peety I put the "new" transfer case in last night, I didn't realize that the old one was such a POS. I can hear myself think again, huge difference. Mud test tonight after work !!

Yeah I opened mine up and it was still good. Just got a rebuild kit for about $100 and a chain for the same price and did it myself. I had a shop quote me $1,000 for new case and labor. But if the inside is all chewed up it would be way easier and cheaper just to buy I used one I agree.

sevenservices wow man, sounds frustrating.

look back through each part where two things mesh together and make sure nothing is out of place... thats about all I can think of. If it fit before, you'd think it would now. Thats why I'm thinking that. Is it possible a spacer is out of place? Something on the wrong side a gear? not sure... But I'd double check it all w/lots of good light.

According to Jack, there really isn't too much demand for the 21 spline cases as cores because they really dont break all that often, it's almost always a lubrication issue that causes the failures.

peety I went to No Excuses in New Egypt and spoke to Jack yesterday after work. We determined that it would be far more cost effective to simply replace the T-case with a used unit which he knew to be in good condition. $250.00 out the door.

Transfer Case Chain Issue


88 YJ
2.5 5-speed
NP231 Transfer Case (and a whole bunch of other stuff that has no bearing on the subject at hand)

1. Transfer case chain was slipping and making all kinds of racket
2. Bought a new chain from Quadratec, I drove there to get it and they assured me that it was the correct part
3. Split the case in the Jeep Saturday
4. Cleaned everything out and installed the new chain
5. Re-installed the rear case half
6. ATTEMPTED to reinstall the Oil Pump housing/output shaft bearing, no such luck, the shaft is 1/4-5/16" off to the 8 O'clock position
7 Tried a cheater bar, feet, yelling, and cursing to no avail.
8. Parked in my chicks garage, I'm VERY MUCH NOT TOO HAPPY...
9. Driving my buddys spare 5.9 Grand (nice change being able to pass up hills, lol)

Any Ideas ?
Pete
