Hay just wondering am I able to swap my gq rd28 transfer case to a gu rd28 box .. I'm hoping so then the gear transfer stick will match up ..
Thanks heaps .Hay just a quick question. I only have to undo all the bolts around the transfer case to split it of the box . I think it's about 10 or so bolt ..Yes it will bolt up to the box, but the GU shifter won't work with the GQ transfer, the cotter pin slot in the shift shaft is in a different spot, roughly 60-70 degrees out.
Also the GU detent plate for the transfer shifter won't swap over the as GQ transfer doesn't have the mounting lugs for it.
as the GQ detent plate is mounted to the gearbox.
The GQ transfer also has the 4wd switch where the GU detent plate would bolt to,
the 4wd switch is further back in a different spot on the GU transfer.
i think you can use all the GQ transfer linkage and shifter and the stick ends up in roughly the same spot though.
the GU box still has the mounting lugs for the GQ linkage shifter plates/detent plates etc.
i'm currently doing another conversion in a GU with a GQ transfer on the back of an RD28 box,
was told it was a GU box, but can't really tell as it's got a ZD30 navara bellhousing on it.
the gearset looked a little different to the last GQ rd28 box i had apart, so i think it is a GU box.
Here's a pic with the GU shifter on top of the GQ transfer. View attachment 514345
14 bolts, it's the junction just behind the main gearshifter and gearbox mounts,Thanks heaps .Hay just a quick question. I only have to undo all the bolts around the transfer case to split it of the box . I think it's about 10 or so bolt ..
I was going to mention to drain the gearbox first. The place that fitted my reduction gears hadn't pulled the transfer ccase off a 2.8 before & ended up with all the gearbox oil all over his workshop floor. All othe patrols have a seal at the back of the gearbox.
