SYE with the NV 242 Transfer case.

Can the RE SYE be used with the NV 242 TC. I will more than likely be ordering a custom drive shaft instead of the popular smaller front drive shaft conversion.

Help?

With a 242 you are pretty much limited to the Hack and Tap. It has worked great for me so far.

The RE 1807 adaptor is intended just for your set-up. Your later nv/np242 has the internal oil seal so it is a really easy install. Why don't you want to use a front driveshaft for the back?

Provided you have the auto tranny the length is spot on for your intended lift, it is miles cheaper than a custom job and I have NEVER heard of one breaking in this application.

You also get some bolts, a washer, drill bit, and a tap.

It's my understanding that both those kits are nothing more than a hack-n-tap kit that they've already hacked and tapped for you?

Just wondering, but what are the steps to a front drive shaft conversion? I know you need an SYE, and a front drive shaft, but do you need to do anything other than lengthen the front shaft?

Im not sure on the currie kit since ive yet to inquire about it bc i dont have the money for it yet

the TW kit's mainshaft is machined down so you dont have that lip left when you HnT- and yea its a modified stock shaft. the 242 shaft though is stronger than the stock 231 IIRC, and has a 32 spline front output.

You shouldn't have to have the shaft lengthened, that's part of the whole point in using a used front driveshaft vs buying a new one.

As far as what else you need, it depends on if you do a hack-n-tap or a heavy-duty SYE. With a heavy-duty SYE, a front XJ shaft just bolts right up to it. With the hack-n-tap you've got to get an adapter flange (read link I posted above) and rebuild the double-cardan joint to replace the existing yoke adapter with the flange adapter.

I think I remember reading somewhere that the flange adapter was an OEM piece? does anyone have that information? what vehicles, years it was originally used on?

Thanks.

Its on a front shaft. A front shaft has 3 Ujoints. 2 at the Tcase, and one at the axle pinion/yoke. the 2 U joint configuration on one end of the shaft is called a double carden, somewhat like a CV(constant velocity) joint (but not really).
