Samuri Transfer Case

What's the deal with the "sheets" in the transfer case? My buddy has a Samuri with a bad transfer case. When shifting from 2 to 4 the shifter pops out of the shift rails, locking the T case in neutral. I can take the shifter out and get it back into gear using my fingers or a screwdriver to align the rails. Once its in gear the transfer case works fine. All the gear ranges work perfect. Is this a problem with the sheets? How hard are they to replace, and where can I get them? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you see a truck coming down the road and you start to vomit because it's so ugly, you know it's mine. That's a 78 Power Wagon in case your wondering.

Re: Samuri Transfer Case

Its a large rubber ring when you pull the shifter it should be on the sides of the shifter hole.
simple to replace and not too expensive. most sami mail order carry them.

Re: Samuri Transfer Case

Is it possible that there was never a sheet in there or the old one disintegrated. As far as I can remember all that came out of the shifter hole was the shifter itself, a spring, possibly a washer, the cap that held everything in place and the rubber boot on top. The Sam has about 155K on it. Do you guys think that this will help the problem? This appanently is a problem with all Samuris. Thanks, you guys have given me a lot of info.

Re: Samuri Transfer Case

The shifter sheet is a hadr rubber gasket looking thing,sorta like a hose washer. If you didn't find it I'd do an oil change to try to get it out of there before it causes any other problems. Where are you at in PA I'm just over the border in Northeast Maryland?

Re: Samuri Transfer Case

I live about 20 miles south of Hazleton in the heart of the coal region (read wasteland.) There is tons of great four wheeling around here. There is this one place that we go to near Pottsville called Blackwood. This could possible be the greatest place on the face of the earth. It's like one big party. This place is crazy. Here is link I found one day if you want to check it out.

Re: Samuri Transfer Case

Our sheets have a lifetime warranty and come with installation instructions. Takes about 15 minutes to change one out.

Re: Samuri Transfer Case

They do disintergrate, replaceing the "Sheet" should fix the problem your friend is having.
