  • T-Case teardown

    So as posted before, I ran into some horrendous noises comming from my T-case last month. Well I decided to tear it down to see if the damage was in between the main casing to the driveshaft. Because if it was, I could do a repair while also accomplishing an upgrade to a Slip Yoke Eliminator. I decided to do this with my T-case still installed as I was not planning to get too crazy with the teardown.

    Got under the YJ, removed the slip yoke and rear driveshaft and WOW! Was I amazed by what I saw as I continued to tear down. Here are some pics....anyone ever experience this before?


    As I got to the housing under the tailcone, I turned it by hand and I heard some loose metal rattling behind the casing:



    I heard the noise again as I removed the "speedo controller", so I looked inside the housing where the speedo was......and I saw this:





    Yes, that is a metal ring around the shaft in there.

    So I removed the next housing in hopes to figure out what that was.....



    This was my finding:





    It looks as though the bearing race actually "forced" out the housing that was supporting it.

    Looks like I will get to install a SYE. Already ordered/paid for it....just waiting for it to get here.

    I would love to hear comments on this. Anyone ever run ito this before?

      Is it steel or aluminumum? Did it come off the back of the oil pump housing? Creative shimming by a former owner?

        From the looks of it, it was a bearing retainer that was a part of the housing itself. If you look closely at the pictures, you can see the rough marks where it was at.

        All I can figure is that the load that the increased angle that my driveline had on the T-Case (due to the springover) forced the bearing backwards, and the housing just gave in.

        That "ring" was metal that was the T-Case housing as far as I can tell. :confused:
