t case fluid capacity?

i have an 87 wrangler i6 5 speed.

changed all the fluids today but confused about the t-case

i bought 2 quarts because i read it takes 2.2 pints,

but even after putting those 2 and another 1/2 i has lying around it still isnt coming out the fill port.

Is it not like everything else where you fill until it pours out?

It had to go somewhere!!! I understand the frustration but I have never seen more than 2 quarts in a dry T-Case (NP-231J).

I think I was only able to get like 1 3/4 qts in mine today. It was completely apart and drained prior to this.

It has the puegot transmission but Idk how to check which tcase...

It def never got high enough to reach the fill hole with my finger with the 2.5quarts but I did notice a rather large puddle of atf under my jeep before I left work work so its meaning out somewhere but didn't have time to check so I didn't drive it.

Is there an overfull drain or something that would let that extra quart or so out

Puddle is much larger and its still dripping

Can't see where its leaking from so either a damaged tcase or is there possibly some kind of overflow that's letting the extra out drops at a time

It appears the gasket/seal on the back side of the tcase is leaking, but I still don't know if I need to measure fluid out to 2.2pints or of I should fill until it comes out the fill plug

You should just fill it and let it run out until it stops but make sure your on a level surface

the NP207 transfercase is used in the 87. I tried finding the capacity for you but all I found was when the case is used in a chevy it holds 4.3 pts. not sure if its the same when in a jeep.
