bardenk1 longtime coming but i got updates sorry i got side tracked

Docsuperwrench If you have a variety of 1/4" drive sockets, you can find one that fits pretty good, plus the grease. Use socket and an 1/4" drive extension.

64panhead you can use just wheel bearing grease. i always save my old pilot bushings i have needed them before in a pinch they also work good for making other things too.
12-04-2008 10:58 AM
bardenk1 yea i have read the dremel technique and drilling four holes CAREFULLY into the piolt bushing then breaking it into quarters to get it out. lol i have been procrastinating doing anything with it latley its the end of the semester and i have like 6 lab reports due and then some finals. i am going to get a thing of vasoline and try that because thats the thickest grease i can think of and its cheap if you dont buy name brand lol. and get the 7/8ths bolt and give it a wack. and yes grntj is right this pilot bushing can get destroyed because i am never using it again i had to order a new one... which i was wondering if ya guys knew since its new is it supposed to be damn tight trying to slip it over the input shaft? just curious or is it not really suppose to slide over it and just kinda be a guide, im going to wire wheel my input shaft (painted it black to stop it from rusting anymore) and see whats up

GrnTJ He cant reuse the bushing. A special bushing has to be purchased from novak or AA that fits the Jeep crank but accepts the np435's output shaft. But your right, thats the way most people I have seen get them out.
12-02-2008 05:21 PM
64panhead fill the middle of the pilot bearing with a thick grease and find a bolt just the same size as the hole in the middle and hit the head of the bolt with a hammer make shure the bolt is just smaller than the hole but not too small. repack it with grease as needed and this will drive the bushing out with hydrolic pressure around the shaft of the bolt. this leaves the bushing undamaged and could be reused if needed
12-02-2008 12:49 AM
GrnTJ I've also seen (in extreme cases) people take a dremel and get in there and grind out a spot on the bearing and thn take a chisel and a hammer and give it a good wack to crack it. then it will slide right out. But Id use that as a last resort or just be sure you have a steady hand and you dont grind all the way through to the crank itself. Good luck man!

bardenk1 i figured out what the issue was. one of the synchro's was stuck inside the big gear on the main-shaft. so i tapped them apart and greased the main-shaft where the gear slides and the synchro. it works much better now you just have to make sure you have the gears in neutral and the little plastic booty's line up in their appropiate places. i talked to novak today i have to take the adapter off and back the bolts i put into the transmission housing because they are not supposed to stick out at all and they stick out about 1/4 to an 1/8 of an inch all four of them which is kinda crappy. they also tried to ship out my bell-housing so at least i know it will be on its way in a day or two. also i am fighting the pilot bushing cause obviously mine has to be frozen in there. i tried the grease and bolt technique but the bolt i think is still to small. i had a 3/4 and am going to try and find a 7/8 or 15/16 bolt. it is messy as hell by the way. i also read i can try and thread the inside of the of the pilot bushing after i remove the little bearings and thread the bolt until it hits the crank and have it act like a puller ill keep you guys posted on which method works.

GrnTJ Good updates man, that adapter looks pretty nice. Sorry, do real ideas on how to line that up. Hopefully I will get my trans soon so I can be doing it to and try to help ya out. I found one for $80 from a very well running truck so I will probably have it soon.
11-27-2008 11:25 AM
bardenk1 shift cover is a fucking bitch to line up lol still isn't right as we speak but it was 11:30 on tuesday and i had work and school on wed and just gave up. just wanted to know if anyone has any idea how to line that thing up its a huge PITA. thats all for now waiting on the bell-housing
11-27-2008 11:20 AM

