Re: double t-case zook with nissan???

Bill,

Somebody posted here a couple of weeks ago talking about using an LJ80 t-case, and posted a picture of one as an auxilliary gearbox. It looked just like a Nissan t-case to me - might do a quick search on that....

Regards,

Re: double t-case zook with nissan???

That could work, but you would probably be better off using a samurai case. 14" long seems quite long to put between the tcase and tranny. The stock samurai tcases dont sit horozantal, they sit at an angle. Is it a divorced case? Flanges on all 3 shafts? Do you know what kind of gearing is in the case? The main problem i see is the length of the case, with my dual samurai tcases, i can just barley use the stock driveshaft (rear), without spacerss.. i got a few spacers in the front already.

Reo from http://www.nolimitoffroad.org was talking about doing this a while ago when I talked to him. He was running the LJ case in his Suzuki Pickup but kept breaking the shafts on them. You might give him a call and see what he says.

Re: double t-case zook with nissan???

hey anton, mine is just barely a zook anymore (see bio) + i'm moving the rear end back 12" WHEN I DO THE 3 LINK ANYWAYS. ooops caps lock. anyway, the zook case will be connected to the tranny via the intermediate shaft and will then be bolted flange to flang to the nissan case. (the nissan is divorced with 3 flanges and my sammy case will soon be horizontal) gearing appears to be 2.25 to 2.50 to 1 by eyeballing it. should be cool? + i'm running an auto tranny , so it should be looooow! we'll see what happens.
