    In the middle of dropping the T-case on the 90 jimmy, 700 R4 and 241. Need to know if it would be easier to disconnect it from the adapter rather than having to prop the tranny adn take it out with the adaptor still attached.
    CAn any one shed some light here? Thanks will be draining fluids adn disconnecting wires in the meantime!

    As I recall you have to take it off the adaptor to get to the bolts that hold the adaptor to the tranny.
    It may be aluminum housing but that booger still weighs about 90lb with fluid and no good way to hold it. My bud threw out his back hoisting his up into his truck. He was out of work for 3 weeks (fire fighter) I made a cradle that bolts onto my jack to aid in getting my REAL heavy 203's out. I use a peice of 3/4 inch think plywood and some scrap 2x4 and build a cradle that holds it fairly well. I use a 3/4 inch bolt with some big flat washers to bolt it to the jack after poping the saddle off. I leave it a little loose so I can tip it and rock it to allow me to get it in the right posisiton. Did the same with the tranny. I can pull and install my 203's by myself. Tranny jacks just don't seem to have enough adjustment to grab most odd shapped T-cases.

    It's not my damn planet monkey boy!

    Thats cool. I just need the T-case sitting on the floor so I can swap out the output shaft for the fixed yoke kit!
