Whats stronger, 241 or 208? Thanks /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif
IMO, I would say that they are both pretty equal.
241 is stronger because it uses 6 planets in the planetary unit and the 208 uses 4 planets.
2.72:1 low range (208 is 2.61:1); as in post above, 241 has a stronger 6 pinion carrier (208 has 4 pinion carrier) and 241 is supposed to have better oiling system.
241's you can also buy a SYE kit but not for the 208.
whats the SYE kit?
Is the 241 a direct bolt-in to a 700 that came mated to a 208?
241 Wins!...Better oiling system,able to get a fixed rear yoke and you can install 4:1 lo-range gears!!Mike
Yes, a 241 will bolt directly in where a 208 was.
Some guy's have made there own SYE kit for the 208. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif
Who makes 4 to 1 gears for a 241? I NEED TO KNOW THIS /forums/images/icons/grin.gif /forums/images/icons/grin.gif /forums/images/icons/grin.gif
Just make sure you get the 241 with the same speedo drive as your 208. Some 241's come with mechanical cable drives and others come with electric sending units.
