The Master Rebuild Kit

Our master rebuild kit has been assembled for our customer's rebuilds as well as our own. It is the most complete kit we've seen anywhere and features all the consumable and wear item components.

Included in the 242 master kit is the chain, which we do not consider to be an optional rebuild item like so many others do. This is the highest grade chain available.

Rebuild Requirements

It is very common for our customers to do top-level rebuild work, using good methods and by following our included instruction guide.

We suggest the rebuilder have access to a set of snap ring pliers, and a small arbor press, in addition to standard shop tools.

NP242 Versions

NP242's are consistent from 1988-1993. Beginning in the 1994 model year, New Venture changed the front input bearing from a wide version to a narrow version. By 1995, the changover was complete, but individuals win 1994 model year transfer cases can't always be certain of which bearing their transfer case may actually have, unless they pull the front bearing retainer or even fully disassemble the NP242 and check this input gear bearing.

The early NP242 uses a BD50-8 bearing, measuring 24mm wide

The later NP242 uses a 6010-N bearing, measuring 16mm wide



The earlier style input gear, top, has a wide bearing journal. The later style input gear, bottom, has a narrow bearing journal.


For a more in-depth discussion of these versions, see this page.

Other Components

Essentially all parts for the 242 are available new and affordably so. For anything not shown, contact us.

but for just putting on a SYE you don't need a press as far as i recall.
