    Replacing Front seal np 241 Q\'s

    My front seal on my X-fer is shot and i need to replace it. Is this the job as the rear? Or does this this have a crush sleeve?

    Theres no crush sleeve. Its just like doing the one in there rear other than the fact that its just a bit more of a pain in the ass to get the old one out.

    Will work for beer, parts and tools.

    Damn dude, you have problems. My x-fer is just leaking out of the front shaft. Does that yoke just come out like the rear? I seem to remember seeing a big friggn nut holding it on. Kinda like an axles' yoke. Thanks guys

    Aiight, I did this a couple of weeks ago, and Brandon was there to witness it. It wasn't hard, but took a while. Kinda odd angles to pry that seal out. Yes, there is a big nut that you have to loosen. Get a bigass breaker bar and I think 1 1/8 socket. I had to use my legs to break it free. after that pry that seal up. I used a screwdriver and a hammer. Getting the old stuff out is hard, putting it all back in is easy. Have fun.

    Thanks, I did the rear one about a month ago, now its time to do the front. Looks like the warranty ran out on my X-fer case seals this month:)

    Hey yield, yeah the 241 case is filled with ATF. If your tranny output shaft seal is leaking it will allow the tranny fluid level to drop and increase your t-case level, to the point where it will start coming out of your slip yoke relief whole.

    ftn96, the post above was not for you!!! kinda sounded like a smart a$$ remark, didnt see your post until after made the other reply!! i am a jack arse....

    yeah, i need tot fix that seal, i never realized the two made a connection so that the fluid from the trans can reach the t-case..there for a while, i was thinking i was over filling the t-case, but there is really no way!!



    AIRBORNE!!
