While checking my transfer case seal, I noticed some play in the transfer case when I push up on the drive shaft. Should the transfer case be ridgid or is a little play up and down ok?

Hi, there is a small amount of up, and down play, as the driveshaft has to work back, and forth, on the splined slip joint in this particular area. There is a bushing in the rear of the transfer case as well. Between these two things, the play is normal. May seem a bit too much, but normal. Good luck...Coop

Need to replace the transfer case seal


I will only guess

You most likely will have to remove the
transfer case, unless it is on the back
output shaft & you can get to it

You already knew that

You won't have to strip it clean,
if that is your question.

Just remove the yoke & whatever ,
to do the seal.

Leak coming from transfer case. It leaks right were the rear drive live goes into the transfer case. Replaced the seal once. Was leak free for about a week, and now it is worse than before. Possible...


the trans case is not under a pressure, the fluid is a free flow oiler that gets slung around by chain and gears. are you sure it was the right seal ? DIdnt damage it on install !!? did you over fill the case ? Check rear spline on case and make sure it is not sloppy movement back and forth, up and down. if it is then seal is getting pushed all over and oil seaps past. but you would have a vibration while driving that you would notice. is ther a groove on rear slip yoke that is riding on seal groove. after reading your question again, are you talking about the drive shaft going into the transfercase or the main trans/ transfercase mating area? What is a rear drive live? rear driveline!! as in driveshaft?

Transmission fluid leaking back, 1988 Ford Bronco


your output seal on the tranny or input seal on your transfer case is bad. you have to pull your transfer case to tell. this is a pretty straight forward job. block wheels. put transfer case in neutral. drop front and rear drive lines.diconnect transfer case shift linkage. there is a short commponent connecting the trans to the transfer case. the bolt on either end face each other. remove the bolts to the transmission. the transfer case is heavier than it looks, i suggest getting help. pull back on the transfer case until it will drop down. it will pull out a bit because of the trans output shaft. replace what will probibly turn out to be the tranny output shaft seal and reassemble in reverse order.

What do i need to do to convert my c-6 4x4 tranny into a 4x2 tranny


get a 4x2 tranny, and replace the 4x4 tranny and 4x4 transfer case with it, you will also need to remove your front drive shaft, that operates your front FWD, and replace the drive shaft for the rear axel.....

Find a good Salvage yard and see about trading parts to convert to 4x2
