LT77 change. Things I need to know.


Recommended Posts

Next on my list is a gearbox change.

i want to recon my LT77. I’ve never removed one before. The engine and box are out so access not a problem. I need to split it from the engine and trans.

aside from removing all the bolts are there any pitfalls I need to be aware of?

I've just pulled a LT77 off a Transfer box recently it had been worked quite hard and the female splines on the input gear had worn, quite badly, in  - which ultimetly cause it lock it onto the output shaft of the gearbox - quite interesting really, one of the issues of a non cross drilled input gear.

So learning point - if it appears stuck, back off on the gear box, or the transfer box output which might effectively help unlock the wear issue, as its only usually on the main drive direction. I had to jury rig up a puller to get it freed off.
