question about what tranny and transfer case i have

I aquired a 1978 cj7 that had a 258 inline 6 that was taken out by the po. Its an automatic and has fulltime 4wd with a knob in the glove box to lock something with the 4wd. It doesnt have locking hubs. Could anyone tell me what tranny and transfer case this is equipped with?

A TH400 3 speed transmission, and a Borg Warner 1305 (1339 if you have low range) or simply called a Quadratrac, transfer case.
It's the same setup as I have.

The biggest negative with them is the the chain eventually stretches and needs replaced.
The good Morse chains are just about impossible to find, and will cost close to $400. (I do know of a place that has a few in stock for $375)
You can get a Chineese made chain, but the quality just isn't there. I had one stretch and become unusable after 4 hours. They are about $200.

Over all it pretty tough and will last if maintained, the biggest is running the proper oil. I trash mine fairly hard and other than replacing the chain (with 96,000 miles) it has taken everything in stride.


Here's some good reading on the Quadratrac.

Here's the oil that goes in it. Anything else can ruin it.

Both TH400 an QT are real tough when maintained check oil once a year and replace TLC1 when you hear no ratteling keep chain unbothered, you can check chain for strech...you've got a real Jeep here..permanent 4by4!!
