repaird awd center diff

was able to rebiuld a expanded awd five speed center diff was able to press it apart and reinstall the clutchs and plates and wire seperators. I thought it was a non rebiuldabble part but it seems to be fixabble. The trans had lost the awd output berring that ruind the front awd berring and that alowded the gear to grab the snap ring and tear it out then awd expanded and came apart. was a mess inside but was repairablle and go's back in today see how it works. The cool thing is that you could modify the awd to make it stiffer or more or less responsive by adding or removeing plates or viscus fliud
did you put in new fluid? where did you get it?
I THINK I once read an article or maybe watched a video(Australian source IIRC) about testing and modifying those viscous units. A guy had one chucked in a lathe and was testing/measuring it with some kind of torque wrench.

Also note that this only works with the 99+ VC's. The older one's are welded together and can't be opened without destroying them.

I dont remember the board members that have done it, but I've seen it come up in some conversations on the forum

Is the 99 VCD swappable into the earlier 5 speeds? I keep hearing about welding up the center diff, but if the older style is not openable I dont see how people are welding them.
You would have to swap the entire transfer case.
You don't have to weld the VC itself. You just weld it to the spider gears so no differentiation can occur.
