Customer Question
I have a big...

I have a big problem. I have a chevrolet tahoe in 2004, with a transfer case np 246. Need for replacement of clutches. I ordered the friction. But I live in Russia, on the peninsula of Kamchatka. We do not have Chevrolet dealers here. And I do not have a special tool Kent Moore J-44295. Is there another way to set the clutch clearance without using the J-44295 tool?

Mechanic's Assistant: Okay, I'll connect you to the mechanic to go over that information regarding your Chevrolet Tahoe. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know?

Yes. Will the mechanic answer on the posted website?

If your transfer case does not have a oil restrictor plate it is a second design model. In that case you absolutely need the J-44295 because the 2nd design clutch plates will stack up different than a 1st design that has a restrictor plate.
