If you're getting awful grinding noises when shifting gears, it's time to check out your Transfer Case Oil Pump Parts. When you're an off-roading adventurer, nothing should get in the way of your smooth ride. Chances are good if you're already hearing that grinding sound, the anti-rattle clip has been worn down or cut through, and it is time to get new housing for your oil pump. Luckily 4 Wheel Parts has got you covered with oil pump housing parts for trucks or Jeeps.
The Pump's Purpose
Your truck or Jeep transfer case oil pump housing is designed to supply the oil that lubricates the dry sleeve and gear range planetary set, which need pressurized oil to operate properly. The pump body directs into the rear housing of the transfer case from the main shaft. The anti-rattle clip is intended to provide lenience between the case and the pump body. After extended use, the pump body tends to eventually tear through the clip and rear housing.
When a hole is torn through the rear housing the fluid will gradually leak out and cause the very slow and painful death of your transfer case. A hole in the housing is a pretty obvious problem to spot, but even if you do not see one, an oil grime build-up from fluid leaking and mixing with road debris near the back of the case housing is a strong indicator there is a problem.
What You Need
To repair the issue, you are going to need machined pump housing, a transfer case adapter housing gasket, thread locker, and Silicone Sealer with applicator nozzle.
