t-case swap

Switched out a t-case today and when installing the new one, I kept the input gear out to make installation easier. Now the the case is in, what is the trick to getting the input gear in and lined up? I can't seem to get everything meshed or something. I thought it would just slide in but since the gears are angle cut, it seams not to work.. Ideas?

if the trans is in neutral you should be able to spin the output.

yes, but it appeared that the 2 big gears in the t-case have to mesh with the input as you slide it in. IT was not cooperating. I got frustrated and had to walk away for a little..

How do you calculate the teeth number? I have a cross-drill one (in perfect order) up for sale. Just might do the trick! I mean just as long as you're looking for the input gear! I think I have something like 38 teeth on it.. 26 must be a weak in put gear!

just count the outer teeth on the gear... THis is the gear that connects the trans output to the t-case input just to let you know.. I believe there are 26,28 and 32 tooth gears..

No.. 1.2 t-cases are 28 tooth. 1.4's like in tdi's and 110's have the 26 tooth.

I got the gear, the seals, and new bearings from Britcar. It cost about $160 with three day shipping from the UK.

Ashcroft is about the same price too.

Did the gear this afternoon Thanks everyone for the help especially JPRO576 for telling me to do it in the first place. I had to only call him once during the install HA. Anyway the splines on the original gear were completely gone but thankfully the input shaft looks perfect. Of course I notice no difference in driving but I am one anal mofo. I still feel the drivetrain is sloppy and clunky but I am comparing it to the 90.

This was a good fix for sure though. I imagine I was pretty close to the truck not moving if I didn't make the change.

I HIGHLY recomend Duncan @ Britcar. I have been buying from him for about a year and a half now.
He's quick and prices are right. When I have a UK dealer only item I always got to him. He's quick to respond to emails (even on Sundays in my case) and I like the simplicty and function of his website. He ships by DHL and takes paypal- very smooth easy way to buy parts from the UK.

Duncan rocks. He has helped with so much over the last year for me too.

Drove truck today. Shifts great. Fixed my issue after all. Only thing is when I take my foot off gas I am convinced the transfer case whines.

Not sure what to think

Turn up the radio. OR, did you check preload when you installed the new gear?
