I put one of the global roamers ones on my D2 because of the under drive…installed the others for the bling factor
Like this idea of Robert's a lot. I am in if it can be designed to stop the typical oil leaks with better seals.We manufacture oil pans and have had castings leak. The true fix is sending them to a place to go through a vacuum resin seal process where the porosity is filled to stop the oil leaks. To seal the bolts, Lav could have an O-ring groove machined into the fancy T-case sump and use a flange bolt with O-ring to get a full seal. It could also be done via a groove on the bolt side which is more difficult, but easier to sustain.
I'm not sure I agree that the larger capacity helps overall lubrication, as the oil level remains the same (controlled by the height of the fill plug in the case), and the issue tends to be with that input shaft/gear being starved for lubrication..The larger capacity helps overall lubrication and disperses heat much better over the larger fluid volume.
Hey, no hard feelings here, I'm happy to agree to disagree, I'm not claiming to be an expert, just relating my thinking. And for the record, I mentioned in an earlier post that it is beautifully done, and I might want one just for that reason .I'm not sure I agree with Scott or Ed
In theory your opinion would be true if the vehicle were always on a flat plane.I'm not sure I agree that the larger capacity helps overall lubrication, as the oil level remains the same (controlled by the height of the fill plug in the case), and the issue tends to be with that input shaft/gear being starved for lubrication..
Ive never heard of it. Aside from the engine, the component that overheats the most is the transmission.My question. Has anyone had issues with the transfer case overheating?
