: I have a leak from the transfer case out the front driveshaft yoke. Do I need a special tool to remove the pinion nut, yoke and oil seal. The pinion nut seems to be on there pretty good. If so where can I get these. Any help appreciated.
The nut is just tight. Put trans in 1st and transfer in 4WD Low. Rear wheels on ground and parking brake on. Chock rear wheels and try again. If you have one I found a air impact tool works best. On seals. Same used frount and rear. Try to get one with the spring in the rubber. Cone goes inward. Some come with a soft washer. (optinal) Be sure to get all of the old seal out. I use a seal puller (spacial tool any parts store has them) Be sure you drive the new one home flush and all the way. I use a large socket that is the same size and a rubber mallet. (don't cursh it) I have found at times the only way to remove the old seal is with a slide hammer. Be sure to use the 3 hook attachment. Bill
