I make engine noises when I post. Eventually, the modding bug kicked in and he started upgrading the truck while taking it to the drag strip and later to autocross events on weekends. It looks like you have a classic case of a almost locked-up viscous clutch. All wheel drive is automatic and has no external controls. Once core is ready for pick-up, visit and fill out the Core Return form. Thank You Dave for all your contributions you are a huge asset to this forum.
Syclone The Syclone is a veritable street eater. All of our transfer cases come with a 6 month parts only no labor warranty, meaning we will take care of you as our customer if you are sent a part from us that is wrong or not in working order. Just need to know for a project. How can I tell that the Transfer case I have from a Syclone is good when it is not in a truck? All Syclones and Typhoons had a 4-speed. The resistance to sheer causes the plates to transmit torque at the needed ratio.
I'm certain the chain was stretched. Someone read, understood, and came up with an answer to their problem. What's so damn special you're asking? Auto magazines compared its acceleration favorably to a variety of sports cars including the Corvette and - in a memorable comparison test in Car and Driver magazine - a Ferrari. I had never heard that info and it is much appreciated. DaveP Re: Syclone Typhoon Transfer Case swapping. Since 1919, Standard Motor Products has engineered a full line of engine management products, including ignition parts, sensors and on-board computers. Not an auto repair expert? They scrapped the van, instead of fixing it there was so much damage.
I may have one from and s-series pickup somewhere. When he heard about the Syclone combining turbo power with all wheel drive and a pickup truck body, he was completely sold. Syclone - Pilots Two built. So there is no telling where is it now. You have to eye-ball it. The big cases must be split, and the guts removed, to gain access to this snap ring. Someone read, understood, and came up with an answer to their problem.
Guess that is why it acted like a 4x4 in the parking lot! The trickier task is to get the trans at the correct attitude for re-installation. Not a huge deal but was annoying and I wanted to get it fixed. If an e-mail address is provided, a confirmation will be received once form is submitted. It is retained into the ring gear by a large snap ring. Guess that is why it acted like a 4x4 in the parking lot! Do not disassemble the core. Yes, any 27 spline yoke would work for the test. The truck is still powered by a turbocharged V6, but instead of the factory 4.
The Syclone was the first production truck to receive a 4-wheel. Too high and the case hits the body. Keep in mind Trans-Am race cars run a live axle and are incredibly fast. To add safety and structural rigidity, the truck is equipped with an eight-point cage that extends through the cab and into the bed area. Resistance can vary depending on temperature, mileage in service, and how fast you count off the seconds. It's not bad pulling the t-case once you find the body sheet metal holding it in place and pound it out of the way but I like to take care of things while I have them torn apart. Be cautious of reusing the chain from this case.
A all wheel drive transfer case splits torque with 35% forward and 65% to the rear wheels. I have used them, and was very pleased with the service. When I got them side by side my buddy realized the output shafts were different. I thought it was more like 60-40 or around there. Other features include upgraded brakes, a limited slip rear differential and sport modifications to the standard suspensions. It can also lead to parts breakage.
Made it out of college with a couple of degrees I did want to give an update even though it has been a while. The engine is a modified version of the Vortec engine found in the standard Jimmy, which originally produced 190 hp. The tail shaft housings are also interchangeable. What more needs to be said? The output shaft is now exposed. What is a transfer case you are possibly wondering? The viscous clutch is filled with a high viscosity fluid which flows through the slots in the plates. I have heard of these units being swapped into other vehicles - not firsthand knowledge though.
That makes for a very light and very grippy wheel and tire combo, and one that also happens to look quite mean sitting beneath fiberglass wide body panels in both the front and rear. In the rear, the stock leaf spring suspension was replaced with a a custom three-link setup with a panhard rod and trick Ohlins coilovers with Hyperco springs. At the time, the Syclone was one of the quickest production vehicles of any type, capable of doing 0-60 in the mid four second range. Either way, I'll probably run it till something breaks then I'll just replace whatever it is that broke. Just wanted to let you know. The Typhoon was based on the 1991.
