Stoopid T-case Question.....

Does the '85 transfer case have the lower gears like the '84 and older?? I know someone that has one, if it has the gears I will start badgering<font color=red>(badgers??...we don't need no stinking badgers!!)</font color=red> him until I get it!

When I die I wanna' be buried in my Samurai....cause I haven't found a hole it can't climb out of yet!!! [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

Yes, the 84 and 85 are both baby rocklobsters.
There are a few exceptions, but most follow these spec's.

Low 2.268

RockLobster(85 down)High 1.581
Low 4.163

Low 4.89

I thought the 85 was the same as the 86 and up except it housed the e-brake drum unlike 86 and up.

Re: Stoopid T-case Question.....

Is the gear raitio of the stock 85 not like 15 or 18% lower in both high and low (eg. there is no crawling 4:16, 4:8x gear raitio on the low end side or is that an 85 that has been modified?)

Re: Stoopid T-case Question.....

The gearing of my stock '85 transfercase was the same as '86+ models. The only difference was that it had the drum-style emergency brake bolted to it like an '84.

Re: Stoopid T-case Question.....

I've got one from an 85 (02/85) 410 and it has the 12% reduction. It also has a 4 speed tranny and 1 liter engine. Also the driveshafts are made like a Samurai as opposed to the 84 d-shaft and the bolt pattern is the same as my 88.5 (12mm).

Re: Stoopid T-case Question.....

The Rocklobster T-case is NOT A STOCK T-CASE from 85 and older. It takes the counter gear from a 84-85 case to mate with the rest of the late model (ie 86 and above) TO MAKE THE 4.16 GEAR SET
The "BABY" Rocklobster you refer to is 2.8-3 Something( I think....But I know it is not 4.16

Re: Stoopid T-case Question.....

Thanks fer clearing that up bill.. The gear has to be welded from the older style of x-fer case correct? Eg. it is not a simple swap of gears and instant cool.. Don't ferget to get a good set of x-fer case arms.. Or a very very very very nice skid plate w/x-fer case mounts integrated into the design.
