Tech Note 1: Must-Have Tool
QT2013 is the one must-have tool you will need to rebuild your NP205 transfer case. The idler shaft with the bearings, spacer, and shims, must be rolled into the case during reassembly. Keeping all those parts lined up without this tool is difficult to say the least.

Tech Note 2: To Use
The QT2013 is a slip fit in the idler bearings so you must support the Dummy Shaft with one hand as you drive in the Idler Shaft. If the tool is not kept in contact with the Idler Shaft, a shim may shift and get caught by the idler shaft.

Tech Note 3: NP200 or NP201
The Idler Shaft Bearings on NP200, NP201, and NP205 Transfer Cases are the same, however, the Idler Gear is wider in the NP205 so this tool will not work in a NP200 or NP201 Transfer Case. For NP200 and NP201, order QT2073.

    All I can say is it's a life saver specially when it comes to shimming the idler gear bearings.
