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.
