Transfer case

My XJ has 233k on it.. Other than a small leak that I believe is the output shaft seal I'm not having any problems with the NP242 select-trac. Should I just suck it up and plan to do a bearing/seal job on it regardless? Watched a few videos as I was bored and it doesn't seem to bad. Or should I wait till I think there's a reason to open it up?

Re: Transfer case

Replacing the output shaft seal is an easy job, no need to replace or rebuild for that reason if it's not making any weird noises. At least IMO.

Re: Transfer case

Is there no way to edit a previous post on this forum?

Anyway... I went to replace the output seal this morning and as soon as I got the oil slinger off I could see that's not where the leak is coming from.. it was pretty dry under there. So I cleaned the case off real good and will have to just keep checking to see if I can see where the leak is coming from.

Re: Transfer case

the o ring in the speedo gear is often a culprit as well.

Re: Transfer case

Took a drive.. looks like it might be the shifter o-ring.. so ordered that and a speedo o-ring as well.
