i have finsished installing the AA sye kit along with a cv ds on my np231 t case
the original gear selecton patteren was 2H 4H N 4L
now the shift pattern starts 4wd then 2h
any ideas on what i did wrong???
did you take your TC out when you installed the SYE?

most likely its due to a poor adjustment to your linkage which can easily be corrected.

x2. If that doesn't work, You'll also want to make sure that your shifting fork was seated properly when you changed out the output shaft. I've never had a problem with these moving on me during re-assembly, but it's what controls the 2wd and 4wd engagement so it's a thought. Unfortunately that means disassembling the entire thing all over again

Oh and did it cross anyone else who took apart their transfercase that the ring that engages the 4wd (locks the output shaft in place with the chain sprocket) was a little chinsey... all that power pulling on those tiny little splines... amazing. I've never read about it failing, but it just amazes me that that little piece is what is sending all that power to the front axle.
Just my 2 cents though

i figured this would be a good place to post this question. I have a 1990 XJ with a 231 transfer case and i was wondering in order to install a sye kit do i need to remove my transfer case or can i do it while in my jeep?

Kyle, perhaps I missed it, but I do not see any reference to Tom Woods on your "sources" page. If you don't care to install your own 242 H&T TW is a great option to have it professionally installed. Here's the URL:

Did you measure the length and trim your selector shaft as detailed in the AA instructions?

you can do it either way but many people like to take it out just to make sure everything went in properly because they can see whats going on a lot better then when its in the vehical.

Nope, just the shaft. They install their SYE and send it back. :-)

I installed the sye out of vehicle i will check the adjustment and see if that does the trick.

If not then the next step may be to open up the case again.

The selector shaft was just under one inch .

Thanks for all the help!!! :

Newbie question here. I read the Sticky Threads but have a little confusion.

I have a 1998 with the 242 TC and Dana 35. I am installing a RE H&T. I will use a junkyard front driveshaft in the rear. Do I need the Spicer 211229x to mate the driveshaft to the TC?

yes if your using a HnT with the front DS then you will need the spicer flange.

i guess thats a pretty good idea, but i would probably get a new shaft and send them the new one because it will put your XJ out of comission in the mean time.

Ha ha--that's exactly what I did. I sent them the shaft out of my spare 242 and kept on driving :-) Oh, you can also NOT send them a shaft but there is a rather large (IIRC, around $400) core charge, which you get back once you swap the shafts and return your stock one to them.

do you have a price as to how much it ended up running you to have them install it?
