As the weather was promising to be good this week, I decided to make a start on changing the transfer box. I had bought a replacement from Ricardo, on my recent visit to him. The first job was to separate the transfer box from the gearbox. I will be using the replacement gearbox too. There is not a problem with my gearbox, as far as I know, but the replacement has done less miles. I only separated them to make it easier to lug them around for cleaning. Gunk engine cleaner was brushed on and then the muck was removed with a pressure hose. Lastly, scraping and wire brushing, removed the stubborn bits.
Next is to remove the old gearbox and transfer from the UMM. I will have a look at the clutch while it is apart.
