UPDATE:  10-15-2017  :willynilly:

Admiittedly, Ive been procrastinating at finishing this rebuild.  I still have the rear diff that is leaking at the pinion flange, the power steering box is leaking, and I need to do the exhaust system a DT header and 2 exhaust with a new muffler.  And, the AC needs to be recharged after sitting in my garage for almost 4 years.  By the time Im done, I believe I will have over $6,000 in this complete rebuild.  :yikes:

I pulled the tranny and t-case out this morning.  Took me 3 hours 6 minutes (Im probably slower than the average) from the time I plugged in the air compressor to the time I got a shower, and sitting back down on the couch with a glass of Black Cherry Kool-Aid.  :gap:

I will remove the bell housing and pull the bad seal - and hopefully have a new input shaft seal by Tuesday, and replace it on Wednesday, and get it back installed.  :thumbs:

Gnarls.  :spin:
