    Default Transfer case issue

    Small leak, and clunking noise coming from the transfer case I believe? Are the transfer cases known to go bad?

    They can. Where does it leak? It does sound though that you might need to take it apart and replace the chain and sprockets

    Chain and sprockets are a wear and tear item, just like a motorbike.

    Have you greased the rear output/slipjoint/whatever ... they clunk when dry.

    Re the leak ... the 242 has a little plasticcy/rubber bung, in the casting facing the front output ... which may or may not be your issue.

    ... welllll ... it should have a little plasticcy/rubber bung ... ask me how I know .. ..

    I hate watching simplicity and reliability being ruined by bureaucracy and technology.
