Mile Marker conversion?
It is time to re-build my quadratrac transfere case and I am wondering if anyone has advice on whether the two wheel drive option is worth the effort. I also have the low range option. There is a nice klunk when I put it in gear and from what I've read, the chain and maybe a shaft should be replaced. I'm looking at the Mile Marker conversion/ re-build kit. Is there significant gas mileage improvement when switched to two wheel?
Not a significant gain in mileage with the part-time kit but you also have a little less wear and tear on the front axle components. DO NOT get the 16% overdrive option with the part-time kit. It can really make a rig sluggish an effectively lowers a rigs crawl ratio. It sounds as if your current QT has a bad chain. You can drain the fluid and open the inspection plug on the bottom of the case and use a screwdriver to see how much play is in the chain. If it's over 3/4", time for a new chain. Hopefully, you won't need a new low range mainshaft. These are not available anymore, even with a part-time kit. Most of the time the clunks are sign of a stretched chain.
