i think you might have read my question backwards.

im talking about using a SYE that is designed for a 96+ transfer case on a '93 transfer case.

Re: SYE compatibility

first things first... which SYE kit? Almost every one I've seen works for any NP/NV231. Only differences are some old ones have a cable driven speedometer, and some years (pre-96?) have bearings you have to remove.

Re: SYE compatibility

The hack and tap for a 96+ will not work with an older kit. Thats why they have a separate kit for those.

Re: SYE compatibility

The only thing you will need is the tail shaft housing to make it work correct?

Can't seem to find anyone selling just the housing but here's a pic of what you need. You might be able to get one at a JY cheap or just buy the seal housing from RE(The purple thing and seal to the left).

To use a 97+ SYE kit on a pre-97, you would need a 97+ tailshaft housing AND a 97+ tail shaft!and no seal adapter.

A pre-97 seal adapter will not bolt to a 97+ housing!
BTW:I have a 97+ housing and output shaft,pm if interested.
