    WTD Hilux transfer box for project

    Bought a Hilux project with a blown transfer box. I'm now finding out why it was a project. Transfer case is a nightmare to find.

    Toyota Hilux 3L 5spd 4x4 1980 | Trade Me

    And to be extra helpful he sold the transfer case seperate to someone else for $1
    2 x Hilux Transfer cases RF1A and VF1A | Trade Me

    Has anyone got a VF1A transfer case or know where I can find one before the mrs kills me for spending too much on a truck I can't fix?

    Id be surprised if he actually did sell it for dollar, ring him up and find out.
    also am reasonably sure the transfer cases are pretty interchangeable.

    No shit he actually sold it for a dollar, I even told him I wouldn't take the truck without it but he'd already been paid for the Tcase and was too scared to pull out.

    The one he had was broken due to snapped driveshaft so not a huge loss.

    The important thing is that it has the range lever in the top of the transfer case, later ones go through the main gearbox

    I have a transfer box on a five speed bag...five speed is stuffed...transfer case should be good...vehicle was 80 or 82 diesel. I also have one still in a 80 or 82 4 speed [wrecking]...I guess they be the same.
    Which is worse, ignorance or apathy...I don't know and don't care.

    It's a bit tricky cos the motor and trans is from a early 90's surf so may not be as easy as it would seem

    Yeah great to find so much help,
    that's the original Hilux transfer case, looks quite different from the one in it. I should actually change the thread to WTD Toyota Surf Transfer box

    Have just pm'd him. My next option is to buy a complete later R150f gearbox with the Rf1A transfer and wire up the push button 4wd

    Chain are sought after as they have a lower low range.
