WOF Transmission & Transfer Case

Post by Al Rains » Thu Sep 04, 2008 3:03 pm

Hey Guys, I asked the question on the MB/GPW site with no response, so here goes. Will a WOF transmission/transfer interchange with a Willys or GPW? Also, will the shift handles interchange between WOF & Willys/ GPW? Thanks Al

I would say yes they do. The internals will not all interchange, but the boxes itself do. The shift handles are identical, apart from the well known slightly different shape of a GPW lever compared to a MB/M201 lever

Thanks Horst, I recently acquired one without the handles in excellent shape which I hoped I could use as a future backup for my MB or GPW. Al

A Hotchkiss/WOF gearbox and transfer case will slot into an MB/GPW without any problems, and vice-versa. The intermediate shaft on a Hotchkiss transfer case is larger and stronger, so as already stated, the transfer internals cannot be interchanged. I think the gearbox is identical and parts are interchangeable. I run an MB with a GPW gearbox and a Hotchkiss transfer case without any problems.

Horrocks is correct.... Gear and TX will drop in no problems -GPW/MB to M201... Many of the internals (G.B &T.X ) are interchangable but not everything....Ref the larger Intermediate shaft.

Hi guys, I am just browsing and have a question... I have an M201 and the Transfer case is leaking oil. It is coming from a shaft and nut assebly at the rear and the nut is loose, is this the intermediate shaft?? And is it a simple matter of tightening it? Thanks, Simon.

If I understand correctly you are refering to the large nut behind the Hand brake ,... Sounds like you need a new seel- seal ( that spelling looks well rong .. :? ) Since you will have to remove the handbrake it seems sensible to replace the seal as the are a weak point ..the Nut should be Chuffing tight ..and will have a cotter/split pin to fix it into position ..
