Guess it depends on your tools.
I'd say drop the gearbox and take it off when you have room to move.

yep, ya cant split the transfer from tranny while in there. the box is a heavy PITA, we put an engine crane in through the passenger side door to lower the box.

some bloke just the other day said he removed the transfer from the gearbox with it still in the car MK nut. crazy lol :crazy:

i would just get under the car and pull it out. pretty easy, take driveshafts off, remove wiring and cables (speedo + handbrake), from the cab you can remove gearsticks (pull up carpet and you can unbolt a floor plate to get access), then remove the bellhousing bolts and drop it. 1 decent jack and 2 people you will get it done.

I would of been crazier to drop a box and transfer i have no hope of lifting back in my self and I have no one to help me.

It was easier to remove the transfer, drop the drive shafts, take off hand brake, remove the gearbox mounts to let the box and transfer drop down.

Then dissasemble as described in the manual to remove from the gear box, the only real hard part was getting all the bolts to remove the top cover.

The transfer needs to be dissassembled partly to get the stupid 3 bolts inside it holding it to the gear box.

Once you drop the back of the gearbox/transfer down and remove the top cover there is plenty of room to work.

Hoping to have all the bearings for the transfer next weekend and if your lucky and I remember I will take some pics of the reassembly

so it can be done wthout removing gearbox?
Removing the TX from the gearbox in the car is not without its problems but if you don't have a trolley jack, or better still a hoist and transmission stand, then removing the TX first is pretty much the only way you can manage the weight of the gearbox if you need to pull it out. This requires partial disassembly of the TX so that you can get to the top bolts holding it to the gearbox.

How did you go? I am thinking of doing it this way as well, wayyyyyy too heavy for me, getting it back in straight is my main concern. cheers Lana
