Are you some kind of mechanical engineer? What you have done is amazing man!I wish I had the guts to do that, but for now I will live vicariously thru you!

Have you considered replacing that gear, how much can it cost? What in your opinion is the weakest link in there that is making so many replace the tc?

I'm with Christo on this, what is the weak link inside the transfer case? I am betting it is either the viscous coupling or the small gears between the coupling and the tranny input. I wonder what could be done to "upgrade" the transfer case to make it more bullet proof (for those wanting more power out of their cars). I'm sure with a bit of work, you could have some chrome moly gears made and possibly even cryo-treated. Sure, it won't be cheap, but would be lots of fun to have an X-type that people think is slower than their car and then get smoked by it.

Don't expect the VC to be the weak point. I'm an owner of several VW Vanagon Syncros, which use a VC to transfer power. While it can fail over time (two different modes of failure btw) it usually lasts a very long time. 20 or more years in some cases...Being a sealed unit, there is really hardly anything that can go wrong with it during it's service life.

In the VW world the VC failures can be...loss of power transfer (rare) or overly agressive transfer (a little more common, but still not particularly common). Overall it is a very simple mechansim that gives good long service life.

Lack of lubricating oil wouldn't affect the VC, but would damage the bearings.

This is my personal opinion from inspection of the cases I've changed. Case flex is the major contributor to t-case failure, then operator headspace, then lack of lubrication. 90% of the cases I've changed were catastrophic failures with nothing left to rebuild. These transfercases aren't built for high load power application, they are built to a cost effective level of performance for their intended use. It's abuse that kills them.

Bo hasn't been logged on since early January, he'll have to check his pic links next time he drops by.

Bo did pull his pics. You'd have to try to reach him elsewhere.

just a caution here, the pics from Steve are fine above, but the story that comes along on his blog is flawed... read with "internet eyes" all that is posted is not always true.

Technically, the description of how it works, and what the components do, is incorrect.

is there a reason i cant open the pictures? i fount chunks of metal on the plug magnet along with the metal shavings... no noise, drives fine.. 80,000 miles.. want to rebuild all gears and bearings hoping theres someone who has found parts and has done it and its cheaper then the $3000 new unit from jag. cant seem to think spending 1500 on a used one that will go any day anyway.

I'm guessing that would be the normal lean to drain half the fluid lean back to fill back the 1/4 of a quart that came out? I'm partial to amsoil myself but I just recently did the "half fluid change" to find the metal shavings and 2 pea sized chunks on the magnet. 80,000 miles. No noise at all but I'm not too happy about the chunks I feel like it will be going soon. I plan to drain and fill as much as I can and clean the magnet hopefully every weekend until the magnet is decently clean and the fluid that comes out is decent... Then I'll let it go for a few months and do it again... Hoping that this thing lasts me at least a few more years. Unless someone has a better way to either change the fluid or to take it apart and rebuild with fresh parts. Does anyone have a procedure to take and list of part numbers to rebuild the transfer case??
