Transfer case making noise no oil
Hi guys My name is Tom . I am a retired GM worke. l hope u can help me. I live in Michigan and just drove to fort Myers in my truck.
My truck specs are ,
2006 chevy Sliverado duramax HD2500 6.6 turbo . Mileage 126,000. Truck has been used for towing a 36 ft trailer when I bough5 it last year. I REALY donít two much and I have only put on maybe 3,000 . Miles in the last year.
I thought I had bad u joints on the way to Florida last week. After getting here she starting making more noise. Took it to my buddies and he pulled the the transfer case out . The model number is of case is 263XHD. There was zero oil in it. There are no holes in the case . We opening it up tonight to see metal shaving in the bearings and a little slug in it but other wise that was it.
Any suggestions on where to get it rebuilt round fort Myers. I just started reading about it . I read that there are pump upgrade kits for it but is there anything else I need to know as upgrades as I prefer to get one with the upgrades done to it. I saw guys replace the bearing with metal races as these have plastic ones. Please advise my with any help you can I be grateful.
My buddy a mechanic is that something that we can do?
