Transfer case ATF

Drained about 3 qts out of transfer case to change it, replaced it with Merc5, which is all I had, now wont stop dripping from drain plug, drain and refill with reg non synthetic? I tried "everything", different plug\gasket combos, etc but wont stop dripping. Main question is the trans case and the tranny separate, as in will the trans fluid drain into the transfer case or are they separate?

They're completely separate vessels. The tranny requires synthetic ATF. The t-case can take either synth or dino ATF.

Look carefully at the case around the drain plug, esp. directly below it. It's not hard to overtighten the plug and crack the case; happened with one of our 1356's.
