    I am rebuilding my 241 transfer case and have seen many posts that say to change the chain when you rebuild your case. Is there a way to tell if it is worn because it looks ok and how far can you clock a transfer case before it starts hitting the floor of a stock balzer with no lift? The gear that drives the rear out put shaft and slides in and out of low and high range in the planetary is also showing wear on its teeth, is it ok if i left it or should i get a new one or is it possible to get a new one?
    Thanks for the help,
    Kyle

    When I rebuilt my 241, I had not a mark on my chain, but I'm convinced it was the cause of the failed range fork....I would say chain replacement is as crucial to a rebuild as bearing/seal kit... I got my parts from www.nationaldrivetrain.com (ship from Chi and Atl), and exploded view from www.motivegear.com (wholesale only) Total for bearing/seal, range fork, chain ran about $250 plus shipping...worth every nickel

    Haven't a clue about clocking a TC

    If the chain is burned and hard to roll, id replace it, otherwise, its prolly fine. Id put new inserts on the fork too.
