Post double sami tcases?

i just had thought. i have a 4.89 sami case, what if i put a stock t case in front of it? i know it would have no high range which doesn't matter. if i just changed the shfter on the stock case so it could use 2-low then it wouldn't even spin the front d.shaft flange on the front case. in low-low i would have a crawl ratio of 213:1 which is right where i want to be. do you think the cases could handle it? it would be like $100 and some fab work to more than double my low range. i can't remember what the high range gears are so i'm not even sure how bad it would be. it's just going to be on the trails so i don't think it would be a big deal. 94:1 is nowhere near as low i had hoped it would be.

the only thing that really concerns me is the strength of cases and gears.

well i'm having trouble seeing an easy way to mate two of the sami cases together without offsetting the rear driveshaft even more. what other divorced t cases are out there? there must be a cheap way to get the gears down.

I've heard of many people doing this with succession around here.... there's also the OTT thing with the tracker tranny with mated case to stock sammy case... that work well but costs $$$$ compared to two stockers

how are they connecting the 2 cases? the rear output is offset and the input needs to be centerd. do they just space them apart enough and connect with a shorty shaft with a compound angle? if i can do this i would sure like to. any info, pics, etc... is WANTED! i'd like to keep my t case as close to it's orginal position as possible and then stuff another one in front of it. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

the other option is the adapter ott is coming out with that lets you run the toy cases divrced from the the tranny. the aa reduction box is $400 and then a toy tcase is like $100 then the ott adapter $$$? and shorten the little tranny driveshaft. it's the only way i could see myself running dual toy cases any time soon. it's at least affordable. and cheaper than $1000 6:1 sami case that i keep hearing about. also get the toy stuff.

wonder what it would cost to set up a sidekick tranny, sidekick reduction box, and hook them to the sami case. rick weren't you talking about this setup?

well, everyone and their brother uses toyota drivetrains in the sami, so bolt in a toyota drivetrain with married T-case, and run a nissan case divorced.

it will be plenty strong, and should be able to be done out of the yard pretty cheap.

rick was talking about that setup... it will cost you lots but it's worth it.. I've seen the sidekick tranny to sidekick reduction to stock sammy case and it's a good setup but it only works on lwb sammy's from what I know... and from what I've also been told the dual toy cases wont work unless you stretch the frame like two inches or something......

Poppyseed, I remember seing somewhere that Mike Shaffer in his swb sami had a kick tranny and gear reduction box hooked up to the GRS II. I remember seeing it on the Suzuki off-road BBS about 8 months ago, do a search. So don't get rid of that GRS II yet. He had a 170:1 crawl gear ratio if I remember rightly, that should be more than enough to turn those 38's.

i'm kinda wanting to get this thing going so i think i'm going to just put a rebuilt 1.3 engine back in and use the sami tranny. so the divorced toy setup seems like it would work best for me. length isn't really a concern. my frame is stretched quite a bit already. and from my calcualations if i run 2 AA cases at 2.28 and then 1 toy case at 2.28 i could have a 228:1 low range and do it for around $1200 and maybe some driveline mods depending on how long it would actually be. might be too many shifters but its cheaper than buying the toy 4:1 gearset. i don't think i've ever seen a grs2 for sale before <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> i have no idea what to ask for it. i have to call ott and see just what i'm for if i go this route first.

the grs2 is like 14 months old with like 4 moths use on it. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0"> to say it's cherry would be an understatement. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> it's the complete case from petroworks. it has the 2-low split H shift pattern and a spidertrax billet shifter knob. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> i paid $1200 what is it worth?

Talking

I have seen a dual-Samurai t-case rig and I must say it was an interesting setup. To get the output(s) close enough to work, you must rotate the 1st (front) case clockwise until the shifter is almost parallel to the ground. He cut a hole in the side of the tranny tunnell, then bent the shifter up. It leaked when the rig's driver side was elevated more than ~1 foot. You mount the 2nd t-case almost in the stock position (rotationally) but farther back. The gearing was good for a trail rig, but even with stock gears you got 1.41 x 1.41 in high range = a lot of reduction. Supposedly, those guys are going to be selling a kit for this swap, but I don't really know them - probably find more info on the ORC Zuki board search. <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

What if you put in a stock nissan case in FRONT of the stock sami case, wouldn't that get the offset problem taken care of? You could probably build a crossmember that would hold the two cases, without shaft between them (maybe a u-joint only) and a super short intermediate shaft between the nissan t-case and the transmission. Shouldn't be too much longer than stock would it? Also you could turn the nissan case upwards (clock it) so that the front outputs would not interfere.

Hope I'm not too far off <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

toygeek i'm going to find a nissan case and look. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> there is room to fit a small divorced case in between the stock one and the tranny. and yes as long as it's input and rear output are centerd i don't see why it wouldn't work. i bet it's stronger than the sami case too.

this is why I would put it in back, the stronger one further downstream, since it will see more torque than the first one.

o.k. mine is an offrad only rock buggy zook thing and i'm running the zook case first and nissan case 2nd but, i'm bolting it directly to the front output on the sammy case. so it's backward but it turns the right direction . the nissan case has the input on the top and both outputs are centered. the case is vertical in design and it is about 8" from upper input to lower outputs. a buddy is machinng a 1" adapter fer me and i have not run it yet but it should work great. the nissan case is in the center of the frame this way and with 9" of lift, my drivelines are only at 5 degree angle to the case. cooool huh !!!

Poppyseed,
Call Gary @ Petroworks. I spoke with him today about a "Planitary" system (4:1 ?) that takes the place of the trans drive shaft. He said something about less than $1000. This would give you street driving and multiple gear reduction choices.

I still think you should "Stretch" your rig to fill that extra frame. I have an extra hardtop body that "you" can have for free if you do it.

Have Fun
Dave
