    Posted: 21 Sep. 2022 at 4:57pm
Hello,

Next step of my journey of chasing oil leaks …

 Both output shafts for the 2 shifter of the transfer case are leaking. Are these standard oil seal rings and if so, does anyone have the right size?
Also, how do I get the old seal rings out … case is still in the car.

Thanks
Klaus

They are standard oil seals, available from most Jeep part suppliers.

It would be very difficult to pull, or install, the seals with the shafts in place, and I don't know how in the world you would be able to do this with the unit still in the vehicle.   
If you can't get there in a Jeep you don't need to be there

Thanks,

So I will need to pull the transfer case to replace these seals … guess for now I will need to live with the leak, then.

I haven’t tried Joes puller, but I seriously thought of buying one if I ever need to change those again.
You may want to contact him and see if they work with the shaft in. His pullers are here https://www.thecj2apage.com/forums/transfer-case-seal-pullers_topic48599.html

The question would still be, can I remove and install the seals with transfer case in place even with Joe‘s pullers …

I haven't gotten to the first one yet, but his puller isn't big, if you can ge the front drive shaft and flange off, then the puller should fit easily

I think he is talking about the seals for the shift rails.

Those were a bitch to get out with the transfer case on the bench.   Does Joe offer a puller for these ?

Yep. Sorry for the misunderstanding. The seal rings for the shift rails, that’s what I need to change

Yea I'm tearing down a spare TC and I see what you are talking about. I can't imagine even trying to get the seal out with it in, I don't personally believe it to be possible but maybe someone's done it
