dana 300 flipped is a very nice set up but as i found out it wont work with a turbo 350 trans front out put hits trans pan ,,,,,, i saw this cable shifter mount set up on line .. ii was going to do this may be it will help
Ok. So I refuse to do the write up until I'm satisfied with the transfercase. However the flip kit spacer that is also your new mount fir the shift rods is aluminum. The case and lid are steel. No matter how many times and what variance I take.... It will not stay sealed for more than two weeks. I believe this is a combination of two things. 1. The expansion rates are different so with time it creates a gap in between the case/spacer/lid. 2. The transfer case is clocked downward. The lid or inspection cover (whatever you like to call it) had a drain hole that per down east offroad's instruction is drilled and tapped. This allows for a new vent. The vent is on the low side. The oil sling is on the low side. I believe the oil is actually clogging the vent tube. I actually get oil out of the vent tube from time to time. So when this happens I think it's pressurizing the case an blowing the seal. I am making a new lid out of .250 2024 aluminum and tapping a new hole in the top of the case. Does this sound reasonable or am I way off base?
A couple of people on here are running 231/300 doublers. Remko on the build section is (only one I can remember) and I plan on it in the next year or so. It is not that the 231 is a weak transfer case ( I mean, they were installed in every tj and most xjs and how many are still running today), it is the 231's alminum case that is prone to breaking or cracking. The 300 is gear driven which makes it stronger than the chain driven 231, but that just means the chain is the weak link.
