Anybody have any ideas?
Under Transfer Case
NP 231 or 241. I think.
What's got me curious is the possible drivers side drop and the lack of a Slip yoke...
Maybe a Borg Warner case? The rear half of the case is quite different from a 241, and there are no cast fins on the case pictured. The yoke style front output is also odd (241 has a flange front output)
Wait a minute, am I looking at that thing upside down?
Maybe it's a Hummer case? ANYONE???
Looks like something off of Tinman out of the wizard of OZ,....someone had fun with the spray paint! /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif
It might be a Dodge NP208. Passenger side drop and fixed yoke.
Now you see my quandry. I'd like to get a better look at the thing, but it's a few miles (150) away from me right now.
Kyle, is that 150 mile north or south of you? If it's down near me, I would be more than happy to take a look at it.
I'm inclined to agree with Neil...Dodge 208 maybe/forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif
What does the seller claim it is?
It looks like a 231 I was looking at yesterday, but I didn't think about the slip yoke...I'll have to fall in line with the Dodge 208.
In the extreme right picture you can see almost hidden behind the yoke a nipple for a hose. There should be two of them. Based on this and the extra case volume just forward of the rear output casting I'm gonna say this is a NP 261. That makes it a HMMV case. The hose nipples are for the t/c cooler.
I just went and looked at the 261 lying on my sideyard and it is the same.
It's a Tinker AFB. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
That's what leaves me thinking Hummer or 208.
Plus, it's classified as DEMIL, which halfway narrows it down to Hummer. If it IS a 208, it could be a decent score for someone wanting to get rid of their Slip yoke...
Good info, that confirms more of what I was thinking.
Just out of curiosity, why do YOU have a 261? Something we should know about /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
Its not a Dodge 208... I have pics of it here:
The rear output section is quite long after the chain case, leading me to believe its a full-time unit. I think this is the same one I have a pic of here:
I think its a late Quadra-trac from a full-size Jeep.
you are looking at it upside down. you can see a drain plug at the top. it kinda looks like a borg-warner out of a ford.
I stand corrected... its the immediate follow-up to the Quadra-trac. Either a NP219, NP228, or NP229 - they all look similar. This is the NP229:
A friend is sort of in the biz of parting them out. Used to have a bunch of the HMMV wheels & both the 36" and 37" tires.
I got the t/c because I'm curious if the cooler stuff and the rear fixed yoke is adaptable to my 208. They are LH drop btw.
Thanks for the help. Guess I'll pass on this one.
BTW, if anyone needs it, bids open at $35 /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
