    Need Help: 97 4.0 control trac transfer case

    Mission Accomplished: 96 BW4405 CA --> 97 BW4405 GA Mission accomplished! Swapped BW4405 CA into 1997 that previously had the 4405 GA. The CA has a different front driveshaft hookup. GA uses a ball / socket style whereas the CA is straight bolt up. Therefore there are two choices...

    Trick for getting at top bolt on 4405???

    I'm in the midst of removing the BG 4405 transfer case on my 97 4.0l. I'm using the shop manual as a guide, and it says to use a long extension to remove the bolts... I can't figure out how to get at the bolt on the top. I've tried all sorts of wobblers and long extensions but can't get on it...

    Need Help: 97 4.0 control trac transfer case

    I picked up the recently rebuilt 1996 BW 4405 5CA to replace the 4405 7GA that was in my 1997. Also have the front driveshaft from the 1996 to swap into the 1997. Are the shift motors identical on these two units? No need to swap the shift motor from the 1997 into the 1996? Will the GEM in...

    Need Help: 97 4.0 control trac transfer case

    The two years had different settings on the dash, although I don't know all the inner workings of it. '97-'01 switch says, 4auto, 4high, 4low '95-'96 Switch says, 2WD, 4auto, 4 low Are the shift motors the same for both, but controlled differently by a module in the truck? Perhaps I...

    Need Help: 97 4.0 control trac transfer case

    Thanks Joe. I'm going to pick up the 96 case and the front driveshaft. Will swap the 97 shift motor into the 96, swap the 96 driveshaft into the 97 x and hope for the best. Wish me luck! If anyone else has any words of wisdom, advice, or other parts I should be on the look out for let...

    Need Help: 97 4.0 control trac transfer case

    I know I'm getting on your nerves now. I can't take two TC's and made one, as my case is physically cracked. Can someone please confirm the following: 1. The 1997 4405 has the speed sensor in the Transfer Case. 2. The 1996 4405 has the speed sensor in the Transfer Case. 3. To use the 1996...

    Need Help: 97 4.0 control trac transfer case

    Ok, thanks for clarifying which one I need for a direct 1997 swap. Where on the transfer case would I find the model number with the GA designation? Is the tag you've pictured attached to the tc? In the event I cannot locate the GA... what are my options for swaps from other years? I...

    Need Help: 97 4.0 control trac transfer case

    Posted in the 95-01 section, but not much in the way of responses - sorry for cross posting. My x has been off the road for 60 days and I need it back. Having trouble figuring out course of action. My 97 transfer case is shot, internals broken and case cracked. I'm confused on what to get...

    Help: Will transfer case from 96 4.0 work in 97 4.0?

    I've also just discovered that there is a 98/97 hybrid that can be done, involving swapping 1/2 the casing from the 97 unit onto the 98 unit. This is because the speed sensor in the 97 is located on the transfer case, and in the later years it is located in the rear of the vehicle. If the...

    Help: Will transfer case from 96 4.0 work in 97 4.0?

    total newb here. I've searched but cannot find a clear answer to my dilemma. I have a 97 4.0 control trac with the electronic 4wd control on dash. Transfer case is shot and needs to be replaced - the case is cracked and guts broken. I have a line on a rebuilt unit from a 96 4.0, also with...

    T-Case - will 99 4.0l fit 97 4.0l???

    By the way, the link below gives the description of what happened. My mechanic friend confirmed it was indeed the transfer case as you had suspected. http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=186379 What are my options in terms of compatible units that can bolt in without...

    T-Case - will 99 4.0l fit 97 4.0l???

    Thanks for the quick reply. If I'm reading correctly, the unit will bolt in and function. The truck needs a speed sensor input, which the 99 unit doesn't have. If I swapped both the differential and the transfer case from the 99 into the 97, would that work? Then connect the speed...

    T-Case - will 99 4.0l fit 97 4.0l???

    97 4.0 Noob ... need help with diagnosis

    I have a 97 automatic 4 door 4.0 AWD On a recent highway trip, while disengaging from cruise control (not touching brakes), I heard a rasping noise from the driveline. Not grinding, but more like something spinning fast that wasn't quite engaged. Imagine the sound made when you run the shaft...

    Are 4R44E and 5R55E Interchangeable?

    Thanks for the information. I'm assuming then that a swap is possible with the exhange of those parts from one tranny to the other?
