I found NV125 case for cheap, $200, will go pick it up tonight! If I can take it apart properly this time, I'll do a video on it shortly.

Got the "new" TC" and managed to take it apart properly this time!
Now just need to figure out a way to remove this last bearing, and every single bearing and seal will have been replaced!

Looks like an external "horseshoe" lock ring holding the bearing in place. If it is, then try something like this tool:

I wish. It's part of the transfer case.


The only tool so far that I can imagine to work is this
Neck Bearing Race Puller, Steering Neck Bearing Race Remover Metal for 1‑1/8in To 2‑5/8in ID Races https://a.co/d/9xJ25fs

No clue if it will work or not. I have some ideas of tools that could possibly work, but I haven't found them in existence (only in my head).

If this tool doesn't work, I will try packing toilet paper!

Was going to change some of the bearings in the meantime, and they're wrong again. The 6011 bearing doesn't have a groove like the original for the circlip! This ebay seller is a total joke and doesn't know what he's doing, just threw some bearings together!!!

Also the 6013 bearing I posted about at the beginning of this thread, original bearing has no groove, but the one I got in the kit has a groove. This is retarded...

I guess the only way is now to reorder from cobra transmission...

Heat the alloy case - the bearing will drop out.

How warm is it safe to heat it to?

The alloy casting won't melt with less than 800-900DegC. so stay lower than that!

But seriuosly, I use a hot air gun to heat motorcycle hubs etc when changing wheel bearings - I dont get them hot enough to melt the paint but it makes a massive difference.... maybe 150Deg.C

What was wrong with the old one, noisy, slack chain. What was your mileage.
