What year t-case?

My son had the transfer case seize up on him and we need a new one. His is a 1987 suzuki samurai. Any idea what years will fit? Do you know of anyone who has one for sale or do you have one for sale? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Henry

the only difference on samurai t cases are the size of the yoke. (2 sizes) So as long as you have the yoke off his. Any samurai t case will work for you..

Well it might be more work if you get a 2wd T-case

So i'd recommend t-case from a 4wd samurai

Try checking to see if the rubber bushing under the shifter is crumbling/gone first, thats usually why they lock up. A new shifter "sheet" from any of the suzuki aftermarket vendors will fix the problem for $12. Remove the shifter, and reach in the hole and shift the case manually with a long screw driver, this will tell you if its really broke or not (probably not)

As was mentioned, probably a bad shifter sheet most likely. Follow the instructions above. I have never seen a Samurai t-case sieze, ever. I have seen them split apart, but never sieze up.

The next biggest problems with the early (pre '91) t-case is the front ouput shaft being improperly shimed alowing the engagement ring to slip when you put it under a load.
You will notice a ringing or a ping sound like someone hitting an anvil with a hammer.

Hope that helps
