Transfer Case Tail Cone, Yoke Seal Replacement Project
I had changed out U-joints last fall, upon doing so with my neighbor I developed a leak of transfer case fluid at the yoke. I was told I just need a new seal. Fair enough, I got a seal for it. Then I read that if its coming apart, I might as well replace the brash bushing in the tail cone.
I picked up a bushing as well... Anyone have advice or no no's before we tackle this?
From what I'm gathering I think is our plan of attack,
Pull driveshaft out
Pull tail cone off TC (3 bolts)
Remove old bushing
Put new brash bushing in the freezer for a couple hours
Put tail cone in a big pot of boiling water
Pull cold brash bushing from freezer and drop into position inside hot tail cone (I guess this helps 'em to fit perfect due to expansion and contraction)
Re-assemble tail cone with new bushing and new seal
Install Drive Shaft
Sound about right???
