I want to start out by saying this whole forum - guys helping each other - thing is pretty damn cool!
So here`s what I`m up against now. I took my truck into the transmission shop. Seems the trans is fine, but the transfer case has been leaking where it bolts together, there is too much lash in the transfer case, and this is why the truck often clunks into gear or struggles to shift when I accelerate quickly.
I changed the front and rear u-joints (the rear was especially sloppy) hoping that would fix the problem. It didn`t. I changed the rear seal on the transfer case, and then had the transmission power flushed and new fluid put in.
Anyway, after all that, the transmission shop guys tell me the trans is fine, but there be dragons in the transfer case. I`ve never seen the inside of one. I have a manual, and am looking at it. I know I haven`t specifically identified the problem, but if anyone has some experience with something that sounds similar to what I`ve got going on, send out a holler. All ideas and thoughts welcomed and appreciated.
