Re: Still moaning a bit !!!!!

The T-case fluid you used, does it have the Chrysler specification? In the beginning Chrysler used ATF+4 in the NV247 T-case, but they found out it caused clutch chatter and they went with Mobil 424, which they gave there own fancy P/N and some $$ more.
So can it be that the T-case fluid you have used is not the right type for the 247?

Hi Frank,
That's my guess too as immediately after I changed it the chatter stopped but now (a few weeks later and colder) the chatter has returned. I can get the Mopar fluid from a dealer but am trying to get the mobil 424 more locally.
It's about $25 USD for 2000ml over here for Mopar which doesn't seem to bad to get rid of the chatter
Have you ever tried friction modifier in the T Case?
Cheers
Paul.

Just found the Amsoil alternative which is pretty easy to get hold of here.
It's the synthetic tractor hydraulic/transmission oil.

Re: Still moaning a bit !!!!!

Not sure about friction modifier in the T-case. It would allow some slippage in the progressive coupler and I can imagine that it would cause excessive heat buildup and wear. You can see the same on the vari-loks when the two wheels on the same axle are not at the same wear level or just different diameters. The vari-lok will wear out rapidly, because of the speed.difference between the two wheels.
So you better use original mopar stuff or an equivalent.
