Re: Tera 2 Low kit with a wide chain

Did you use studs for the T-case halves? Or all thread cut down, double nutted to install and bottomed out in the holes? Hard to tell from the pics as I dont see a clear thread relief.

Re: Tera 2 Low kit with a wide chain

Those are 2" studs that were set to depth with a set tool.

Re: Tera 2 Low kit with a wide chain

I finally received the star washer that they sent the wrong one. Anyway it's in and I will fill the xf case tomorrow. I did get both diffs done so they're ready to go, just got to lube up the driveshafts and install them.

Re: Tera 2 Low kit with a wide chain

Can't tell, but did you do the 6 gear planetary, or stick with the stock 3 gear one? I should rip my case apart and add the 2 low. Already have the wide chain and 6 gear in it.

Re: Tera 2 Low kit with a wide chain

It's a 5 gear planetary, 16 yrs ago I installed the Tera 4:1 front case. I wished I had done the 2lo and the wide chain then!

Re: Tera 2 Low kit with a wide chain

All is good so far, no leaks (knock on wood). The shifter pattern is not off by much, I expected it to be more. So I've been driving slow until I get it all oiled up, I assemble it all dry to insure a good bond on the sealers. I'll report on the brakes in my other thread.

Re: Tera 2 Low kit with a wide chain

Well I've developed a leak. It's the front yoke seal and because of the slinger I can't see if it's the ID or the OD. I didn't see anything unusual with the yoke and I have double/triple checked the part#(710046) for proper fitment.

Re: Tera 2 Low kit with a wide chain

So in order to not "f***" around with this and not taking it apart, I ordered a new Timkem seal and a new yoke. Although my 18+ yr old front driveshaft(only grease fitting on the slip yoke) never gave me any problems, I also ordered a TW driveshaft!

Nothing more aggravating than buttoning up a job just to have it leak after.... I hope the fix is quick and easy! 👍

Re: Tera 2 Low kit with a wide chain

I received my yoke yesterday and the seal today, I panted the yoke and de-burred the seal edge. The new Timken seal feels a lot better than the Nation seal did on my output shaft(and they all measured the same). My TW shaft will be here tomorrow so the games on then!

Did you get the boostwerks linkage to work with 2low? I gave up and went back to my Novak cable shifter
