    Does anyone have an exploded view of an NP-241 and possibly any helpful directions on how to go about rebuilding one. I have a friend who needs to rebuild his and i will probably be helping him out and could use any good helpful info. I don't think it makes a difference but it is a 1990 Z-71 pick up. :thumb:

    Looks like some got out of order, so make sure you look at the page numbers. They are also numbered as 241 1 jpeg etc, so that should show up if you save them. Hope they help. :thumb:

    So very super easy, you need, metric sockets, not snap ring, but the other ring pliers, and black RTV, thats it, super duper easy, I used the write up on JB conversions to that helped, color pictures :D

    They are easy tcases, most of the aluminum ones are. Just curious, what went bad on it that it needed rebuilt?

    Greg, i'm sure your reply was supposed to be directed at me but anyways, he thinks it needs a chain and he came to my store and found out that we can get a complete rebuild kit for cheap so he ordered the kit and i will be helping him rebuild it. I would assume that a complete rebuild kit MAY come with directions of some kind or at least an exploded diagram.

    Oh, lol, I was gonna reccomend you check the chain. Was it run low on oil? You mean complete rebuild kit such as bearings and seals correct? The best way to get the old bearings out are to heat up the case (not with a torch, more liek a parts washer) and it also makes installation easier and wont cut into the aluminim. I would reccomend getting a set of snap ring pliers though.

    Greg, i'm a machinist remember. I have all the tools i would ever need including the parts washer. :D

    I know what you mean about using the parts washer to heat the parts in order to remove the bearings, since the aluminum will expand before the steel will and not leaving it in long enough to heat the steel the bearing will practically fall out. :thumb:

    Ok, wrong kind of machinist, i'm an AUTOMOTIVE machinist. I rebuild engines and such. You should just go buy a set from Mac as they aren't that expensive, i know becuase i bought a set myself. Try E-bay also for tools, i've gotten MANY good deals there on Mac and Snap-on tools.

    Yeah, ok I thought you were more on the automotive side or machining. Its more of the handle (or whatever you would call it) that I need made. We had a longer one custom made and its kinda beat. Thanks anyway. Let us know how the 241 goes.
