Tin ID tag on transfer case

What does it tell me? #'s are 300596-130 5359089

It is mounted behind a 3 speed and 258. The TC is too crusted in crud to get any casting #'s from.

or we could just tell you that it is a 300 (hence the first numbers) you have a 2.56:1 low gear (unless modified), and since it is from an 82 it is the easier to find speedo geared long tail shaft. Everything else i believe is irrevellant.

I thought 3sp's had the Dana 20 behind them (assuming it is a manual and not an auto).

It is a 3 speed manual. And that is what I have been told, that a 3 speed manual should be attached to a dana 20. I would really like to get a clear idea of what I have to work with. I'm a big guy (6'5" 370 lbs) and it is a nightmare trying to get up into look for case #'s with everything covered in grime and that dasterdly huge skid plate in the way.

I am pretty sure the tub is an 82, chassis not so much as it has NT axles. I bought it on a repo auction so getting info from PO is out.

Dana 300 was never used behind a 3 speed. If you can post pics that would be a big help. Behind a 3 speed if a centered rear output most likely a 20 unless the transmission is from a '71 or older CJ in which case it would be an 18 with an offset to the passenger side rear output. By the way, Dana 300's had a 2.62-1 low range.

Yes both my Dana 300 and Dana 20 both had the tag that starts with 300. Confusing. Fastest way to tell is the mount or oil pan on the t-case. The 330 has a flat pan and round mount to tranny and the 20 has a deep pan and a "Texas" shaped mount to the tranny.

I was figuring since he posted it as an 82 someone had mated a 176 to a 300...but the tub swap and narrow axles... well as paul harvey says, now you know the rest of the story.

sorry for the mis-info!

Another easy way to tell a 20 from a 300 is with a magnet.

The rear output cone/housing on a Dana 20 is cast steel and a magnet will stick to it. The Dana 300 rear output housing is aluminum and a magnet will not stick to it.

Grime removal will be required, but at least it's minimal.

Pictures' worth a thousand words.

With it being a repo, later model tub on NT axles, no real telling what it is other than assumption. My assumption is that it's a Dana 20.
