I only have trouble with heat when I am above 50 miles an hour for more than an hour in the hotter parts of the the dead of winter, I dont think I have ever seen the gauge get over 150.
The diff pump and other pumps used in industry for heavy oils, can be gotten for a bit of cash...then theres a cooler and lines and whatever you need to run it and hopefully a thermostat so you dont try pumping gear oil when its -20 degrees outside and the stuff couldnt overheat if it wanted too...the whole drivetrain is noticeably held back by the heavy stuff in all the gear boxs and diffs at temps below 0...I run 75W-90 Eaton synthetic lube. Since many have reported that they have run 60 MPH or more for hours at a time, it seems that the expense and work that go into doing a cooler would be better directed to correcting the discrepency in the case that causes it to overheat...less to screw up in the long run and less to haul it would be stock, if that matters, instead of modified to try to band aid a problem...then also there is the long term viability of using a pump/cooler instead of removing the problem causing the heat...will to tight bearing clearances or other problem(s) in long term use cause problems that will eventualy cause the t-case to need a rebuild or a change to a different case, like a 205 or something...if it is rebuilt correctly, as has been shown by several members, the cooler/pump would be unnecessary...if a 205 or other was used, same story...

I wholeheartedly agree Jon. I know in the past though there has been much discussion about not having a dedicated gear oil pump available. But apparently there is one.

I haven't seen any thorough documentation showing what exactly has been done to "correctly" rebuild the transfer case. Since mine is ready to be reassembled, I'd like to see what others have found.

Default Anybody else have a mule?

About a hundred million years ago I posted a very ideal oil pump that was compatible with the temps and oil we have. It was from Grainger and was not to expensive. You would just need a way to drive it. I think it had a 1/4 inch shaft.... It was on the old site way back when. I was bored at work one day and wandered through all the catalogs we carry...

There's a really good step-by step reassembly section in the on-line manuals.
