All’s well that ends well I suppose. Some years ago when I boxed up the School Bus Project to move from one house to another I failed to protect several parts of my Transfer Case. They got wet and ruined. Mechhhh. I just purchased a Tcase with usable parts from Lamorna Garage and got a complete unit assembled. An expensive mistake. I have bolted on the Hydraulic PTO pump and control lever to see if they fit.
A few steps further down the road.
