If i put on a hose to equalise the pressure between the gearbox and the transfer case does it connect between the filler plugs or the drain plugs . T he guy where the kit is bought from says definately the drain plugs . I saw in a 4wd magazine where they connected the hose between the two filler plugs .

Hi Glenno
Definetly to filler plugs and make sure your connections are steel not brass.
Been running them for many years on several cruisers

Cheers Steve

Split the case and box and fix the seal instead.....

Why put a band aid on it.

Major operation to replace the seal which only lasts a while, when fitting the hose is cheap, easy, and affective. Go with the hose.

I wouldnt say removing the t/case was a major operation, I have done mine on my other cruisers before without a problem, and if all the seal running surfaces are in good condition the seal should see 150k + if using a factory seal.

once more , and slowly for the dummy
do I understand that i can reduce the leaks I get in my 1985 cruiser FJ62 which I have had repaired several times
The leakage greater just after each service .
To reduce the leaks I get some
hose ( what sort )
some fittings ( what sort )
and join the gearbox and transfer case filler holes.
Is it the same for an Automatic
from the previous post it sayes " a kit can be purchased"
if so where
Rod

Yup, definetely the filler plugs, can't see a problem with using brass connections though, plenty of teflon tape on the threads and use full stainless 'solid' wormdrive clamps.

Think about it, what happens if you somehow pierce the hose or snag it on something and tear it loose, if it is connected to the drain hose - leaky leaky, grindy grindy, sweary sweary, empty wallet, :-((((

Do it like roothys efforts, and a good idea would also be to get some 'p' clip brackets to secure the hose to the gearbox/ trans case for extra protection.

BTW nice shot of the troopy, looks MAP ( Mean As P...)

Some brass connections are not very thick walled and can crack.

yes filler not drain. Just a point I noticed my tc leaking oil from varios seals/gaskets so I drained it to the correct level and topped up the gearbox so the gear box had been putting oil into the t/c with no leveling of fluids oh and it fixed the leaks

Yeah...filler plugs. Had one on my FJ55. Carry some spare hose because I snagged the hose a few times doing cross country work. You soon know when the hose breaks...that beautiful smell of gear oil !!! I used steel connections.

Sorry, excuse my ignorance but why do you need to equalise the pressure between Gbox and Tcase ??

It's not pressure that is equalised. It's the fact that some Cruiser models have a nasty habit of transferring oil from one to the other (can't recall which way). End result is one is low on oil and the other over full. The hose ensures they both stay at the correct levels.

OK DiesAl you've got me at a disadvantage. Who am I corresponding with?
Was back at work yesterday. We had a fantastic time over the Easter break. Wasn't cold (although I enjoy the cold weather) and it didn't rain which was a bloody miracle because it always has whenever I've been to that area.

It's always a pleasure to have them on a trip. Pity it's only once a year these days. Will we see you in the Club one day or are you not in Brissie?
