What I’m trying to figure out is that spacer is 0.60” wide. I cut a spacer that was 7/8” which allowed the gears to mesh properly. Am I missing something else between the spacer and the input gear?

This is the gear mesh with that AA spacer.

Oh man. Yeah I think you have the gear backwards. It should only have one sealing surface, for the input seal that also appears to be missing. That seal surface on the gear looks like it’s pretty torn up, might be the pic though. Make sure you put the AA spacer in before the seal. It has a larger diameter then the seal opening. If you’re going to replace the input gear a spline input gear from Cruiser Outfitters is highly recommend, especially with your 4BT torque.
And you’ll also want to plug that unused bolt hole below, otherwise oil can pool between the adapter and front T-case half. I always had a leak there until I plugged that hole.
I think I actually learned that from your build thread @boots4 :lol: I realize it’s been over a decade since you wrote that section though.

Maintenance evening.
View attachment 2353068
My Wabco vaccum pump has been leaking oil at the seal between the front and back half of the vacuum pump. It was starting to get bad and decided to replace it and my weeping power steering pump while I was doing this too. Both were replaced under warranty. Was a great time to degrease everything and clean it all up. Went and swapped out the VP and PSP.

Installed the VP but the trickiest part is the back top bolt of the power steering pump. Had to use a small 14MM socket with a small hex adapter extension and 1/4” box end wrench. Also the lip on the body of the power steering pump was hitting the lower bolt that’s the bracket for the injection pump. Used flap disc and contoured the lip so it’d clear the bolt.

Got it all back assembled and refilled power steering pump and bled the air in system by lifting front of the 60 off the ground and rocking tires slowly side to side.

Took Snowball ❄ for a test drive up the road and got back. No leaks. Decided to continue to degrease and and pressure wash.

All spiffy :rofl:
@Mr Cimarron how many Wabco vacuum pumps have you had fail. This is my 3rd reman.
Still on the original but don’t know who many miles on it. When I bought the engine it was missing the VP on delivery so the seller pulled one from another engine to send me. I’ve rebuilt it once about 30K ago.

The rear LED lights are nice and bright.

Think they’ll go nice in the front 4plus bumper.

Stopped by Cascade Rigging Products today to get some new clevis rings.

While there a product developer for WARN Industries was there with new product for Cascade Rigging to test.

Apparently they test a lot of products for WARN since they are just down the road.

So is your transfer case actually squared away now? I was having nightmares about missing seals, backwards gears..
Just ordered from @cruiseroutfit a new split case gasket and long spacer for the input shaft as I cut mine shorter.
Driving the 60 I’m noticing no issue. Noise and shifting isn’t n issue but am going to install that AA spacer as soon as I get parts from Cruiser Outfitters. Thanks Matt for the heads up!
I’ll have a follow up as soon as I can

The calendar says July but the weather at the Crater Lake property doesn’t show it.

Campout with my buddy Eric and family from Pennsylvania 3rd week of July. He rented a motor home to come back out west. My old climbing buddy. He moved from Oregon in 2005 so really looking forward to seeing him.
Happy Independence Weekend IH8MUD family 🇺🇸
