    Mine is leaking like mad in the Burb. I put a bead of RTV around the case before install btu I guess that wasn't good enough. Anyone have throughts on what I can do to seal it up? Didn't use a gasket when I put the 208 in cause well I didn't have one and had no way to go get one.

    There should be a seal and a gasket...so I'd drop the T-case and install a new seal and a new gasket.

    Silicone will work. I sealed up mine by making a constant bead around the outside edge of the adaptor and around each bolt hole...
