SJ410 Transfer Case Question..

So cruisin craigslist, I came across this ad for a SJ410 Samurai Transfer case.. I'm not all that knowledgeable about this shenanigans.. The guy states that apparently the SJ410 tcase is lower geared and good for an additional park brake on ice and snow? Anyone know if the driveshafts would bolt up ? I tried that magical thing called google but couldn't really find the info I was looking for..?

I believe the sj t cases have the small flanges but you can swap them and a emergency brake on the tail shaft and about 12 percent low gear ratio in high and low range

I did find a little information about it, someone mentioning that some SJ410s had solid driveshafts made from bar stock instead of tube, and the pattern was smaller than the SJ413.. What year roughly would I be looking for? The early 80s, or mid 80s? Also, apparently there are some tcases that came with smaller flanges, and others that came with bigger flanges.. Which one of those would i be looking for that would work? One does, and one doesnt, but no one states which one i would want... I know either way there will be some machining, drilling out flanges and what not, and depending on if it came with a park brake then there would also be machining to the drum...

I think the one year everyone was looking for was 1984. Something about pulling that transfer case apart and swapping gears into a samurai to create a "rock lobster" transfer case (or something like that)

I think that is pretty much moot any more due to the aftermarket support the samurai had enjoyed.

85 to 88.5 have the smaller samurai flanges, smaller 4 bolt pattern,
88.5 + have a larger flange, bolt pattern,
generally if yours is an 88 you can tell if its an 88.5+ or earlier 88 by your dash vents, round dash vents in earlier samurais, 88.5 had rectangular.
85 is considered an sj413 I believe, oddball year, narrower diffs featuring samurai sized thirds, but 3.90 gears, same transfer case as 86/87
84 and earlier to 82 maybe 81? was sj410, 4 speed, 1.0l, smaller flanges than samurai, small driveshafts, believe you are correct, small diameter, solid tube, narrower axels yet with smaller thirds, drum brakes, transfer case e-brake, narrower fender flares, vertical grills ( all metal I think),
79/80 would be LJ80, flat fenders, narrower yet, very smaller, centered diffs, 800 cc, 4 speed, I don't know much about these
There were also sj410k versions which were pickup versions of the 410,
lj81 ( pickup version of the lj80 )
and 85 had a pickup version I think.

Best site for information I found is http://bbs.zuwharrie.com/

Not sure, are you looking for a transfer case or thinking gearing?

Matt

My sami is an 86 with an 88.5 motor swap in the finishing....

At this point, my transfer case is fine. I'm looking for more gearing. I was already looking into the rocklobster tcase build, and I'm thinking that if im going to go to the extent of trying to fit a 410 tcase in, i might as well just build a rocklobster. It really isn't all that much more work from what I was reading. Less machining as well if I'm not mistaken.

I did the trailgear 6.5 to 1 was the best thing I ever did worked great with 35s and very easy install money well spent in my opinion

Yep,

I had the 4.16:1,
then the 6.5:1,
both worked good, also gives high range reduction which is nice.
Make sure they're mounted in there good though, first you'll upgrade mounts, then twist the arms, then tear the drivers side mount right off the frame.

are you still running 35s on stock axles?


What would be the difference between doing a rocklobster vs. the trailgear?

I've already upgraded the tcase mounts on it as the stock ones were barely holding on there...

I've definitely got to lower the tcase though to fix the severe driveshaft angles.. not best bro..

I was looking at the trailgear axles, but the final decision is I'm not going to bother with building up sami axles, and if im going to build up a set of axles, they'll be toys. or narrowed 44
