well i fixed it up pached the hole and went to payette and its loose again i used locktight but it came loose again if i take the tranny out clean and tighten???? cruiser out fit has a gasket set for 17. whats the best plan ?? ... kevin , you know any slik tricks how do i keep this together an no drips
Howdy! Like Rhino, I've never seen or heard of this being a common problem. IIRC, you are running a 4.3 in your FJ 40, but I don't remember which transmission and adapters. If your running just an H41/42, I don't think a fresh paper gasket between the tranny and transfer would make much difference. Are you using the AA style transfer case support to the frame? John
OK. I would check the threads in that aluminum adapter. They may be sloppy enough to allow the bolts to vibrate loose. Also, watch out for the bolts in the rear support. I have seen them get loose in the back of the transfer case. I stripped several of them out, and I had to oversize them. John
my buddy runs the same tranny and case setup and has not had problems in 4 yrs. i cant imagine a gasket making a difference. like john said, sloppy threads could be the culprit. would it be worth it to take it apart and permamently fix studs instead of bolts?