11-27-2008 11:16 AM

11-27-2008 11:11 AM

11-25-2008 11:39 AM

11-24-2008 11:40 PM
bardenk1 lol sorry i just got the novak conversion today. i gotta take pics and start the rebuild. i run my own company and am busy the next two days but ill take pics of all my new parts
11-24-2008 04:54 PM
GrnTJ Updates bardenk, we need updates!! lol
11-21-2008 10:52 PM
64panhead its ok i wish more people knew about the builders corner i see people are starting to talk more about big swaps and the are puting them in the other areas and are getting lost in all the other threads that dont relate to them. i was trying to put that nicely but i think you know what i mean
11-21-2008 10:27 PM
GrnTJ Yea for sure. Lol, I have such a crappy memory I already forgot you had that thread. Its like if a thread isnt at the top then I forget it was thereI like the way you did it now that I remember and I will likely go the exact same route.
11-21-2008 03:22 PM
64panhead grntj why dont you flip your 300 like i did look at my thread and see how i did it. its in the builders corner.that kit from down east is a friggin money grab you dont have to have shift rails on top.there are a lot of ways of doing it for cheap
11-20-2008 01:06 PM
GrnTJ Its probably a Power Lok, I had one of those in a D60 I had around here before I sold it. They are pretty good and if you flip the clutch pacs you can basically turn it into a locker because it'll engage much easier. Thats a good idea though, Im of the mind set that you can never over build but you can certainly underbuild. 4.10's would be perfect I think and when I swap my axles out way down the road Im probably gonna run 4.10's myself.

I dont think I can pay upwards of $500 to flip a 300 though. I read somewhere on how to do it for like $30 on pirate I think. Im gonna find that thread and go from there because A. Im poor and B. I want to see how cheaply a swap like this can be done and make a write up to show everyone you dont have to pay out the ass to do cool stuff like this. Not that there is anything wrong with spending the money if you can afford to do it that way but I just cant. I know theres a few other poor Jeepers out there like myself so Im gonna try to give them some hope, lol.
11-19-2008 05:00 PM
bardenk1 yea well if you want a kit that has everything you need i would look at Down East Offroad: Transfer Cases

they have a pretty killer setup and this guy Flipped Dana 300 Transfer Case

did a complete write up on his install start to finish with some detailed info and some cool ideas it will definatly help you along. i might actually be flipping my t-case back to passenger drop cause i talked to a local mechanic who has a set of dana 60 dodge axles he might hook me up with. the rear is a full floater not sure about the specs of the front like what it has and what not said its either 3.73 or 4.10 which ill take and the rear has a positrack which i don't know how good they are
11-19-2008 11:20 AM
GrnTJ Im gonna sell my 231 and just flip a D300 and run that instead. After I put the 4:1 in the 300 I will have all the gear I need combined with the trans. But deff. get some pics when you throw it back together.
11-18-2008 09:38 PM
bardenk1 i will take pics when i rebuild it but basically its four bolts and a snap ring holding all the top gears in lol. you have to change the top shaft (don't know the proper term just know its not called the main shaft, thats the big gears below.) when you get novak adapter to adapt your 231 now that i took it all apart its really easy and makes sense cause the guys at novak told me i would have to basically take the trans completely apart which made me nervous but its no biggy all you need a socket set, snap ring pliers, a hammer and flat head screw driver (the last two are for prying off covers)
11-18-2008 06:38 PM
GrnTJ I like the doubler, looks good. They are really sweet but for my application I dont think its necessary. So it looks like the inside of that trans is pretty simple eh? I was worried it might be complicated and Id forget how stuff went back together but it doesnt lok bad at all.
11-18-2008 06:36 AM
64panhead i know how duffy at D@D is
11-17-2008 08:18 PM
bardenk1 no its duffy at 4x4 machine he sells them at pirate 4x4. its $500 not too bad, but i would give duffy time he's one guy running a machine shop making these things lol so he takes a while took me two months to get mine
11-17-2008 08:06 PM
64panhead is that a mad rooster 231 doubler?
11-17-2008 07:02 PM
bardenk1 more pics the np 435 all gutted and painted and my garage i cleaned it so i figured i would snap a shot... don't i have a lot of room to work with?
11-17-2008 11:12 AM
