Icon4 Just picked up my transfer case, problem?

I picked up my 1354M Manual transfer case for $150 today.

It came from a 1990 Bronco 2, the front output has a different yoke than my 1354E. Can I switch the existing yoke on the 1354E onto the 1354M to hook up my driveshaft?

Please don't tell me the spline count is different cause I was totally psyched to get this thing.

I only have 5 days to return it, so I need an answer quick thanks guys.

Also are the manual shifter linkages all the same on these transfer cases?

That's what I was afraid of that you were going to get the 1350 since it was coming from a BII. Changing that is going to take some work and you might as well rebuild it if you're going that far into the case. Your best bet is to either return it and get a 1354 or else measure the drive shaft from an 80's ranger and ensure its the same length as yours and just swap drive shafts.

Oh and the shift linkages from the 1350 are different from the 1354 but should bolt to your trans without any problems.

No, the 1350's have that different style output a 1354 will be the same as your electric shift output. If its from an explorer for sure then it will be a 1354.

Alright, thanks so much. I'll give the guy a call. I think he'll just swap them for me.

When you say the front yoke output are you refering to the part that bolts to the tranny? or the front yoke that the front driveshaft bolts to. If you're referring to the front yoke that goes to the driveshaft then I believe you'll have to swap out that yoke. I'm pretty sure I've read the only 1354M that will bolt up to the existing front driveshaft in the newer Rangers is the FX4 LII case.

Just finding a 1354 is not enough to guarantee a plug and play installation in your 2001. Any 1354 from a 90~97 Ranger or 91~96 Explorer will come with a different yoke that is not compatible with the factory 98+ Ranger front shaft. The front shafts of the earlier 1350/1354's used a double cardan CV joint instead of the 98+ cup style CV joint.

It looks like Bob got you taken care.of. You might check out my Manual T-case swap thread in this forum. Here is the link.
https://www.ranger-forums.com/f37/ma...e-swap-103317/

I had pretty much all the same questions you had and everyone got me lined out. Post #12 &13 I think touch on what Bob said.

So just swapping the yoke from my stock t-case won't do the trick? I apologize but I'm not very familiar with drivetrain talk.

I read through the linked thread a bit, but it doesn't really address the ability to use the 1350 and swap the yokes. What am I not getting?

If it came out of a BII then by going off of this tech page Ford Ranger Transfer Cases
it's a 1350. I wouldn't even mess with it. Take it back and get an explorer case and then the front driveshaft with it.

you will need a older style drive shaft i would go ahead and do the swap to the older style cause thay last longer than the drive shaft you got now plus you can service the older styles this newer style when it wears out its shot throw it away and go buy a new one

I called him back and they don't have any expo or ranger with manual shift they're all electric, but he said he won't charge the 20% restocking fee, since he mistakenly thought it was the right t-case.

Well back to searching I guess.

Thanks for all the help.

So should I find a 90 Bronco 2 driveshaft? Is the yoke at the front differential the same?

I just thought of something else.

Will the bracket I bought from Grant (Dangerranger01) still work with the 1350 t-case? I'll have to order the linkage for the 1350, but I don't know if that bracket will still work the same

I guess the salvage yard guy felt bad about selling me the wrong t-case. He just called and said he found a front driveshaft out of a 91 Ranger.

Will it work for a 1350 and my stock front diff?

I can't answer if it'll work or not since I don't have a 1350 to look at. Have you tried the website Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market. You can look at salvage yards inventory all around the country. Thats how I found my LII setup. Obviously you just want a cheap 1354M but I found tons of them locally but decided to go for the LII setup instead for obvious reasons.

There's not a lot of salvage yards around here, most of them are full of old vehicles anyway.

Hopefully someone will know.

Thanks for the link

I went by the salvage yard and the front driveshaft out of the 91 Ranger is two pieces?

I think I'm just gonna have to take the thing back and just look for the correct t-case.

I read through the transfer case link from the previous page. It sounds like I should be able to swap the yoke from my existing electric t-case to the 1350 I bought.

Am I misunderstanding what he was saying?
