When I did my tcase swap all I had to go by was a really crappy writeup that someone did on another forum..And I got thru it..

It was my primary reason to do my writeup.. You should be fine.. Its really not that hard..

Its pretty easy. If you get into it and run into any problems, just post them up, someone will help you out. Swampy's write up did the job for my swap.

Speedo stuff should swap right over.. Indicator switch depends on what year t case you get.. If its a close year model it may work.. Otherwise it may not..

ok guys, just droped ny crappy 249 today, got good news and bad news.

i will start with the bad,

(1) the yoke on my drive shaft wont fit on the tailshaft of my 231HD, the yoke has a larger diameter and just spins around the out put shaft,

(2) the plastic speedo sensor in the 231 case is a bit chewed up, i hope it is not a sign of terrily bad things in the case, but it turns smooth and shifts well, so i am opptimistic.

(3) it is verey dirty and greasy.


ok time for good news about the case.
...........um...um...um....um..um

(1) o yea, when i clean it up, it will be shiney Mr. Green





so as you can see, i am having more problems than blessings, but i kinda expected that.
