st. I got my lockright in the fornt axle, rennie should be a breeze. a small list of things i would like to/have to do before august longw weekend.
fill tcases with oil.
change oil in diffs and tranny
change oil in engine
put in CB
beef up rear bumper mounts
rocker panel protection..
If i have time i would like to make a skidplate for my tcases(they hang a bit lower now), and make some protection for the pumkins
Im also going to mount long shocks on the rear.. when i lifted the truck up on the hoise (lifing on the frame), there was plenty of front travel but in the rear my expading shackles didnt even open.
for whoever was asking, i used my stock driveshafts.
Sean what all do you goto do to finish your zuk?
