    A note to say good work, keep it up. I think I have an excess of back burner projects already, but this sure would be neat...

    I'm just here to learn, and have done so. Duuane, Keep up the t-fer case work, maybe I'll get rich by some freak bank error and I can send my case to you for upgrading. :)

    M135 M211 2 speed transfer case mod

    So again, if we're talking 50's deuces, what's the weak link in their driveline? If we've got 80 years of "learnin' ", well, we have still got to understand how they did things then in order to properly repair/modify them. I'm no metallurgist or engineer, but I do work on modern cars/trucks...

    Well, isn't the subject matter pertaining to "early deuces" which are made in the 1950s? I don't know squat about most deuce matters, as mine is modified and I've only put a few dozen gallons of fuel through it in 6(?) years. But mechanically there's always a "weak link". In the drivetrain...

    The never word is very strong. I immediately think of a Briggs&Stratton flywheel "key" that's made of aluminum and (the way I see it) designed to shear to avoid bending a connecting rod. Maybe it's not a true "key"?

    I often don't know the day's date, and when I read "Happy Thanksgiving"...wow, I really didn't think my clock was off that bad! lol Happy Thanksgiving to you, either a few days late or a few weeks early. ;) Thanks for the efforts. I discussed this mod w/my brother after he helped me drag my...

    Duuane, very interesting. And now (after some googling) I have a vague understanding of a Pilgrim nut. I'd love to take a tour of shops that do work like that. Perhaps that's the key to the success of YouTube stuff. It's a shame there's relatively little old "steel soldier" stuff on...

    What kinda boat/engine/stuff are you working on? I'm near the confluence of the Ohio and Mississippi rivers, barge repairs are common. This tells you how much I know about it: Somebody trucks large props by my house, they come back very shiny. lol

    Happy Easter to you! Fantastic posts with great info! Thank you for the effort. Edit to add: Did I miss the price/source for the gear?

    Hey, where are the pics of the completed mods? :) (Kidding, of course.) I am interested and hope you can document this stuff with some vids or pics. I've learned a lot from YouTube vids, I find that info is lacking on old subjects that don't have a youthful following.

    Duuane, good luck in your quest. I remain curious and open to the cheapest/easiest way to achieve a lower range.

    I hope I'm mechanically inclined (as a pro car mechanic), but unless I've got a very good diagram or preferably a unit to look (touch/feel), I'm probably not gonna grasp the power flow path. The way I read the original post, the PTO output was sacrificed to get the other range. Was that your...
