Merchant Automotive Input Gear Bearing, 261HD 263HD 261XHD 263XHD, 32 Spline
This is the Input Gear Bearing for a GM NP246, NP261HD, NP263HD, NP261XHD or NP263XHD transfer case found in 2001 to 2007 GM Duramax vehicles as well as some 1998 to 2007 GM half ton trucks and SUVs. This is a brand new replacement GM transfer case Input Gear Bearing not a used or refurbished unit.
The Input Gear Bearing fits new NP261HD and NP263HD transfer cases with 32-spline input shafts, all NP261XHD and NP263XHD transfer cases with 29-spline input shafts as well as NP246 transfer cases with 32-spline input shafts.
NOTE: New input shafts do not come with this bearing so it will be necessary to purchase one separately to properly install a new input shaft in your transfer case.
While wrenching on your transfer case it is also a good time to inspect the transfer case for the dreaded “pump rub” issue and upgrade to the Merchant Automotive Transfer Case Pump Upgrade to ensure a long and healthy transfer case life.
