    Hey guys,

    I have had a very leaky NP208 T-case lately and after this last off road trip, it is even worse. I noticed that the majority of the fluid seems to be coming from the adapter housing area between trans/t-case. Aren't there two seals on each side of the adapter (one for trans output shaft and one for t-case input shaft area)? There isn't supposed to be ANY fluid inside the adapter, right? How hard are these seals to replace? I am getting ready to drop the trans pan anyways, since I got a deep B&M pan, so loss of fluid to do this is no big deal. I may also have the t-case resealed while it's all apart, since it has been leaking for a while too...

    Reason I am pretty sure that it's leaking into the adapter is that when I checked my trans fluid level last night, it was almost two quarts low! No wonder it was shifting so crappy on my way home last weekend! /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    ah i know what your problem is...you have that pesky 208 in there...melt that thing down and use it as a paper weight and drop a doubler in there /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
