'87 np 208 leak


Junior Member
First of all I'd like to say hi to everyone. I think it's cool that there is a forum like this where guys help each other out. My problem is that my transfer case has a bad leak on the passenger side where the support rod attaches to the transer. Yes I have a th400 auto by the way. It's leaking from the seal where the transer splits in two halves. My question is can I just take out the transfer, split it in half and put in a new gasket. Or do I have to take the tailshaft out, mess with all those needle bearings and then split it in two? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I want to know what I'm getting myself into before I start. Thanks :)
