Just about finished with the case itself.
Got to get one longer bolt for flange bearing and seal the flanges.
And get other side bolted on and install a drain plug.
Other than that it's pretty much done. Got to make mounting bracket.
Case measures 9w x 13h x 5deep with 5.5 inches of drop.

Nice looking case!!! Here's the chain case I built. 5.07:1. 24" drop. Triple 60 chain up top. Double 80 on bottom. Very smooth. And quiet.

Nice, I was thinking of a 3 shaft drop case, no idlers needed.

What shafts did you use?

Wish I was able to cut splines! I'm no machinist by any means, and only have access to a lathe.

A lot of time and thought goes in these things!

Hopefully get it installed in a week or so so I can see how it will hold up!

After many years of running equipment with chains I've learned that the cheap china chain isn't worth the savings after you buy 4 or 5 of them to last as long as one American Drive or Diamond chain.
the planetary trucks break pinion shafts occasionally. the 5 ton trucks don't.

I thought about getting the high price chain. But considering I run my truck maybe once a month and it is enclosed and will be oil filled, hopefully it will last a while.
We shall see. I hope to get it installed next weekend. After I run it I will check and see if the chain has any slack in it.

Finally getting the case installed. Hope to try it out at tgw slopoke.

Still have to make mount bars and supports and cut down the driveshaft.

Transfer case did great. Ran it hard at Slopoke this weekend.

Forgot to install a vent though so it was pushing some oil out.
I'm happy with it. Made a big difference going from 2:1 to 3:1.
