How do I stop my transfer case from pumping oil into the 5 speed transmission

I am not familiar with your model.

If everything else is ok it could be there should be an oil flinger disc to keep the majority of transfer case oil away from the seal when in operation. If this has been left out the result could be as you described otherwise if there is no possibility of pressure/vacuum in either unit and the levels are ok there should be no exchange of oil.

The fact there is an exchange of oil and only the seal stands between the units then oil must be passing the seal. It would seem the seal is either not man enough for the job or is the wrong design. I don't know what an Fr9n seal looks like but the application demands either two seals back-to-back or a single seal providing a similar two spring-loaded lip design.

Is it possible the seal is being fitted the wrong way around...

Leaking Transfer Case

most Gear boxes with transfer cases have an oil seal between the main gear box and the transfer case so that the oil from the box is not passed through to the transfer case causing it to over fill. If there only a few spots under the car you have time to find exactly where the leak is. May be only an output shaft seal. Check the level of the gear box and transfer case your self It will be level with the filler plug. The oil used is either sae80-90 or oep 80-90. Check manufactures specs on this. If it turns out to be the seal between the two boxes then it will require the unit removal for seal replacement.

Replace oil seal on transfer box

You don't mention the make or model but normally you have to pull the gear box to replace the internal seal which stops oil moving from the gear box back. If however it is a output shaft seal remove the flange and remove the seal with the box still in the car.

How do I get 1990 Suzuki Escudo out of 4wd

I'm not sure if you are suffering 'wind-up'.Does your car seem to suffer a huge loss of power? If so, then try jacking up one wheel off the road.
Does the wheel spin around once it leaves the road surface? If so, then you just suffered 'wind-up'. That vehicle is not meant to stay in 4 wheel drive if not on mud or slippery surfaces. This will eventually cause catastrophic failure of the transmission, usually resulting in a smashed transfer box chain.
Once any 'wind-up' has been dealt with having released it from jacking one wheel off the ground, then select 2wd and road-test the vehicle. It should now be fine.

If the vehicle still won't deselect from 4wd, then you will need to check the transfer box for fault.
The transfer box and gearbox oil should regularly be checked for any signs of oil cross-contamination. There is an oil seal between these two boxes, and which keeps their respective oil from leaking through to each other's boxes. If your transfer box oil is reddish in colour, or shows a large excess of oil when removing the oil top up bung, then you likely have an oil seal issue.

Typical issues on that particular model are:

Transfer box chain failure.
Transfer box [internal] oil seal leakage.

Other things to keep an eye on with that particular model are:
Power steering pump oil seal.
Front wheel bearings. (increased failure when fitting wide profile tyres).
Steering track rods and track rod ends.(increased failure rate when fitting wide profile tyres)

Easy entry/break-in method: Remove right, rear light cluster with philips screwdriver. Using bobby pin or short wire, randomly short circuit visible wires within connector block until central locking automatically opens door locks.

I cant seem to find where to top up the gearbox oil on my 83 land cruiser

I dont believe thatford ********, ---get under the cruiser half way along the gear box on the left hand side you will find a bung plug 1/2way up the gearbox that is your filler and oil just dribbleing out that hole is the level.----at the back of the gearbox but attatghed to it is the transfer case this is made of aluminium,at the back of this slight y to the left about 1/2 way up is another bung that is the filler for the transfer case and also the level ,NOW LISTEN GOOD if you havea hose conecting the gearbox ******** to the transfer ******** thats good it just means the previos owner ,.or one of them had their head screwed on . W hat happens is this, strange as it seems the transfer case oil gets forced up into the gearbox,with the end result that the gearbox gets over full and the transfer gets low on oil,what we have been doing for many years is putting a bypass hose between the two fillers and as the oil gets forced up into the gear box it gravity feeds back down into the transfer case,,,so if you cant find the bungs but you have that hose you now know what it is all about, -------please let me know if that solves your problem, I know I am right but it is nice to be told
