About the NP261-HD

The NP261HD transfer case was originally manufactured by New Venture Gear and is a manual shift unit. This model was manufactured with left side drop output and has a low gear ratio of 2.72 to 1. This unit offers a combination of 2-high, 4-high, neutral and 4-low. 

The 261HD has a 32 spline front input, 32 rear slip output, female spline front output.

The original rear case half on 261HD units has a design issue where the oil pump rubs against the case causing pin-holes in the soft thin magnesium shell. These pin-holes allow the fluid to seep out and evaporate, leaving the transfer case without proper lubrication and cooling. This happens so gradually that you probably don't realize it until there has been sufficient damage done to the internal mechanisms. This is referred to as "pump rub."

Upgraded Case HalvesOur unique replacement case half completely eliminates the "pump-rub" issue. These case halves are made of heavy grade aluminum, not the thin magnesium used in the OE cases. In addition, the Transfer Case Express upgrade corrects a snap-ring groove issue and eliminates the need for as adapter plate. Thousands of customers have already told us how much they appreciate the durability and craftsmanship of our parts.
