Question leak between tranny and transfer

Hi Just noticed today I have a leak between trans and transfer. Its definitely ATF. There must be a seal that has failed. Is it a difficult repair?

It should be a gasket to prevent leaking between the 2 bolt housings. As for replacement ease? Not too sure I've never done it but if you can manage to remove your t case then I'm sure it can't be too bad

No its not hard. The hardest part is removing the upper transfercase bolts. A stubby ratchet wrinch is your best friend after you break them loose.

It's a gasket to my understanding. But I'm not sure the exact name

Call a dealership and ask a tech. That's what I'd do

I can't tell you what seal you need but I do think you need seals and not the gasket. I don't think that adapter housing is supposed to be full of fluid. The gasket is probably just there to reduce corrosion between the two. I'd say your rear transmission seal or front transfer case seal is leaking.

get the t-case to tail-housing gasket from the chevy dealer, it will save you money, ford dealership tries to sell you 3 of them at a time, you will just need to make a hole in it for the alignment pin.

the chevy gasket will work, the bolt pattern is the same, just ask for a 90s transfer-case gasket. for a 1500 silverado
