What's the easiest way to check the chain? Is it possible to do it with the tcase in? Or would it be easier to go ahead and take it out?

If you know what a loose one feels like you can check it through the drain and re-fill holes. You can replace or inspect the chain with the T-Case under the Jeep, but you will have to split the case like you would for an SYE install.


Loose and new.

Okay awesome, I'll try checking it through the drain and refill holes first. Next week I'll start by splitting the case open to see what I can see, then I'll go from there. Thanks! I'll report back with whatever I find out

Broke down the 249

Okay, I pulled my 249 and pulled it all apart. All of the gears check out fine, no cracks or chips anywhere. The chain did seam VERY loose, I assume some of the looseness can be expected with the case apart.



I've been pricing new chains and the cheapest i found is around $100. I also found a 231 a few hours away that the guy only wants $100 for! So I think I'm gonna make a drive next week to pick it up.



The 231 is from a 2000 xj, I'm pretty sure I have the new gear cut on the input shaft so I should be able to swap it in. So in theory this solves my popping problem, if it's still there after I replace the case then I'll be back...

Off topic, but here's a pic of the input shaft from my 249, if anyone see's this, does this look like the new cut or old?
