    My transfer case is leaking from the very bottom. Very minorly. where is the most common place for a t-case to leak.

    Keep the shiny side up, and the greasy side down.

    Good question 'cause mines doing it too. I should tear it apart and stop all those annoying leaks. Does anyone know of any seal/gasket for the 208C?

    The thing is is that there is barley a leak. It is coming from the dead bottom where the lowest bolt is. I just wonder when things are going to god damn stop leaking on my truck!!!!

    Keep the shiny side up, and the greasy side down.

    Did the seal dry out? Don't they sell some "magic in a can" that swells seals, so the leak stops?

    I had the same problem w/ my 241. A buddy of mine who rebuilds trannies said that the problem was a bad design at the factory. Apparently the seal faces are smooth and don't hold a seal well. His remedy was to throw out the gasket, scibe the faces in the middle of the machined surface (for a place for the silicone to grab) and orange goo'd it. It fixed all of the leaks except one. But that's a crack in the case. Eventually I'll get that welded (when it's warmer out). This is for an aluminum case. Will it work on your cases?? Don't know, but it's worth a shot.

    Why do people keep calling it a Bronco!!!!!
