That's impressive right there....at least you found the cause of the problem?
And at least you didn't roach some unobtanium part.
Did you figure out the how & why of this happening to you - I saw you added a qt to the case, but from memory it's a ~3qt unit.
That gear looks like you cold welded the teeth.
Transfer case holds 1.4 qts, if it was needing that much to bring it to full then it was almost empty. Looks like that has not been good to the gears in this T case.
Damn, I was off. I guess it makes sense then what happened.
Impressive carnage, that would do it, oil is good!
I know better and usually check oil levels several times a year. disappointed with myself. lessons learned. several other small leaks and maintenance items that will be getting addressed in the coming months. glad to have him rolling again.
How long have you owned this truck and how many miles have you put on it since owning?
That doesn't happen without noise and oil that looks like glitter paint or lumpy oatmeal.......
since January 2006. 80k. has about 220k.
agree. I think it happened fast. couldn't see any other damaged gears or bearings.
