Whats the purpose of having a divorced T-case? to help drivline angles?
Helps driveline angles. Also can change front and rear driveshaft lenths. Could make them the same if you like-only have to carry one spare.
i don't know.
i DO know that i spent about an hour at shiloh saturday watching my buddy fixing the halfshaft that connects the two after it spit a u-joint on his M715...........
thats exactally why i was wondering whats the purpose, I see another thing to break, but i guess i could use some better drive line angles though
THE BIG ANSER........................................................................
You only need to make one type of tranny (tailshaft)
It's kinda like the new 2WD 1/2 ton Chevy they went with a 6 lug wheel pattern so the can use the same rearend in both the 2 and 4WD. Cut's a lot of cost.
Try fixing a splined coupler or input or output shaft in an hour.
that would be a good point IF either of those ever broke /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
It forces the transfer case to still get torqued on by the transmission and still perform all of the same responsibilities, but now without any money and without ever getting to be "mated" with the transmission and the transfer case now only gets to see the offspring of the transmission and transfer case on the weekends /forums/images/icons/smile.gif.
