Perhaps this thread should be linked in the tech FAQ.
Thanks. I intend to put some pics in my first post of the actual plates in the t-case this week to show how it positions the mode fork sleeve.

Bummer. The plate slides in very easily. But you have to split open the case again to get it in there. Means labor and another tube of black RTV.

Hey Rik,

I have a couple pics of the plate installed in the transfer case in my SYE album. Feel free to use any of them if it will help.

Thanks. I did find one in there that helps to explain it a little.....

Notice the pin of the rear mode fork is in the valley of the true neutral plate (A). This is the dip in the plate that allows the main shaft gear selector fork to drop to the position to allow the selector ring (B) to drop down below the front output chain drive gear (C). You see in the pic at (D) the ring is just below the gear. This allows this gear to spin freely on the shaft.
Without the dip in the plate, the ring would sit higher and cause it to be connected to the gears below it, thus spinning with them because the rear drive shaft is spinning the main shaft and those gears are directly connected to the shaft. Gear (C) spins freely on the shaft.
The pin in the slot of the plate (not visible in this pic) has not changed. It still dosconnects the transmission from the transfer case.

Does that make sense?

Is there a way to obtain a 2LO option while in the t-case? I like the writeup and I'll definitely do it when I rebuild my NP231.

I can't see how you could do it.
The slot in the plate determines the position of the forward mode fork. The forward mode fork determines high or low, as well as neutral from the transmission (centered between the high and low in the planetary gears).

It could probably be engineered but not with a simple change of a plate.

Seems like it should be a sticky by now.

Here's a pic of the back of the t-case filler/drain holes........
The plug on the bottom of the t-case is NOT the drain, it's holding a spring and a pin.
