Does this look right (transfer case)

Should the main shaft splines in the TC be flush here in the pic or is it okay?

(this is looking inside from where the speed gear goes)

OK i continued to take apart my transfer case and this is what i found.....

The chain is trying to roll back up the gear shaft causing the damage to the inside of the transfer case, and is why i hear a loud popping noise when i put it in 4x4 mode from the looks of it. Also, the picture of the gear which is grinding on the wall is an issue. I think the main gear shaft is not situated right but cant figure out why, maybe because the C clips were not in the right spots?? ANYYYY help, advice, etc would be helpful !!

Transfer Case

Just wondering why you tore it down? My T/C makes lots of gear noise (howling)in low range, but ok in high range. Should I be concerned?

My two cents by looking at that picture would be to say your chain looks very stretched and loose. I know when I took my T-case apart my chain did not have much slack in them and I know they aren't supposed to either. It almost looks as if the chain is so loose that the teeth on the gears can't grab it and they may create your popping noises and why it wouldn't move. Hope someone else can chime in and help you figure this out.

p.s. it would also help us out if you gave us specs and background on your jeep. Thanks

That may be the problem but how can you tell if its TOO loose? All the pics i see show the chain hanging down quite a bit like this one....
