    i have a 1997 AWD mercury mountaineer...the transfer case is broken...should i take it to the shop and have them rebuild it for 1000 dollars or can i find a used one for cheaper than that and put it in myself...also will a 1991-1994 ford explorer manual t-case fit in my 1997 mountaineer?and how hard would it be to change from a awd to a manual t-case?

    It will be considerably cheaper for you to change it out with another used one. I'd post something in the Wanted thread on this and other forums...

    Also - browse eBay - they get some stuff like that once in a while.

    I can't tell you if a manual t-case bolts up to your setup - it may fit physically, but I'm not sure what that would do to the computer. Everything is wired together on the newer models... I've got a 97 control trak version - and it is a pain computer wise - but changing out a t-case is no big deal...

    I don't think that the manual t-case will even bolt up on yours since you have the V8 AWD while the 91-94 only had a V6 and 4WD, so they both have completely different transmissions. Like glfredrick said, post in wanted sections and also there are usually a few people on here that part out their trucks so maybe someone would have a t-case for AWD. Good luck

    Transfer Case

    So far the $1000 sounds good to me. Mine is going out but still drivable and every where has told me at least $1400! :mad::(
