transfer case info needed and have noises
If swapping a transfer case from another truck what has to match? Whats the ratio mean? Does it have to stay the same? I know diff ratios must match. I have 410's. I have no electric shift, would my manual shift bolt to the electric shift location?
I know sometimes when engaging 4wd it may slightly clunk when putting it in 4wd. Maybe its not supposed to but thats never bothered me. I have been chasing a clunk and feel I have it narrowed down. I moved the truck around the other day with the rear drive shaft removed(different reason) Its too heavy to push, so i engaged 4wd high and used the front diff to turn it around. When putting it in reverse I get a loud clunk. Going in drive was ok.
Since then i have finished my rear end install and rear driveshaft. I am getting a clunk from reverse to drive now. I am back in 2wd. At first I was thinking rear diff issue. But I am fairly convinced its a tail shaft noise.
Any way to confirm its a transfer case?
how interchangable are the transfer cases? dont want one I cant use.
