Set NP201 and NP205 Idler Gear End-Play from 0.000" to 0.002". Most Factory Shop Manuals specify an NP200 Idler Gear End-Play of 0.000" with no bearing preload.
The factory specification for Rear Output Shaft Bearing Preload on NP200 and NP201 Transfer Cases is 15 to 30 INCH-pounds.
TKA2053 Shim Kit has enough shims to precisely adjust the bearing end-play on one shaft. You should never need ALL the shims in a kit to adjust a single shaft, however, the remaining shims are usually not enough to adjust two shafts.
NP200 Transfer Cases have 3 components that require bearing adjustment; The upper Rear Output Shaft (Park Brake Shaft), The Lower Rear Output Shaft (for rear axle drive), and Idler Gear. For the NP200 I recommend you get 3 Shim Kits.
NP201 Transfer Cases have components that require bearing adjustment; The Rear Output Shaft and Idler Gear. For the NP200 I recommend you get 2 Shim Kits.
NP205 Transfer Cases only require shims for the Idler Gear. I recommend you order 1 Shim Kit for an NP205 Transfer Case.
