I'm doing the swap over to NP208 and have a few questions. Since the unit is already out I wann a make sure I don't put a dud in.

When I shift it through the ranges I twisted the yokes to see how she moves. When I put her in 2hi the input shaft moves but the rear yoke slightly grabs and lets go. I don;t know if that's normal or not, my last T-case was the NP219.

How would one figure out the condition of the case? If I have to I'll pull her apart and rebuild it, but right now I don't want to.

Thanks

Well the rear yoke shouldn't let go if it's in 2 hi. I think the main thing to worry about in a 208 like most of this style is the condition of the chain. Put it in 4 hi and see how much play is between the rear and front yokes when you spin one or the other. Also, replace all of the output seals while you have it out.

Something else you might do is take the lower drain plug out and stick a telescoping magnet in the hole. There is a magnet inside the case at this drain area and if alot of debris is in there from the bearings and retainers, you will be able to pull some out with the telescoping magnet. I did this once and a big piece of bearing retainer came out indicating a rebuild was definitely in order.
