Transfer case leak

Ok, I have been working On my transfer case and I don't have an extension housing, in place of it I have some sort of wheel that is going over the mainshaft and prevents me from getting to the rear output shaft seal, I would like to know what it is and why it's there and how to take it off


Thanks, I have a 2004 wrangler X 4.0, NV3550 tranny, and an unknown transfer case apparently.... I will post a pic tomorrow

I have the same set up on mine as well, same year model jeep, im not 100% on this so dont hold me to the fire on this if im wrong . But im goin to have to say its some sort of tailshaft balance. As for removal im in the same boat as you. Kinda need to know for when i do a SYE in the future.

If your Np231 has an SYE like a Hack-N-Tap, it has a flange that needs to be removed with a puller.

That's not it, I don't have an SYE it's still a slip yolk, when I go out for a cigg I'll take a pic and post it, hopefully this will bring insight to the situation a bit more than a fuzzy description

Some 231s have a harmonic balancer. You can buy or rent a puller to remove the balancer at which point you should be able to see your seal that's leaking. You can rent a puller from most any auto parts store.

Ok it's called a harmonic stabilizer, and apparently needs a special tool to remove

Don't use the Chrysler harmonic stabilizer removal tool, doesn't work, autozone has a 2/3 5ton puller that will have the reach and the capacity to pull that bitch right off, the trick is getting it back on....
