First ?..yes..if you have your original t case in truck..then adding duals is a bolt in..you'll need to adjust DLs add hole in tunnel. And get a dual crossmember..
Thanks Original transfer yes, but is it the Dual Case Kit MC08 I need ? I'm unsure because of the Chevvy TH350 automatic transmission. Should I also aim to swap out my original tranny gears with 4.70:1 gears ? Or would that be pointless? Sent fra min SM-N975F via Tapatalk
If you truck is driving...you must have an adapter from t350 to your original tcase..so dual cases will bolt up..the 4.70 gears that marlin sells are for the transfercase..NOT the tranny..if your planning on running duals..you may as well break the bank and order the Dual ultimate 2 28/4.7.. you cant go wrong... Also with tires larger then 35s I would recommend 5:29 gear ratio for your diffs...
In your case...with your year..ideally you would have 21 spline crawl box with 4.70 geared rear transfercase..the case will need to be clearenced for the larger 4.70 gears..there are plenty of vids explaining this..
I have a 350/t350 in my toyota mud truck. With stock 410 gear and stock case it does just fine. In your case since you are wanting to crawl. Keep this all simple and just put a 4.7 gear set in your case and othwrwise leave it as is.
Unless you are just determined to waste over $2000 us dollars I am telling you, I have the exact same set up except running 44" boggers instead of 39s. The ridiculous low gearing all these guys ; myself included, go for is on manual shift trucks. Comparing an auto with 4.7 tcase to a w56 with a 4.7 case is like comparing a boat to an atv. The auto has a torque converter that allows the engine to come up in rpm before the transmission will pull. Manual obviously does not, release clutch you are locked in and it goes. If you put a dual ultimate set up 2.28 front case, 4.7 rear case you will be turning the guts out of the engine. It will constantly be shifting out to 3rd gear unless you lock it down to 1st. Even in that case, locked in 1st at 3000 rpm your tires would still only be turning 2.98 mph. Save your money. Build a case with 4.7s. Put it in. If for some reason you are still not satisfied then blow the money for a doubler adapter and new driveshafts. Personally I believe you would be fine with just a 4.7.On the 23 or 21 spline debate. 23 spline is stronger. Always try to get 23 spline.
Get yourself a cheap tachometer from the auto parts house. I'd bet it has a real loose converter meant more for racing than slow speed.
Did you order a 4.7 set with 21 or 23 spline? If you got 23 did you get a new coupling adapter from whoever made your current adapter?
How this works is essentially two separate cases. The crawl box is the front case. All it will have is high, neutral, and low. The rear is the normal transfer case that you are about to put 4.7 gears in. As for the 21 spline lasting, I have never broken one. My mud truck only plays in mud. I have a rig with duals and a manual trans for crawling. I wouldnt attempt to do a 21 in a dual set up. But I ran single 4.7 21 spline set up on 39.5 iroks for a few years with no issues.
