Posted: Sun Jan 07, 2018 10:19 pm Post subject: Transfer case jumping out of gear
I'm new here I own an M-38 CDN (1952) and an M38 A1 CDN3 (1970) I am restoring the M38 A1 and my brother is restoring the M-38. Both Jeeps have a similar problem the M-38 pops out of low range, while the M38A1 pops out of High range while they are in 4x4. I am hoping that someone has had this problem and can help me with a list of transfer case parts that I would most likely have to replace.
1st make sure the popping out issue is in the transfer and that the tranny is functioning fine.
This can be confirmed on a road check that covers all the bases.
Make a run in tranny 1st gear accelerating hard and decelerating hard with the transfer in both low & high 4wd. Do this in three types of terrain, uphill, downhill and flat surface. Now do all three surfaces again with the tranny in 3rd gear and checking both Low & High transfer 4wd. Record the results.
It may also be a wise choice to repeat these battery of tests 2WD high.
Sometimes a worn tranny problem causing it to jump out of gear can also trip the transfer out of gear. _________________ Wes K
