Getting ready to do clutch. Xfer case connected?

I'm getting ready to do the clutch on my truck. Is it better to take the transfer case off separately or with the tranny?

What oil goes in the transfer case and how much?

What oil goes in my ZF-6 and how much?

Any special tools or procedures?

I've never done a clutch before but have had plenty of trannies out but never on a diesel truck.

Thanks in advance for all the help

Rob

the only special tool would be the clutch alignment tool but they usually come with a new clutch, If you have 2 floor jacks it is very easy to remove the trans with the transfercase still atached I have done it this way a dosen times by myselfe but be carefull, I always put one jack under the drain plug of the trans and the other I put under the lowest part on the transfercase. both the trans and transfercase use automatic transmission fluid I use cenex auto gold. The filling capacitys should be in you owners manual, if you loose very much oil out of your trans cooling lines make shure you add that much extra when you refill the trans.

JTA,

Thanks for the tips. Hopefully this next weekend I'll get a chance to do it. I couldn't believe the labor charge was going to cost more than the parts! What clutch did you go with? I got the South Bend Con-O.

I was thinking the same thing but the guy in Enumclaw (southbend dealer) said I'd be fine with my mods and it would be better for towing than the ofe due to grabbiness. I was happy to hear that because it saved me $300!

I just remimberd a couple of tips that might make the job easyer, befor removing the transmission put it in a low gear so on reinstallation if the inputshaft dosent lighn up with the clutch you can just turn the outputshaft to alighn it, also if you have trouble getting the trans to lighn back up on install get a couple of long bolts that will thread into the trans to engine mounting holes and cut the head off the bolt then use a hacksaw and cut a slot in the top of the shaft of the bolt where the head was so that you can use a screwdriver to turn the headless bolt also tapper the bolt where the head was, you use these as guides for the transmission, you may not need the guides it's just what I do if I have trouble getting the trans back in.
