Removing transfer case from transmission

I thought this would be an easy task, since both are out of the truck. I remove the bolts holding the transmission to the transfer case and I can slide it out about 1 inch and then it stops. I just wanted to make sure I am not missing something before I go breaking something. Is there a trick to removing this?

Re: Removing transfer case from transmission

All the stickshifts I have been around just came apart. I think the T350 adapter only comes apart one way. If you list what you are working on someone may have an answer for you.

Re: Removing transfer case from transmission

What tranny and what t-case? NP205's mated to an SM465 will come right apart, but the NP205 is a cast iron tank, so be careful.

Re: Removing transfer case from transmission

I was able to get it out. I had to use a 2x4 for some leverage, and was able to persuade it out with a few taps from a hammer onto the 2x4.

It is the NP205 TC, I'm not sure which tranny though? Also, what does that 195 mean for Ratio?

Re: Removing transfer case from transmission

Looks like a Saginaw 3 speed from here. I'd need to see the side cover to be positive.

Re: Removing transfer case from transmission

1.95 is the low range ratio. In other words twice as low as high range. Most newer aluminum cases are around 2.72:1 reduction.

Re: Removing transfer case from transmission

Now that I'm ready to put the trans and transfer case back together, where in the heck to I find that gasket? No one local has it, and the only place I found online is here for $17.39. I can live with paying the $17.39 for a piece of cardboard, but the cheapest shipping is almost $10 bringing the total to over $27. Seems a little steep for a gasket

Are there any other places that sell these that someone here hopefully knows of?

Permatex is all I have ever used on a 4spd adapter.

RTV or get out a razor and cut your own.....

in school we used cereal boxes n a ballpen hammer to make them on small engines. hammer lightly taps out the outline then you cut it out.

Re: Removing transfer case from transmission

Ok. Looks like I'll attempt a home made recipe. I guess it should work ok. Not like there is any pressure build up that could cause a leak

That reminded me of one my buddy did. He was driving a semi and the air compressor blew a head gasket. He coasted into a truck stop. The only thing they had to make a head gasket out of was a box of Crispy Creames. That rig made better air than its companion truck and was still rocking the donut gasket 2 years later.

yep cardboard box gaskets do last, other odd thing we learned and used was business cards to set mag to flywheel air gap and points.

1 for air gap, 2 for setting points. since their thicknes was uniform, even though we had feeler gauges in our tool boxes.

The teacher thoought outside the box on his lessons

Re: Removing transfer case from transmission

I used to use a match book for the points. In the 80s the covers got a little thicker and you had to find a thinner cover. Slide it around a little and it would even clean the contacts a little bit. Tricks of the old trade.

Re: Removing transfer case from transmission

Was simple enough. Made my own gasket out of card stock that I had lying around. I hope it's heavy enough to hold up
