Get your mind out of the gutter Ha-ha

Quick question to all...

Pulled my NP231 out of my 1993 YJ that had 150k miles and in process of replacing with another that had a lot less milage.

In removal, the hard to get stud didn't give up its nut and just backed itself out instead while all others stayed in the trasfer case.

Little bugger nut is fused to the old stud with rust.

Got a new stud and nut to replace.

Do you use red locktite when installing the stud into the transfer case so it won;t back out again?

Other question? Would you replace the AX15 Output shaft seal right now even though its not leaking while the TC is out?

Thanks all.

Personally I'd use Blue locktite.
Be sure to put some antiseize on the fine pitch threads before putting the nut on.

I've done a number of tcase swaps and have never had the AX15 output seal leak.
Of course for piece of mind you may want to do it. A lot easier now.

Thanks for the info. Blue for the stud and anti-seize on all nuts going back on.

Appreciate it.

Finally I am almost back on the road.

Now for lift kits and tires
