SYE Install

Installing a JB Conversions super short shaft kit, and have two questions...

I have hit the tailhousing with a BFH so much I don't think there is any more mud plastered to the bottom of my rig...Is their a better way to get this piece off without doing damage to the transfer case housing itself?

I have taken the snapring off...severely bending it...hopefully I won't have to reuse it? (I don't have the SYE kit in my hands yet...hopefully it's not backordered)


Just a quick question as a side note too, I've been thinking about fabbing my own flat t case skid, will this require more than a 1 inch body/mml? Thanks

Did some research, I guess I need a bigger hammer than the already big one I am using...is there anything to breakdown the gasket (solvent or anything) to make it easier?

I don't remember if it's there on the tailhousing too or just the two main halves of the TC, but on the right side of it where the housing meets the TC there might be a little slot where you can stick a big screwdriver or prybar in there to pop it off. That might just be the one for the two big halves of the TC I'm thinking of.

There are no indentations on this part...I spent another hour or so on it today, and cannot pry it off. I think I need to invest in a big prybar, but am afraid I will damage the tcase in the process...Am I missing something...I took off the 5 bolts, both the bearing retainer clip (not necessary, but can't hurt at this point), clip on the output shaft, and both driveshafts, of course. I have lots of time, but am really at my wits end, it won't budge...I really feel stupid... I bought a huge hammer, and only succeeded at breaking free all the mud caked underneath!

Will a BF prybar help here (without damaging the t case), or is something holding this thing in place? I would take pics, but my digital camera is MIA.

well the kit does come with new snap rings so you are ok there. i dont know how many bolts hold the tail cone in place but i think you need to take the speedo sensor out all the way. you can also check out these instructions if you havent already.http://www.jbconversions.com/pages/p...t_sye_ins.html

good luck and you should love this kit it is very nice!!!!
