Dana 300 install tips HELP

Ok So I replaced the input oil shaft on the front of my d300 now im struggling to get it installed. Any tips or tools to put it in? lifting it seems kinda off the wall haha

Its way easier to pull it than put it back in

What is an input oil shaft? Here is a set of instructions on how to take a D300 apart and put it back together.

A helping hand can make all the difference....if you have some studs(threaded rod) available to thread into the tail
to use as guides ...then a floor jack to get it close...then shove it,curse it,pull it,kick it on.
good luck.

ive always rolled it onto my chest and bench pressed that sucker. takes a few tries cause that sucker is HEEEEEAVY!
there are tranny jacks that you can buy but they're pricey. or there are adapters for trannys and will hook up to a standard floor jack.

I used my neighbor's tranny jack to put my D300 back on my transmission.

I have a 2inch suspension and 1 inch body lift and I'm 5'10". I'm able to sit indian style-hunched over a little bit- and just put it on there.


In any event: the input shaft of the transfer case has a bore with internal splines. Start by sticking the bore over the output shaft of the transmission and then push it on to the 2 studs.

I take out the the left side upper pan bolt and I mounted a block of wood cut to fit the angle and bolted to the case through that bolt hole. then i just use my floor jack with a tie down around the case to hold it. Not the greatest way to do it but it worked for me coming out and going back in.

This is the kinda whiny crap I would expect to see in the JK forum. We drive rough riding, leaking, gas guzzling CJ's. Rattle can it and throw it in your Jeep.
