is this true? i thought the xfer case had an input shaft from the transmission which means any leakage would fall out the bottom of the case, not travel from one case to another.

Well guys I decided I’m gonna go with gl4 redline in the transfer case because if there is a leak between the 2 it won’t hurt anything. I hope this is a good decision wouldn’t you guys think.

True story, bro. If you unbolt the transfer case from the transmission, the oil spills out. The rear housing of the 4x4 trans is wide open.

In fact, there is a slight difference between the t-cases that go behind an auto, and a manual. On one, (the auto version) there is a little trough that holds transmission oil at the front t-case seal.

I had once had a rebuilt trans fry an input bearing because oil leaked out of the transmission into the t-case. Input bearing was dry, and the t-case was overfilled. Transfer through the seal seems the only logical explanation.
