After reading in the TM-8012 to ensure the rear bearing stays in the transmission housing while separating the units, this rig decided to be a bear and pulled the bearing along with the t-case. It was really stuck in the t-case housing! What kinds of problems am I up to now getting it set back into the transmission?
And now I'm really confused when Rick Sivers keeps the bearing in the T-Case housing during his disassembly video on youtube? Which is correct?

I believe the OEM directions assume a displacement of the tranny mainshaft & gears could possibly occur if the bearing doesn't stay firmly in place in the tranny case. I believe Rick Stivers has never had a problem letting the bearing fall out with the transfer so he ignores that little precaution in the manual. The choice is entirely yours however an extra set of hands are not always available during the transfer removal process to secure the bearing to the tranny for the final stage of the transfer withdrawal. If the bearing should follow the transfer the first step in the transfer re-installation is to ensure the bearing and shaft are correctly installed and aligned in the tranny. _________________ Wes K
