but still, the rod is the best way to do so, ill see if i can find a 3/16 rod around or similarIt's 3/16". Ive done the mod before, used scrap rod. I can weld it for you if it works better but with the way things have been lately I can't garantee anything on turnaround. Alternatively you can use a thick piece of plastic bent into a U shape in the channel to cushion it and delay issues, Steve83 did that on his but I'm not sure if anyone else has.
you mean like take abit of the sheet metal and bend it up? so it has more surface area?If you use that np208 you don’t have to do the pump arm mod, those don’t have one.
But if you are rebuilding a BorgWarner case and you do get that welded, it is really important to keep it clean inside that case. One slag booger floating around in there could really screw up your day if it gets into the wrong place, ask me how I know....
Another option is the just bend the pump arm a little, then it has to wear against a different spot and will take 100k+ miles before you have to worry about it being an issue again
Just bend an angle so it touches the case in a new spot. That sheet metal arm touches the aluminum transfer case housing and eventually wears through it, you just bend the sheet metal to touch a new spot. It won’t change the surface area and it will still wear eventually, but you are wearing against a new spot so it has to start from zero again basically, so it will take a long time to get another wear spot at the new place it touches after you bend ityou mean like take abit of the sheet metal and bend it up? so it has more surface area?
i got the transfer! i got it from another guy cause the other one couldnt come :/ this one was like 20$ more like 120 but says the motor works, i have to change the rear flange and take the mechanical speedo from the transfer, but everything else looks pretty much spot onLooks like 3/16" from a couple threads
all i can see is theres a sensor ish looking thing on one of the plates on the outside going in, maybe it wont until it senses it or passes through the sensor?Can't help you with why it won't lock into 4-high, but the inside of that case looks to be in pretty good shape..even the chain..that slop you're seeing will be somewhat taken up when the other half of the case in on. Nothing to worry about in my mind..
