Montes03d 05-05-2013 02:14 PM

Ok guys and gals my u joint went the other day (fixed now) but I noticed red fluid leaking fluid leaking from the transfercase I determined were its leaking from and its cracked right above the bottom bolt my question is would I need to replace the whole transfer case? or is the cone shaped part replaceble its self? Is it safe to be driving it also with the fluid leaking out?? Thanks in advance

you can replace that part, or you can swap it out for a SYE and longer drive-shaft if you are lifted.

You should probably remove your Tcase and clean it off in case more issues are present, that cone normally doesnt break unless your drive-shaft has BAD angles, so a SYE is probably your best route.

Looks like the output shaft seal is leaking ....clean it off with brake cleaner and check it again

Ok thank you i will would you guys suggest driving it or not till its fixed??

Depends on how bad its leaking ....granted it will get worse with time but if its a small leak id just keep an eye on it and drive it

You know, I think I have one of those cone units sitting around in my Garage from when I did my SYE.
Ill go check, but if you are interested, it can be yours for the cost of shipping from 95401

WOW. HA HA HA. You did a number on that. You cannot fix that. No matter what you do I doubt you will get it as good as the original cast piece. Just pay for the shipping from 2xs.
