transfer case chain

Is it possible to replace the chain on a 242 with the t-case still on the jeep? This is on my 91 briarwood. Do you also have to buy the rebuild kit and replace all the seals and other things that come in it or can I just take it apart and only replace the chain?

You could but you will have to take the front output gear (inside the case) off to do it. Usually just easier on a bench especially playing with the oil pump. You'll need a tube of RTV and at least the rear output seal.

Here's a photo tutorial that will get you to the chain. There's Youtube vids on changing the chain, which you will need to look up.

Did mine last weekend and it wasn't as bad as I thought, left the case in the xj. You need the right snap ring pliers and a tube of rtv then the rear seal like already mentioned. Do you have a SYE? If so make sure you get the correct seal.
