Borg Warner BW4472 Transfer Case

Borg Warner BW4472 Transfer Case

Postby 1lowcab [OP] » January 28th 2018, 8:05pm

Found this on Youtube The other day and thought I'd share it.

I found it very interesting to see the insides of the bw4472, I've rebuilt 2 np136 t-cases and it was neat to see the differences between the two.

However I would NOT split the case halves like he does. :naughty:

Those things are dang near welded together. I rebuilt mine and it made the noise worse.. :shifty: The bearings in there weren't that bad either, so I suspect that its either the chain or the viscous thingy in there. I gave up and put a 233 in. Has anyone ever found a chain ( IN STOCK ) for those? TurnNburn gave me another one will see if I can make a good one out of the two some day.

Those parts are a bit tricky to find. That's the only video that I can find on one of the best cases made.
How many sensors, fuses or computers does a Bw4472 need? Zero.
