transfer case chain installation

Hi, well recently i started to hear alot of noises coming from under the jeep. It only happens when im going around 45-50 mph and i press the clutch in or put it in nuetral. Basically when theres slack in the transmision, drivelines, etc. Just when everthing rolling. It like a fast racheting sound. I think it might be the transfer case chain that may have slack in it or just stretched. Does anyone know some good write-ups on how to replaced this. thanks

It's a piece of cake. If you basically follow the instructions on how to do an SYE swap then you will see how the chain comes out. You'll have to crack the back of the case.

I'd say the sound you describe takes the input shaft bearing out of play so chain is the only other thing it could be in the Case.

I was trying to look on www.advanceadapters.com to see if they had instructions on the SYE online. However on my pc at the office it blocks any link I try to click on from their home page. But you might start from there.

Yep - my chain clacked around in the XJ. When I rebuilt it, it had stretched a good 1/4-3/8 inch. When you'd let off the gas and coast, you could hear it clack and rumble.

So are you wanting to know where you can get a new chain for a reasonable price? Or a whole new case? Check out the JB Conversions site. They sell reman kits for 231's to beef them up, and you might also check Ebay.

Busting apart the case isn't going to cost you anything, but an hour or so of your time.
