Since I'm gonna have the motor out soon so I can replace it and the Bronco has 180,000 miles I figured I should probably rebuild the x-fer case. The trans was rebuilt a couple years ago and only has about 25,000 miles. I haven't had any problems with the 4wd, I just thought this would be a good idea.

What will I need to do to refresh this thing? I have all the tools (hand and air) that I would need unless there's any specialty tools then I will either buy or rent them. While I have the motor out I'm installing my axle pivot drop down brackets, all new tie rod ends and ball joints, Polyeurethene radius arm bushings and axle shafts/u-joints and replacing the auto hubs with Warn Premiums. So I should be pretty much set when I'm done with this. Any input is appreciated.

Well, your profile says you have a '90. This is relevant, try to include it in future questions.

To "refresh" the t-case, which will be a BW1356, you'll probably want a new oil pump and chain along with all bearings and seals. The oil pump and chain are optional, but I wouldn't bother going to the time if you're not gonna replace them. Figure $250 for all this. If your planetary has excessive play, that's another $250 or so.

Thanks for the info. I didn't include the year in the post because it's listed in my sig line. People are always telling others to fill out their sig line so they know what they have.

Keep in mind that you can get a rebuilt case with warranty for $750. So don't go nuts just to rebuild yours.

I'll post the website when I find it again. Came across one when I was searching on prices to rebuild my transmission.

I blocked sigs, pages load up faster on dial-up. Something to consider

Mine either, I upgraded a long time ago. Now it's got wireless fiberoptic coax. Nothin but the best for my truck that needs a new motor.
