Need a Borg Warner T case expert...

I recently started getting vibrations and grinding noise while feathering the gas on my 92 RRC. I decided to replace the T case output shaft bearings as i noticed a little play. When i pulled out the rear bearing housing (after way too much effort) i end up with this.



Has anybody experienced this? How do i get the shaft out now...? What could possibly be holding it in there...?

Thank you for any help.

-Gabe.

Get a LT230. At least as a back up spare.

On the LT230 it pulls straigth out. How do i access the snap ring. I got the front dissasembled already. But i cant see anything that might be holding the rear...i have a hard time finding a complete LT230 with everything needed for the swap, so i havent considered it yet...

A rebuilt BW from Dave Ashcroft is about 1200 plus the shipping so roughly 1500 delivered. If your VC is anywhere near 75K miles, it might be time to consider a new one before that one goes bad. And it will go bad.

You bring up a good point here Bill. This repair doesn't seem like it's talked about often. Is the only way to know the VC has failed is no 4x4? I've seen this bad on a truck with 72k recently but ok on a truck with 160k.

So after looking closer at it, it looks like that snap ring is supposed to hold the output shaft in the output housing. Unbolting the 6 bolts on the output housing is all that should be needed to remove the whole assembly.

I removed the 6 bolts, the shaft staid behind and the only reason the housing came out is because the bearing was removed from the shaft.
