Help...............I am no longer the preverbial "virgin" to the K5 world. My transfer case was in need of a rebuild, and from the posts and manual it seemed pretty straight forward. All was well until it came time to replace the bearings....the bearing on the rear shaft on the front side of the case, it is the blind bearing that you need to pull out with a slide hammer according to the book. Tried it for 2 hours and no dice last night, I gotta get it back together and in tonight, otherwise it is the "Nike Express" to work tomorrow. I figure you guy's could help, with your vast knowledge! I am about ready to take it out in pieces, any suggestions would be a great help. Also there is a comany called Trans Star Industiries here in TX and they sell the rebuild kit with all bearings and seals for $93, and a th350 shift kit for $14, if you want a rock hard shift kit its $35. They ship everywhere, if anyones interested let me know and I'll pass along the numbers. <*)))>< 81" GMC Jimmy.............stock for now!
