78 cj5 tc dana 20 problems

315 Views 1 Reply 0 Participants Last post by  FlMudCJ
I am having problems getting out of the low range of the 20. It works fine in 2 and 4 low, neutral spins them fine, but getting into the highs, I get nothing. It feels like the gears are not reaching to interlock. I checked the gears, replaced the gaskets, even replaced the thrustwashers in the middle gears. The gear arm seems fine and not bent. The only thing that I can think of is that I am, still not matching the gear selector with the location of where the gears are in relation to each other. I would hate to drop the TC again.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Please send any additional info to [email protected] as well as replies to this posting

I remember when I was test-driving my Cj my buddy and I were used to the wranglers and D300's (as well as electronic shift, but that's another beast).. We couldn't get the damned thing out of 4lo... we went back over to the mechanic and he told us to back up 10ft. it slid right out...
the t-case was in a mild bind and the gears wouldn't release each other... if that's not it, are you SURE the linkage isn't loose somewhere? I was chasing a loose connection for a long time, and it turned out to be the most accessable bolt the whole time.. I just couldn't see that it was the one that was sloppy with the t-case in the jeep! /wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif oh well...

Sorry if you already knew all that.
