how hot does a transfer case get?(shifter hot)

yeah paranoia will destroy ya! me being a newbie to transcase case rebuilds, i was wondering about my latest SYE job. i hate coincidences and yesterday on my longest (100 mile) run since the lift and SYE/CV the transcase shifter handle fell off the linkage. the rubber insert had all but faded away leaving it sloppy and loose. anyway i found a new insert at dealer and replaced. i noticed how hot the linkage was although i just got in off the freeway doing 65 on an 85 degree day. i know things get hot i'm just wondering if i f'ed up and lost the connection to the pump in the trans case. i was wondering how far the transcase would survive without the oil pump in operation? does anyone know? my bet would be - not too long! the pump picks up the tranny fluid and slings it on the two shafts and chain. also the speedo gears would get lubed- they are plastic and you would think they would fry right off. i hate to take the driveshaft, yoke and tail-housing off to look at the pump but i may have to for a piece of mind![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] unless someone can say it would have fried by now.
