I don't have the time or funds to tear into it right now. Sounds like a good spring project though, new 4 speed and TC.

I had CTS do my 78 tranny and t-case. I believe it was $1500 for the pair.
I droped a rear pinion due to a loose nut, sounded like gravel. Until the rear wheels locked up at 20 mph and I stopped faster than the 40 ever had before.

When that happened to me, I discovered a rock had knocked my drain plug off. Plugged it up, refilled with 90wt and all was well. You might want to check your fluid level just to make sure it's okay.

Well here is what was wrong with my T-Case. The guy that I bought the FJ from in Kansas City had rebuilt the T-Case prior to me buying the rig. Well apparently he didn't get the nut tightened down enough on the output shaft of the transmission because it came off and was bouncing around in the T-Case. It beat up the inside of the case pretty good and put some minor damage on a couple of gears.

The shop rebuilt the T-Case for me which included getting the kit, cleaning up the gears, machining the case so now I don't have to worry about using gaskets to set my clearances. Drove it home yesterday and the transmission and T-Case is super smooth and quiet now. That missing nut was also causing a pretty nasty clunk in the transmission when you let out the clutch.

Ahh, the loose nut. Usually it's behind the wheel.
