Default Divorced Transfer Case conversion: T-18 or Borg Warner

Want to convert a transfer case into divorced one for Jeeps

Anyone who has done this before please share .

Also are there any Ideas for such ? Any alternatives ?

I have been thinking this for quite a long time , this will help sort many issues in Jeep building .

Like

# improving the ramp angle of the Jeep ( by pushing the TC mounting upward )

# Better provision to match prop shaft angles in SPOA projects

# Chance to vary engine position / mountings ( Lh Rh -- Fr Rr etc )

# try various Engine + GB options

Hi Sudarshan JEE,

I did a little research on this line.

Let me list out the Divorced T-Case available in INDIA.

1) Maruti Gypsy
2) Force Gurkha/4x4
3) Force Excel?
4) Tata 407
5) Tata LPTA
6) Leyland Stallion
7) Shaktiman

Options 5/6/7 are not suited to Light 4x4 usage. They are too big.

Option 4 the the front out put is on the LHS i.e opposite to the JEEP.

Option 1 a little to small for JEEP usage.

The Force T-Case is ideal for JEEP usage, and can be adapted as such.

Regards,

Arka

Thanks for sharing Sir

even if the diff tubes are swapped ( Lh to Rh ) its heavy for Jeep . I vaguely remember & if I am not wrong ( please correct me if I am ) , Isnt it the same /similar TC that used to come with the 312 range of army trucks ? especially the recovery ones ? ( the look alike of TMB range )

yes they can be . But one glitch , is the direction of rotation of prop shafts the same as jeeps ?? I dont know for sure & remember someone saying something different . so asked

Also T 18 serviceability & parts availability are unmatched currently ( I believe ) & this is THE plus point of using a T 18

you are always welcome Sir


Here are some pics of the T 18 Jeep TC shell , by which interested people can guess how it can be done by using & editing these first images . I will also be re posting the edited pics with my views later ,these are just for the beginning

this face is towards the front of the vehicle ( Rh side mates with GB & Lh one is front output shaft housing )

Bottom view

Back side of the TC ( towards rear of the Vehicle ) bigger hole is PTO hole , smaller - the rear output shaft ( housing )

Detailed PTO & Front ( our business ends )

Divorced Transfer Case conversion: T-18 or Borg Warner-dscn4024.jpg

Divorced Transfer Case conversion: T-18 or Borg Warner-dscn4028.jpg.

This kind of layout I have in my mind using a divorced TC -- this is a Suzuki L 80 something layout

Exactly how does one get one's hands on a new divorced TC suitable for Mahindra Jeep sized vehicles in India? I understand that Force has a special parts counter and clerk in Chandigarh just for divorced TCs....not.

I found this to be useful .

Question about its quality & reliability remains in reserve though

this is from one side only , my idea is to fit the second bearing on the pto side .
