SYE eliminator install issues
 
I've got the tcase out of the Jeep, but can't get the harmonic balancer off of the rear output shaft. I borrowed a harmonic balancer puller, but none of the bolts long enough to reach to the harmonic balancer. :banghead: How do I pull this thing off? Throwing a lot more money at it is not an option, I've already spent enough to have the wife pissed off. I'm headed out to see if I can find long enough bolts for it, but they're really small bolts that I doubt most places would stock. Any other tips that might help?

I used a puller for bearings with a really long reach, but I just had the slinger. No harmonic balancer.

I found some longer bolts, but they were still shy of the length I needed. I ended up tightening those bolts with the longer threads far enough to force it loose from the housing. It scarred up the housing a bit, but that was being replaced anyway.

I can tell I was in a rush to type out the thread title. A slip yoke eliminator eliminator would put me back to stock. lol. As for the progress, the transfer case is bolted back to the transmission. Tomorrow the skid plate will be cleaned and painted before installation, then I'm off to try my hand at adjustable rear upper control arms.

Yeah, but it sounds much cooler than "stock". :)

It's all installed save for the driveshaft that I'm waiting on. When I adjusted the pinion angle to the correct angle the shocks hit into the rear lower coil mounts. I just adjusted it down until it didn't hit anymore. I hope that works okay, the angles were still pretty close to what they should be. Should I be looking into welding new shock mounts to get the angle better? Or will it be fine as long as nothing hits and I don't get driveline vibrations?

I cut a notch out on my lower rear coil perches, to clear the shocks - worked great.

Notch the buckets. The not h required is extremely small and poses no issues.

Drivelineangle is key.

Could one of you post a picture of how you notched it? What did you use? I've got an angle grinder if that would work.

I'll put up a pic in a little. I used a seawall but either will work.

I'd appreciate that. I've still got a few days before my driveshaft comes in to get it all prepared correctly.

Sorry about the quality it was dark out.

An angle grinder will work fine; look at where the shock is contacting the bucket and clearance the bucket so it no longer hits. Should be stupidly simple.
