It's a dry heat!
Could be what's left of a shim washer.
My initial plan was to just replace the rear cover. I never planned to do a full rebuild. Now I would love to just take it apart enough to find out what is wrong and hopefully repair it, without messing anything up. If I had more special tools and experience I would do a full rebuild.You're disassembling it assbackwards
I agree if you mean fill the VCU with gorilla glue. Thought about just drilling a hole in the case and filling it up. Instantly locked VCU!Put it all back together, fill with fluid...add Gorilla Glue....
Does that mean the car is pretty much FWD 99% of the time?I agree if you mean fill the VCU with gorilla glue. Thought about just drilling a hole in the case and filling it up. Instantly locked VCU!
Not sure if I am thinking about this correctly but If your tires never slip, the power never get's to the rear end. To activate the viscous coupling there needs to be a significant difference in rpm between the front and the back. If all the tires are traveling straight forward then they all rotate at the same rate. If you are going around corners at a decent rate without slipping your rear end should be tracking the front end.
So, the VCU only sends power to the rear end when the following occurs:
Driving in the snow
Driving in Mud
Pushing your car to the limit so hard around a corner that you lose traction at the front or back.
Bad launch causing a tires to slip.
In a parking lot, cutting the wheel so hard that your rear tires navigate a smaller radius than your front tires.
I guess it is no wonder that 9/10 of our vcu's are not working properly and nobody seems to notice until they see the goo.
Definitely true for everyone with a blown VCU( again about 9/10 of us).Does that mean the car is pretty much FWD 99% of the time?
Bummer. That means the VR4/RTTT is pretty much a heavy FWD-TT 99% of the time.Definitely true for everyone with a blown VCU( again about 9/10 of us).
Probably true for those with a working VCU also. Just sent the ninja a request to see an awd dyno plot of the system. My guess is that initially the front wheels have all of the power until the coupling kicks in, because they are not all rotating against the same surface. I think the power split only occurs after slipping, although I am no expert either.
