I\'ve got a line on a GV v6 but...

Got a possible line on a GV v6 with a 4wd t-case.

Was wondering. On a Kick 4wd tranny/tcase, the rear shaft comes down the middle, not offset. Will it line up with the input of the sammy t-case? Who has done this and what is involved? You can give me the Cliff Notes version.

Otherwise, how about using the GV tranny/t-case paired to a Sammy front axle (hybrid) and a GV rear axle (centered diff) and just run Kick t-case gear reduction?

No one here has put a kick tranny in a Sammy?

Re: I\'ve got a line on a GV v6 but...

Well Thats this winters project. Will involve a frame lengthning, I am going to take out the gears for the front d-shaft from the tracker, and chop that section off so my d-shaft will clear, and bolt a plate in its place. Shaffer
runs one, he ran a 2 piece d-shaft to clear the tracker/Kick t-case, I want to keep it simple. I have the trans/tranfer case out back so you can measure /look at it this weekend if you want.

Cool. I can get the V6 and tranny for $1500. It only has 11,000 miles. Might be worth it.

Re: I\'ve got a line on a GV v6 but...

If it was my nickels to spenf I'd put the whole GV drivetrain in with a 4:1 gear set and then forget about the Sam t-case. If it measures up that the rear propshaft angle is too severe add a centered diff rear axle.

You can eliminate the slip yokes with some creative machining, bolting and welding. At least it looks like it is possible from the factory schematics in the shop manual.

With the V6 and the Trackick t-case I don't think the Sam t-case will last very long....it might but not being a gambling man I wouldn't try it. Hell, the Sam t-case cracks open like an egg when lined up as a second t-case behind an otherwise stock 1300cc engine...

If I had the money/time I'd jump at that $1500 engine combination. To make it really cool you need to put it in a LWB though.

LWB??? Easy for you to say when you're sittin' the the great white with plenty of them around. Down here, there like an honest politician (impossible to find).

Yeh, I was thinking of just using the entire drivetrain. That way I wouldn't need to screw with a hybrid rear. Still would like a hybrid front though.

And the 136% lower t-case gears would make it do-able. Hmmm, might choose that route instead.
