Before all you Datto owners starting making smart remarks, I'd appreciate some technical advice (that doesn't constitute sell the toyota and buy a nissan). What exactly does my mechanic mean when he says he will have to re-race (correct spelling??) my transfer case? Is this tech-talk for replacing warn parts, or is it an actual process of some description? As you can tell I'm a complete idiot when it comes to this sort of stuff.
Just bought the truck ex-govt. with 70,000kms on it, but it had been used and abused as a tow-horse. Lucky its under warranty!!!!

Chris, re-race basically means to replace all the bearings in the transfer case, ie the race and roller bearings.

Cheers and Beers

As above, should also include all new seals, they are usually damaged in the bearing removal process.
