|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 !!|

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.

I agree that it's a very easy job (I would put it in the 2-3 range), there were other issues to contend with internally. The pump was shot, and as a result, all of the bearings were toast as well. The chain was binding up, so the gears were getting chewed up too. I did price everything once I got it apart, didnt make financial and labor sense to polish the turd, just sayin...

|Matt10||I'm 17 and I rebuild my transfer case. It's not hard just take it out of the jeep and set in on a workbench. Buy a chain and rebuild kit and fix it for $200. Yes it is time consuming but on a hard meter is about a 5-6 out of 10|

|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
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 ?
