i got a lead on a t90 tranny with a dana 18 transfer case and borg warner overdrive "ready for use" with all shifters for $125. Is Borg Warner overdrive good unit got 54 PU with 6-226?
Good because when working well they are easy to use, just lift off the accelerator briefly to upshift, downshifts automatically. Bad because it can't be used when in 4wd and they are more complex than the warn style. It would be possible to put both a warn and a borg warner on a transfer case for double overdrive though.
I don't have any info on the BW overdrive, but for that price for the whole package, I'd be on it in a heart beat. My O/D is a saturn. If the BW unit works as well, you'll be quite pleased.
Rancho at one time made an adapter to fit the BW OD unit to the Dana 18 transfer case, required the rear driveshaft to be shortened. It worked very well, but could not be used in 4WD.
