loud whistle it gets worse and the motor runs above 2000 rpm's. Any one

Richard--
The transfer case transfers drive power to the rear wheels, and to all four
wheels when you are in four wheel drive.
In other words, it gets its power from the transmission, and transfers it to
the rear wheels (all the time), and also transfers it to the front wheels when
you are in four wheel drive.
As for it leaking, keep an eye on it. Like a transmission it can be damaged if
it is allowed to operate while there is no lubricating fluid in it. But since
they replaced the seal, you probably won't have any more problems with it.

Note to all list members:
- -------------------------
If you had trouble in the past posting messages and we corrected
it by adding a second email address set to "nomail" for you then
you will have problems posting. "Nomail" is not a valid option
with the new server. If you receive an email stating "non-member
submission", you're going to have to find out what your exact
email address is (bob email.msn.com as opposed to bob msn.com),
uns*bscribe your existing address and s*bscribe your exact address.

I'm planning on modifying the Perl source code to the Majordomo
list server to add "nomail" and several other features. This may
take a while.

Note to digest list members:
- ----------------------------
a. One minor table of contents bug has been found and should be
corrected soon.

b. Digests are not generated on a daily basis. Digests are generated
after 40k of messages are built up. I am adding a timed job on
the server to generate digests around 4:00 am (EST). This is a good
time since the server isn't very busy then.

Hang in there, the ride is rough but the destination is worth it.

Subject: FTE Small - Thanx & Transfer Question

Thank You Ken and (Co-Admin ?), for your efforts. This list is my favorite.

Question;
Ranger 4xsuper cab 5spd '87 2.9;
While changing my drive shaft I noticed the transfer case was a
Borg-Warner unit. I will need to do a clutch soon. While I have the unit(s)
on the floor. I was wondering at 175 thousand miles, what I should do for
maintenance. Besides cleaning it off. Fluid is a year old, never been
touched otherwise.

It is the stock t-case. What model is it?

Anyone have a tip on how *not* to get crushed, once this
small-monster Transmission and t-case combo is loose. The whole rig looks
enormous compared to the last one it did, It was a MG Miget, sans the bell
housing, that trany would fit in a medium sized suit case. (the MG also
required you to remove the engine to do a clutch.)

Andrew,

I had to remove my transfer case to get my trany out on my 93'. You might need to do the same.

I live up in the San Jose/Silcone Valley area. I'm buying my Dana 35 from
Santa Clara Truck Wreckers (408-727-2244). I've used them for both the
refurbished 8.8 rearend ($800-wheel to wheel, drums had been turned, new
brake pads, pre-loaded with a limited slip, 4.56's and a driveline adapter)
and a rebuilt mitsubishi 5-speed (about $1100 installed (with metal
plugs!!!)). I have had no problems with either (much wheeling abuse), good
company, good service.
With the 35" tires and 4.56's I'm at about a 45.37 crawl ratio, not bad. On
the freeway, I'm running at about 2750 rpm's in 5th gear at 65 mph, also
not bad. By going to the 5.13's would only kick me up to a 51.03 crawl
ratio and lose top end and what gas mileage I have left. My issue is lower
Transfer Case gearing which is not yet available for our stock t-cases. If
we could get someone to manufacture a 4.0 granny gear then we'd have
something!!
I haven't decided on the extended radius arms... either the new James Duff
model or Super Lift. Last time I checked with James Duff they were close to
production on a model for my stock truck ('88 STX with Dana 28 and rubber
mounted tranny crossmember), they did have the new radius arms for the more
standard Ranger/Bronco II apps. They look good. However, I may need to go
with custom fabrication (?).
The adapter for the stock driveline to 8.8 rearend is just a small metal
plate that matches-up the bolt pattern. SCTW asked if I planned to keep my
stock driveline and included this with the rearend. Have a good one!!
Later..... Pete

Subject: FTE Small - best for baby bronc'

hey all,
I have a simple product question. Who is making the most complete
body lift kits for Bronco II's at a reasonable price? also has any one
done a body lift to there bronc', and what should I be on the look out
for when I do it? I want to run at least 31's but I can't afford a
suspesion lift I only do occasional offroading, so what is my best bet?
Any thing would be helpful.

Thanks,
T.J.

I went with a Black Diamond kist for my ranger. The kits are going to
be the same thing. You get however many plastic spacers you need,
nuts, bolts and washers, and a steering spacer. That was a 3 inch body
lift. I wouldn't go any bigger than 30's with that though...even 30's
rub in a few places....oh yeah....Warn makes Black Diamond, and it
cost me about 65$.

Good luck
