    SCORE @ the junkyard!!!

    Man, I am SO STOKED!!! I just need to get a new bearing for my output shaft and then I can start reassembly! :D I swear this thing was just rebuilt less than 10k miles ago! Last week, I was quoted $700 for a unit with 170k miles on it and $850 for one with 100k miles on it... :D :D :D :D...

    SCORE @ the junkyard!!!

    No, this isn't a pathetic plot for a porno. I got a BW 4405 @ the junkyard today for $125... :cool: Walking around the first place didn't get us much. My buddy got a spare tire crank that he was looking for $20. Second place had a LOT more Explorers in it. Was looking under a buch of the...

    Exploder Transfer Case

    This post seriously made me laugh my azz off! I could hardly believe it myself when I pulled the cases apart. :eek: Actually, yes, it would still roll under its own power and didn't make a sound. In fact, I drove it around the block and engaged and disengaged the xfer case... :D Well, the...

    FORD SUCKS. how do i make my differential cheaper

    Not a recall since it doesn't affect life safety. There is a TSB about it, which is in the link that Danny posted. :D

    Exploder Transfer Case

    Thanks, Don. It's going to be interesting for sure. I'm in the process of buying my replacement parts now. Oh and I still need to get the bearing (and the pump) removed from the output shaft and the planetary tore down...

    Exploder Transfer Case

    Here's another pic. Can anyone tell me what this is next to the arrow in the picture? It looks like a spacer from the clutch pack. It's broken and needs replacement.

    Exploder Transfer Case

    It should easily outlast the transmission, which is usually good for about 120-150k miles with moderate driving. The key is to be meticulous about your maintenance (changing the fluids and filters).

    Exploder Transfer Case

    Actually it isn't warped, it's just not sitting flush from when I pulled the case apart. In the top pic, you might be able to see that the tabs have been busted off of it. There is quite a bit of damage...

    Exploder Transfer Case

    I'm not doing this because I'm expecting to get the money back out of the truck or because I need it back on the road right away... This is a fun project for me to do. Oh and everything as far as removal and disassembly has been done using "standard" hand tools... :D

    Yeah, that electromagnet looks like it exploded copper windings everywhere.

    Exploder Transfer Case

    Many of you know that I have an Explorer that has seen better days, due in large part to letting my teenage daughter drive it. At any rate, shortly after she torched the transmission, the transfer case decided it didn't want any of her abuse either. It has been sitting in the driveway for a...

    Truckhaven! October 25th-26th

    Thanks, Colin. I couldn't bear to do that to "the sweet unit" and trust me, Danny's been pressuring me to do something with the Exploder. He started out with "How about a shackle lift and 33's?" :eek:
