Transfer Case for T2

Recommended Posts

BigDogDaddy's post,

Has anyone figured out how to get a high/low range in the trooper T2.?? Looking at trying to install a transfer case out of a Sami..

I am putting this up for BigDogDaddy.

Without having my Trooper here to look at, the only thing I can envision would be some sort of divorced transfer case set up. It would have to be small & compact. It would most likely involve moving the motor around too. The problem is you have to transfer the output of the transmission into the transfercase then to the diffs. I think the design of our transmission takes up too much space because it a transmission/transfercase combo already. You'd be essentially adding a second transfer case. This has been done on rock crawlers, but only on very long wheel base ones (like pickups). It would be sweet if China came up with a selectable Hi/Lo transmission for ours.

I don't think I would attempt that one. There isn't much I can't do when it comes to modifying things but I would shy away from this one. If you put it in front of the transmisson, it would be centered about below the rear of the parking brake handle and then have to reach off to the drivers side to get front and rear drive shafts to the diffs. I think that would require some fairly major frame mods. Suspose you could kick the engine over to the right to help. If it was installed behind the transmission, there wouldn't be much room to run the rear drive shaft to the diff. It would have to be installed at as angle down from the trans using a CV joint then another CV joiint behind it at the diff. The rear drive shaft currently runs close enough to the oil pan that there may not be enough room to even work there. To do it correctly, it would require removal of nearly everything including the fire wall behind the drivers seat. In other words, stripped down to basically a frame with 2 diffs and an engine/trans combo in place with not much more then frame tubes to look at. Then start cutting and fitting. The more I talk about it here, the more I think it cold be done but for myself, it I were to go that far, I would rather start the entire vehicle from scratch using a different engine, driveline and better suspension geometry and end up with a far superior product when done. It could have a lot more power, low range for rock crawling, much better clearance, better handling, be faster in the trails and over the rough stuff, well, better in everything including parts and engine mod parts availability. Oh, and rather then rattle and shake, you would have something that would rock and roll.

It would be a lot of work.. The only place that it would work is between the seats.. Have to gut out most every thing there and raise the engine and trany.. All ready modified the suspension and now wish I would have started from scratch but it worked good to start with just need lower gears.. If there was some kind of two speed that would go between the engine and trany would be the best.. I talk to you at the get together in Farmington NM, and you were think about some planetary gear set for yours.. How is that going.??

Now I remember you. You laid your rig over on its side at the end of the day. You were already climbing crazy stuff. I am the guy who broke and was riding the dirtbike the day it rained on us.

Welcome again !

The planitary gear approach is workable but it too, is very complicated. Not so much putting it in, that is tough too, but designing a box that engages and disegages. I originally planned on putting one on each axel to take all the stress off any parts of the drive train. If they are there, then they need to swing with the suspension and that makes it a lot more complex yet. So now I'm thinking using one in front of the transmission and one behind. I don't feel too bad about the diff taking the torque. Diffs have been going bad but not because they have been tearing the gears out. I would be real concerned of having something between the engine and trans because I don't think the trans would take triple the torque. Right now, the plaintary gear idea is on hold. Too many other things to do first and it's complexity keeps moving it down the list.

It would be full-time lower gearing but the gear reduction unit from the VW bus trans-axle mounted on each hub. When we were into dune buggies, if we wanted a lower geared buggy we ran the bus trans-axle. The gear reduction unit is a bolt on unit to the regular trans-axle. Maybe it could be adapted!

OR, maybe a gear reduction unit on each driveline. I like this idea best. The unit is strong enough.

Seems to me I heard or read that some one had just put a lower first gear in the tranny along with a higher 5th gear. Did I hallucinate, is it even possible, how hard would that be to do? I'd even be up for that mod.

