transfer case isue

I have an 1983 chevy K10 Scottsdale 4x4. It initially came with a diesel & 700r4, but the previous owner put in a 305 and a TH350 tranny. The transfer case is a 208c.

I checked the fluid about a week ago in the transfer case, because it has a small leak. When I opened the fill cap, it poured quite a lot of transmission fluid out, about 2 quarts or more. I couldn't understand how so much could get above the line.

Anyway a few days later I checked the transmission fluid and found it to be 3 quarts low. So I filled that to the correct line and the truck ran good.

Then I checked the transfer case again, suspecting the tranny fluid was moving from the transmission to the transfer case, and sure enough tranny fluid came pouring out. I quickly closed the plug.

This isn't normal is it ? If it isn't then how or what is causing this, and how serious is it repair wise and driving wise.

Thanks for anyone's help.

Re: transfer case isue

Easy fix... There's a seal on the input shaft of the t-case that is supposed to keep oil from transfering to the t-case from the trans. Go to your dealer, or preferred parts store, buy the seal, pull the t-case and replace the seal. Or if your not a do it yourselfer take it in and have it done. It's a fairly common occurance. When I was wrenching for GM they were done fairly often. Good luck..

I'm sure glad to hear it's an easy fix ! Thanks for your help. I've got a shop that's going to reseal the case, so I'll get them to do that as well.
