Angry What do I have?

1977 SII,196 4cyl, 1bbl carb, D44 front and back,pretty stock, but it is also a 50 state "federal" Scout, meaning that there is not smog equipment required (pretty cool if you live in California, which I do).

trying to figure out what model 3 speed manual trans I have in my 1977 SII. It's a 3 speed stick with a "chain drive" transfer case. It also has a dashboard "pull" cable to shift into 4WD. It works fine but leaks like a sieve. Want to pull and rebuild. I can also change out the 196 rear main at he same time.

Another problem I am having is that it won't go into 4WD when pulling the cable. So, are these 3-speeds worth the effort to rebuild? Not going to do HARD offroading with the Scout, just mild stuff. I have not seen a chain drive Transfer case, so a little unsure. It there a rebuild kit available. I've searched the thread here and don't find anyone who has similar issues.

I would like to keep the Scout stock if I can. Sentimental reasons and it gets good MPG (about 19). Any help would be appreciated.

Thumbs up Re: What do I have?

Well:

I have a IH Single Speed Chain Drive transfer case. IH model - TC-143, IH Code 13143. After playing with it all day Sunday, I pulled the "pull cable" from the dashboard, and tried to disconnect the cable. Removed the cable cover plate so I could see the "innards". the cable casing is real hard plastic/rubber (maybe because its from 1977?). I noticed that even when straight, the cable is very hard to actuate.
Tried monkeying with the adjustment screw, had the cable engaged to 4WD - SUCCESS!. But after all that , I think I will just get a new cable made. Around $85,from a shop here in SoCal. Anyway, nice to know that I don''t have to pull the damn T-case out. BTW- was able to see the internal chain. It has maybe a 1/4 inch up and down play.

Gee- I love working on these old iron machine. Good mental therapy.

You need a 4 speed from a Scout II with a manual bull gear and a Dana 20 also from a Scout II. I don't know that there is such a thing as a "going price" for the stuff, but you're looking at several hundred dollars, plus up to a couple hundred more if those heavy items have to be shipped anywhere.
