A big thanks to Junior and Dave for coming down and doing some serious rebuilding!
We started at 9:30 and Junior hit the road at almost 8 pm.
What we got done was a complete rebuild of a 3 speed Toyota transfer case, new bearings,
seals and gaskets. None of us had ever taken one apart but Junior spent a few minutes with
the FSM and figured it out. A press would of been nice but we made due with hammers and drifts.
The SM420 is about 80% done, we got to a point where we needed to install 2 wire springs, unfortunately
one was broken so I need to source that out before we can finish.
We did have to fabricate a special tool to take apart the input shaft so we could replace the bearing.
Got a piece of steel from the pile and Junior donated a punch that was the right size and we welded
it up. Worked great!
Bette made us a nice lunch which we washed down with a nice cold beer that Dave brought.
Got alot done and had a good day with friends!
Wow...those syncro rings look incredibly worn!!!!!
Do you know which spring is missing or broken in there? You think it will be hard to source?
