Transfer Case/Drive Line / Re: MC 21 spline 4.7 input gear fail
« Last post by gnob on Today at 07:40:00 AM »
I have been told you don't run the front case and not the rear, I am told this will result in sheered input shafts.
How are you supposed to accomplish stock low then?
This is not entirely true and if it is entirely true, whats the point in having dual cases at all?

I run front case only ALOT.

I would do steel. 

1. you can repair it on the trail if you bend a lip.
2. more thread engagement for lugnut.  (This is my main rule, seen too many wheels fall off, because of not enough thread engagement)

Iíve run both steel and alloy wheels.

95% of my 4x4 wheeling was rock crawling, and my trucks were also daily drivers.

I did not like the steel wheels.  First, they weigh more than steel wheels (more unsprung weight is not good for wheeling).  And two, steel wheels bend easily and almost impossible to repair back to original.  Steel wheels have a sharp lip at the outer edge which was always catching on rocks.  The alloy wheels have a flatted edge and did not catch rocks as easily.  :blah:

That is just my limited experience.

sometimes its the small things, like a working windshield washer.

A previous owner put an aftermarket pump on the inner fender but it doesn't pull to well through the old rusted out pump. i blocked off the hole for the rear washer pump, put a new one in the tank for the front and fixed the wiring... ta da a working windshield washer.

But.... your new awesome looking bling-snorting-heavy-duty-rooty-tooty WINCH is adding to your exciting 100 mile drive!!  :thumbs:

Transfer Case/Drive Line / MC 21 spline 4.7 input gear fail

It is Australia Day long weekend  down under so myself and one son and his son decided  to do a trip to Tasmanias' wild west coast  , me alone in the hilux and them in a petrol 80 Series  .We left Hobart on Friday Afternoon  for the 300km drive to Queenstown ,  camped about 10kms past Derwent Bridge  at 8pm , on the road again at 8 am with 90kms to go, topped up fuel at Queenstown and headed south and did the Mt Huxley track  in typical west coast weather 100% rain, after several hours wew completed the track then headed south again to tackle Mt Darwin track, we did about 2kms of Mt Darwin track and gave up because of the slipperyness of the track  due to moss etc , it was dangerous to walk on  so we came down and did the Mt Jukes track instead , and on the way back down  with the son in front  had trouble getting up one severe steep section which took him 3 attempts  to get up , then I had a go and couldnt get up and on the last attempt  i tried grabbing 2nd gear and it went bang and then no drive  front case was in low and the back case in high, had to winch it out , got it home and on sunday  removed both T cases, as the pictures show the 21 spline 4.7 input gear failed  in the rear case . yes I know it should be 23 spline  but when i first installed duals the engine was a 2.8 diesel with 60KW  driving a G52 ,21 spline gearbox and T case , so with duals everything was 21 spline , then upgraded to a 1KZ-T  ( 93KW  285Nm )  with a R151F  gear box , so had to get a 23 spline 2.28 input gear
