Got your email.

I was just looking at the picture of the case apart on page 2...

I can see the snap ring in question there on the paper-towels.

It looks like you've taken off the rear case, and removed the oil pump assembly.

So unless you'd also begun removing the front bearing retainer, it should be part of the rear assembly.

From the FSM I can see that there is a rear bearing snap ring that goes around the rear main shaft that holds the rear extension housing in place.

Maybe it's that.

Otherwise it's part of the oil pump assembly or what holds that to the rear case as part of a unit.

Yea I think its in the rear housing that I put it. Unfortunately, I just installed a new seal there. Hopefully I can pull it out and hammer it back in? It was like a $10 seal.

I got that snap ring in and could re-use the seal. T-case is done other than some bolts being in the wrong holes. Will pulling them out and re-arranging have any affect on the RTV?

Nevermind, I just tightened them all down. They're all pretty generic. So I guess t-case is done, cleaning most of the gunk off now. Paint tomorrow. Skid is done. I'll get some pics tomorrow.

Well canon software is being a twat. And my internet keeps crashing. So pics will have to wait. It rained a lot today, so the t-case is still waiting to be painted. I also need new front tires. I'm going to pick up a set of 3 bfg's with decent tread. Then my parents will be off my back.. plus i'll have a full-size spare. Calling the mech tomorrow to see if he can swap tcase and install nutserts.

Are you having problems with swapping the t/c yourself?

We've already discussed pulling the old one...

As for putting in the new, I put it on an old blanket and dragged it into position under the jeep. Then I started piling blocks under it (I was doing it by myself). I just kept adding a row of blocks under it, until it was the right height and then lined up the bolts to the transmission mount and pushed it in.
Took about an hour.

I actually RTVd the transmission mount and t/c.

Should go easier for you if you can get your buddy to help.

Sort of. Removing the bolts is becoming a problem, my step-dad helped me get one more off, 3 to go and they're so hard to reach. I'll try again when it dries up. Would rather save the headache and have the mech do it for cheap. If he does do it for cheap.

Just watched a video on an SYE install as I was trying to get tips on pulling the t-case. And well.. I sorta ****ted myself because I think I installed the one snap ring in the wrong place. Think I might email Advance Adapters.

It's all about having the right tools. Those nuts that hold the t-case on are a piece of cake with a ratcheting wrench with a swivel head. You could probably buy a good, full set for what you'll pay the mechanic. As for the nutserts, you're doing something wrong if they're that tough. Getting old ones out is a bigger pain than putting new ones in. Grinding the heads off the old ones is the wrong way to get them out.

I agree...

The nuts & nutserts are harder to get off, but not that hard to access...
except for the top passenger side...

As for the snap ring... which one are you referring to, and where did you put it as opposed to where should it have gone?

Try seeing if you can engage all gears manually, and if the appropriate outputs spin freely.

Of course... better to take apart and be free of mind, rather than having it weighing on you everytime you get in the jeep.

Otherwise, looks good.

I was waiting for the day you'd post in my build thread Hopefully its dry enough tomorrow that I can get under and try with a borrowed ratcheting wrench. There's one hiding behind the shifter linkage bracket. How do I remove this? As for the nutserts, I only cut one off and the rest my mech and I took care of. Still clueless on the install problem... Can you enlighten me on how using an impact gun won't turn the wrench holding the nut?

Its one of the two that goes in the tailshaft housing. I thought only the one went in there. Turns out both go in to secure and center the bearing inside. And thanks!

Here's a pic of where I think I misplaced it:
