Alright guys,
Made a bone head move last night installing my new woody i had special ordered for my front. I over torqued the bolt on the clamp going to the front yoke on the transfer case. No sense in trying to retap that. Im going to order a replacement. How hard is it to swap? And what tool/oil do i need to make this happen as smoothly as possible... ALL THE HELP AND INPUT IS DEFINITELY NEEDED WITH THIS ONE. ABOVE MY PAY GRADE.

Thanks Guys!!!!

Why not retap it? You just have to hold the yoke somehow and turn the nut off... You best have a good impact/socket set for this job. It can be VERY tough to get off with hand tools/breaker bar. But all it is is the one nut.

What do you mean turn the nut off? I have a good impact and socket set (thats how i got myself into this mess the from the start. I over torqued the nut with my 3/8 drive like it was nothing) So am i better off re tapping it (i dont have any taps or dyes) or buying a new one and swapping it out?

Okay you said you stripped out one of the 4 holes for the drive shaft yoke, correct?

You want to replace that?

It slides over the front output shaft and is held on by a big nut, 1 1/8" I think.

You need to take that off. The yoke pulls right off. Put the new one on and retorque.

Your talking about the bolt for the straps that hold the u-joint on right.? Just drill the holes out and change over to the u-bolt style, much stronger.
