Np 261

OK its not a Jeep but my ex's truck is fubar'd and my son has to ride in it so I have been fixin all the problems. Her mechanic friend is a dumbass because he aint done shit to maintain anything like she said he was. He said she had bad u-joints but on my first look I found them to be fine, but the slip yoke wiggles and there is clunking inside the t-case when you move the driveshaft and alot of slack while driving it. The fluid is contaminated with water so I thing the bearings are toasted. The clunking noise is back where the chain is. Does anyone have an opinion on this. I say bearings but I dont have alot of experience with messin with t-cases. A master rebuild kit should solve the problem huh? If so I'm rebuilding it. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

rebulidng a chain driven t case, or any t case for that matter isn't too complicated. a mechanical person with some tools can do it, but if you factor in the time and money on rebuild, you could just swap one in if you can find one. i'd bet you can find one pretty easy.

I dont want a used donor and a new one is almost 1700 dollars the master rebuild is $255. So id rather rebuild it if thats the case which listening to the noise makes me think I should. I'm pretty mechanically inclined and it would give me something to do.

it tells me to sign in. i've had many t cases apart, but not many rebuilds for these specific problems. i know the chains get stretched over time, if you're rebuilding it, i'd be sure to replace the chain.

You have to go to the list on the side in order not to sign in. I found a new chain goes for about 60 dollars so its not to bad.

There aint really alot to the kit so it shouldnt be to bad. I think pulling it out will be the worse part. And washing that red GA clay shit off of everything.
