all fluids changed less than 1,000 miles ago. major service already done. FDS already done (see signature)It is not the t/case causing the heat in the passenger compartment, it is the engine and tranny, leave the t/case alone. By the way, when was the last time you changed all your t/case, tranny and diff fluids. Might want to check out my major service list at the top of this section and do it along with the front drive shaft.
Point taken. I'll just crank up the A/C a little more and not worry about the TC. Thanks :beer:The other reason I say a cooling unit is not required is, back in the late 60's and early 70's, I ran full size modified Blazer with the 203 t/case, which is a chain drive, which are usually the hottest, and each of them had a temp sensor and in Arizona, they never ran over the 160 range.
Good advice.I have never heard of it or the need for a t/case cooler. If your geas and bearing are you, you run a 85/140 gear oil and change it every 20,000, you don't need additional cooling cause it has never been an issue for this t/case.
Thanks for doing that.Call Justin, over at lucky 8. He's had them for a few years now. But I do not know of anyone running one.

Here is one guys take on it, with a write up. www.discovery2.co.uk - Transfer box Sump
yeah, my old M3 had a finned diff, I assume the factory wouldn't spend the money to engineer something no one would ever see if it was a waste;Thanks for doing that.
I wish the write up did indeed have a before and after. The guy who helped me with my heads and let me use his tools at his shop does work on VW's built for racing- both off road and on road applications. Around his shop I noticed that all the performance/racing diffs had cooling fins. So it must do something, but whether this little cover makes much of a difference who knows. I might rig up something to see what my transfer case temp is on this next long haul, based on that I might try one of these covers out and let you know if it made a difference or not.