You may be able to lower the gearing in the transmission but the amount would be limited. For a good crawling gear I would want about a 3:1 reduction. If they were put on each drive shaft like I'm thinking for the planitary set up or as Rocmoc said is probably the best approach. I would want it to engage or disengage. That is what I would do with the planitary. Gee, I'm just feeling I'm gaining on projects and you guys now got me thinking about the palnitary possibility again. I've have it shelved for some time now. It can be done but will require taking the planitary setups out of an older 350 chevy automatic transmission, which is what I have, and creating a way to lock it out to use the planitary or not. This entire system then needs to be put into a custom housing that has good bearings coming in and out with seals so everything can be run in an oil bath. I've got it sketched out but the machining operations are quite complex and will take a long time to prototype. Once developed, it could all be done on CNC machinery at a reasonable cost. I figure it would take at least 2-3 weeks on the computer in 3d modeling software, I use Solidworks, to develope the to the point of blueprints then probably another 2-3 weeks to build 2 units. One for the front drive shaft and one for the rear.

I don't have all the machines for building the planetary set up.. Any idea on the cost of two of those set ups.? The transfer case out of the older Suzuki Sami is a really small unit and has alot of gearing options.. You can get all the way down to a 6.5:1 (187%) in low range and a 20% in high range.. Could the run the 33" tires and be about the same gearing in high as stock..

That is me had alot of fun need to get together again one of these days if they ever slow down so I can get cought up.. Just now starting get this FORM thing figured out alot of good info.. guess you got yours all back together did you lower the rear end down while it was broken out any ways.?

I did lower the rear when I made the repair. Angle on the CV Joint is much less.

Only way I can think the Suzuki transfer case would work is to install forward of the engine and drive from only one side of the trans. Routing of the new drivelines would be the major problem.

      Hi,  can someone please verify if my timing marks are correct?   
      The images are of the timing marks at TDC.  the Crank/Cam marks look right on, but I was surprised to see the cam's timing marks completely off the page.   I was thinking I had it 180 out somehow because that's the symptoms I'm experiencing when trying to start it.   When I'm cranking it, and trying at full throttle, I hear some light (muffled) backfiring that sounds like on the intake side.

      This is a general comment on the support I received from Joyner-USA in Phoenix, AZ.  I needed one headlight assembly for my Renegade because the mounting pin was broken.  Duct tape and bailing wire held it in place for a few years.  To my surprise, they had them IN STOCK.  I bought two and kept one of  my good old ones as a backup.   They completed their move to a new address at 2415 S 18th Pl, Phoenix AZ from their former Riverside location.  As a gift, Jake gave me two T-shirts.  He said he as most of the parts for my  2014 Joyner Renegade.  I looked at his yard and he has several engines and UTVs in stock, mostly the 1100cc engines and several Renegades.  Maybe a Trooper or two was buried in there somewhere.  Everything was crated and outdoors.  I hope he moves his inventory indoors, out of the weather.  Their website says their hours are 9:00AM - 5:00PM but their actual hours are 10:00AM - 5:00PM.  I arrived at about 9:20AM and no one was there; place locked up.  I was a little upset that with a 9:00AM opening, someone should have been there.  I was concerned that I made a 70 mile round trip for nothing.  Fortunately, one of his employees showed up and told me of their later hours.  So, everything turned out fine.  I got the parts I needed and two T-shirts.  This is based upon a one time, 1st time experience.  I hope future vists are just as good.

      Anyone have an outer cv joint ball cage? Mine is cracked up. Other than that it's a good axel.
      Please let me know

      I had been wanting to install power steering on my T4 for years so I went to the salvage yard last weekend and bought a complete column (minus airbag) out of a 2009 Nissan Versa for $125 with the ECU.
      It was a fairly simple install. The long shaft that fits to the Joyner steering rack actually fit perfectly into the Nissan column. Had to weld up a U joint on the Nissan column to make it a straight shaft and fab up one simple bracket. Connect power and ground plus a switched 12v and now I can steer with one hand!

      Hello there, I have 4 T2 troopers, 2 of them start and run like Champs, 2 of them have the issue. They will crank and crank but not start. Takes about 20 to 30 minutes to get them going, then they will run all day long and fire up at will every time. It's just the cold start they have a problem with. Since I have 2 that run good, I have swapped every part you can think of from the fuel system to ignition system with no success. I'm pretty stumped and am looking for any advice
