Once Again Major Transfer Case Leakage

ok the seal for the rear drive shaft is not leaking at all it seems to be leaking down the spline and out the driveshaft, what do i do to the driveshaft, jam pack it full of grease or whatelse, is there something in there that has to be replaced. its tthe 8-10 inch long piece of driveshaft ahead of the front u-joint. also is leaks in another spot where a gasket isnt holding, its up in an out of the way place, could i just put some silcone on it to stop it leaking? other then that no questions. further updates...will be painted next monday or tuesday, then finish all the "little Stuff". like rear brakes...

<font face="Times New Roman">
<font color=green>If the fluid is coming down the rear driveshaft then it has to be the seal that's leaking. They really aren't that difficult to replace, just get the yoke off and pull the seal, then press a new one into place. As for the out of the way place that's leaking, I doubt that silicone will seal it, it will just make a mess.

[img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] There is a "soft plug" in the slider yoke that is leaking. You can take the yoke out and weld or braze the plug in place. That's the only way I know of to stop that problem. It isn't the grease seal, it's the yoke itself.[img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

[img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] My automatic transmission guy; who SHOWED ME this trick doesn't mess around with trying to coax the little pluggies to be good.[img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img] He has found through experience that the best fix is a good welding job. END of problem.[img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] My TH400 in our Suburban had a slip yoke that was leaking, and our NP205 transfer case had the same setup and IT LEAKED AS WELL.[img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img] weld-weld-weld-weld-we......well, you get the idea.[img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

Re: Once Again Major Transfer Case Leakage

[img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] Welding is like swimming and riding a bike.....you never fergit how. I was away from welding for EIGHT YEARS. When I opened the door to the storage room where my Millermatic was, there was this sort of metallic-sounding voice: "Dave? Is that you?" Out into the sunlight came the welder......strip the tinware off......dust it out real good.....replace some expendable items on the Tweco gun....new power cord that it always needed anyway, and I was OFF TO THE RACES! It was like I had never quit welding.[img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]
