transfer case in the 4.0 swap..

interesting situation i think...

the np231 with the 23 spline was in my yj with the 2.5. i dont know why it was but it is.. i thought they are always the 21 in the 4 cylinders..but anyway..

i got an aw4 out of a cherokee and the input shaft on the transfercase is too long and it bottoms out in the tranny when you try to mate them. i dont know why this is happening, as i thought they were all the same.

i think im going to try and cut the dam thing. what could possible happen bad? if i take the time to cut it neatly and file the edges, the bolt patter on the housing lines up and the splines mesh perfectly....


input?

either this solution or get a custom "adapter spacer plate" made from some high end billet aluminum, which i am quite sure this would be expensive...

i was going to just cut mine down, but then a friend brought up a good point. if it isnt cut perfectly straight, it will be out of balance and that could lead to some bad vibrating..
