hello

i bought a used 2004 double cab auto with what looks to be an inchworm taco box with a 4.7 kit and inchworm adapters connected to a stock push button transfercase. i drained the first case and it looked like looked like a half a quart of redline gear oil. the rear case had two quarts of 80-90w so they cant share fluid. inchworm is out of buisness so low range offroad is no help


can anyone help me identify the tranfercase?
please help me with what fluid would go in it and how much?
does anyone have this setttup?
is there a better place to ask?

Have you tried contacting the manufacturer of the inchworm unit? I'd suspect that you'll want to put back exactly what came out!

how are you guys filling your tcases ? from the breather tube? even with the rear of my truck jacked up a foot I can only get 1 quart in the stock case. filling from the shifters sounds great but theyre siliconed so does that mean i have to re silicon them everytime i fill the cases? i thought i was done siliconing when i ditched the jeep....

This got me thinking..
I need to pull my dual cases to re-seal them. It is easier to fill them from the top but my twin stick unit on the rear case has to be pulled and re-sealed with silicone. Maybe I can drill and tap a plug into it so I can fill it without pulling it off.

so now that i have everything full of fluid Im on to the next issues..... the tranny and tcase breathers are jst open ready to accept this winters water and mud. so in making my breather tube parts list i noticed in stock form the transmission connects via breather to the transfercase and the transmission has its own seperate breather to extend. my question is why would the tcase and tranny share a breather but not the same fluid? its called a "pressure equilizer"

im jst gunna cap one of the trans breathers and extend one for the trans and a seperate one for the transfercase. and I also replace the dust boots for the tcase shifters as they were torn up and useless
