Not going to lie those are chuck Norris jokes lol but i don't know
Mean Max created Chuck Norris with some spare parts, two trac bars and some differential fluid.

[QUOTE=doublins;15539665]I always get people coming over and saying things like "I wish I knew how to do that," etc- but they don't realize- at some point I didn't know how to do it either- I had to figure it out.[/QUOTE]
I gotta say, this thread is pretty funny! Believe me, I'm stumped a lot more often than you may possibly think!
But thanks to MANY wonderful people in the Jeep community, especially here on JF, I have acquired more random Jeep knowledge than I ever thought I would. I only hope that passing along the things I've learned will somehow repay a portion of the debt of gratitude that I owe to so many.
And with that, I will now stump myself & ask for YOUR help!
I purchased a transfer case from Craigslist two days ago, sight unseen for $100 and a buddy picked it up for me. All the owner could tell me was that it was from a Cherokee (XJ or ZJ was not specified) and he didn't know what model it was. I bought it anyway.
As it turns out, it is an NP242 Part-time/Full-time transfer case. I am pretty familiar with these as I have swapped an NP249 for an NP242 in a ZJ I used to have, and our family WJ & our son's ZJ both have them too.
However, this one has something I've never seen. It seems to have 2 fluid lines running in/out above the front yoke. To where? For what? It's marked as a 242 AMC, but the build date is 3-15-96 which was long after AMC was dead & gone.
I don't know about a factory option for that Max but I do know of a mod for the NP231 that involves drilling and tapping the huge steel plugs and putting a hose fitting in each connected by a clear hose. It allows for easier fluid changes, plus you can see the color with the clear hose.
I'm sure that's not the answer but that's what I would use it for.
Maybe some kind of fitting for a cooler since it was a part-time/full-time case? It does a mini oil pump on the output shaft, correct?
Transmission fluid driven by transmission pressure of aproximately 90- 120 psi, goes through a cooler integrated with the engine oil cooler. From the cooler, the fluid goes though an intercooler loop inside the transfer case, and then back to the transmission. There is a bypass valve in circuit there to prevent the cooler fluid from all draining into the transmission pan.
