Default Is the transfer case independent of the transmission?

Hola and greetings from Guatemala!

Can one of you guys help me figure out if the transfer case from a 96 Suzuki Carry van (Every?) is an independent unit, integrated into the manual transmission, or relying on the transmission to form an oil seal?

I found a good deal on one for a project, but I'm not planning on using the motor or transmission, just the transfer case and front/rear diffs. Also, what's the suspension like on these? Leaf and solid axles front and rear?

I would like to know this stuff before I go check out the car. It's not too far away, but it's also in one of the most dangerous cities in Guatemala, so I'd rather not go there if it'll be a waste of time.

Thanks all.

Welcome to the forum. From what I can find the 4wd transferbox bolts directly onto the transmission so is not independent. Sounds like you could do with an old Samurai transferbox .

Bummer, I was hoping to use the existing setup and drive the transfer case via drive shaft from a liter bike engine output shaft.

I might just have to go back to my original plan and use a standard RWD carry van. I'm stripping the body off the chassis to build an off-road buggy, so I was pretty happy to find they came in 4wd.

Though, I suppose I could run an adapter to the transmission input shaft instead...

I'd end up with 30 gear ratios to choose from, and 6 reverses.
