From Jim C on mud:

I think the problem you're seeing is that there was a running design change in the mainshaft and t-case gear. The splines on the shaft go farther forward on some. You have a gear w/ long internal spline, but a shaft with the slightly shorter splines. If the front 1/4" of spline is bored out of the gear, then the gear would go all the way into place.

I do. They are in my sister's garage in Westminster--still waiting for me to get my thing apart.

Anyone want to make an H55f disassembly date? I need to get those back to you, one of these days (only had them for well over a year now).

Dan

h55s are notorious for having issues with seating the shifter into the right spot in the fork assembly. I have heard of this before and it was always that the shifter was inserted in the wrong spot... You have the correct H55 shift lever and are not reusing the 4 speed one right? email me with more questions as I have two of these and have done this a few times...

Never considered this nor heard of it. The tranny did not come with the original lever, I am using the 4-speed.

Just to catch everyone up to speed. I've pulled the H55 out and robbed the IKEA Build of it's four speed & Marlin Crawl Box: http://forum.ih8mud.com/40-55-series...buildup-5.html (Post 89). I just couldn't bear to see that unused box sit any longer!!! In addition, I'm pulling the plug on the "drum parking brake" & will be converting to rear to disc (w/ PB). Anyone, need this unobtainable parking brake conversion: http://www.sor.com/sor/cat076.tam?pa...=cat076%2Etam? Scroll down to "Parking Brake Kit For Split Transfercase". In regards to the damaged splines on the H55, over the next couple of months I'll be looking for a new main shaft or ordering some McNamara gears: http://www.mcnamaradiffs.com.au/sixgear1.html.

I didn't realize that drum parking brake kit was so hard to find. I've got one on mine and it's great.

Yep, there are a few out there but they don't come up too often. I just stumbled upon this one. BTW, I just listed it in the Classified Section.

Dude, I think you should try the welding thing. I bet it'd work well. We have some talented welders here too that could probably pull it off. I be John would be up for the challenge...

I'll get back to it @ some point. My 40 has been sitting in the garage since July and I can stand it no longer!!! Got to get this thing rolling so that I can tend to the 80. Fortunately it's a tough rig and I'm not too worried about the abuse and neglect that I put it through. Each time I take it out it leans a little more. Last Saturday nearly caused Old Man Emu to kick the bucket!!! At least there's a new OME sitting on the shelf...
