If the notch is facing up or down when reinstalling the half of the case the dark gray arm will not sit flush thus causing the spring to stay depressed. If the spring is depressed the clutches stay together. I dont believe it directly relates to the tcase motor. If you look at the picture of the dark gray arm you will see two raised notches on the top and bottom(shiney silver due to pressing the plate). If the notch hits those it will not activate properly

I'm interested in this as well...seems like it can only be a part swap with better quality materials...I doubt it's modified like some of the valve body work.

From what i gathered from taking mine apart, all the parts are pretty beefy except for the clutches in the basket

key is getting another clutch in there. proper machining makes some room for it. I have had brand new spare in shop for a while now that's had a full colonoscopy.

Again, great write up. You got the issue with the locator notches on the arm in there too. Good sequential photos...

I always heard the clutch plates were carbon fiber and hence the reason for the NV146 fluid. Is that true?

Now you have me thinking if there are any clutches and plates made with different material that may fit our TC...

Found some good info regarding different materials

anyone ever figure out the weight and spec on our T/C fluid. I know is smells like burnt garlic mudbutt, but anyone know the numbers on it?
