Can't attach reduction unit to Borg Warner 13** transfer case

Hello,

I could soooo use your help. Nobody around seems familiar with the old BW13** quadratrac.

I have been trying to reassemble a quadratrac off and on for over a year now. Yesterday I think I may have found the issue. I took it to a "pro" about a year ago. I brought it home and let it sit for a month or so because I was busy with other things. I went to install it and the actual transfer case mounted fine. But when I tried to install the reduction unit, I couldn't get it to fit completely. It was about 1/4' away from the seal. I tried twisting and turning every which way but nothing. Then someone recommended taking off the end cover (PTO cover) off the reduction unit to turn it by hand. Tried that but no luck. Tried locking, neutral and unlocking the reduction unit etc but no luck.

This has been going on and off for over a year. Then yesterday I took everything off again and think I may have figured out the problem.

There is a snap ring that goes on the quadratrac itself that faces the reduction unit. Is that snap ring supposed to sit flush with the quadratrac? It looks like there is a space for the ring ears to sit in the case? But the ring is about 1/4" higher than the case. The snap ring is very much in the groove in the gear, but it sits about a 1/4" above the rest of the case. And that is about the distance that the reduction unit sits away from the tcase when I try to install it. The reduction unit does not contact the rubber sealing ring at all. Someone suggested installing the bolts and torquing them down to close the gap but I don't want to break off the ears of the cases.

I am sooo desperate to get my rig back on the road and can't get help anywhere. The guy that originally put it together for me is no longer there. I have scoured both the 77 TSM and the 74 TSM and haven't found anything.(Big thank you by the way for posting and hosting those).

This is all in a 1974 Jeep J10 with 360 and th400 trans. I have included some pics. Hopefully they help explain my situation.

Thank you


ps - i tried to upload some pics but because of a stupid technicality, this site won't let me upload them. They are jpg files and only 113kb- 132kb in size. Well below the 488 kb size limit of this site
