Transfer case output yoke -- how tight?
A few weeks ago, I was under my red truck and noticed the rear drive shaft has some movement to it... traced it to the yoke on the back of the transfer case... nut was lose. So I tightened it... and good! Found a socket from my 3/4" drive socket set, and cranked on it...
Hindsight, I started wondering if maybe I have now tightened it too much... is there any adjustment, or crush sleaves like with a pinion berring? Have I done damage to it? Any insight would be helpful...
