Issues removing transfer case
I sure someone has asked this before, but I cannot seem to get the transfer case to separate from the transmission. I have disconnected everything. Electrical connections, vent hose, shift linkage, both drive shafts, and all six nuts. Yet the damned thing will not come free. it's an np 242 i'm trying to remove because the rear of the case is cracked. I've tried pry bars, and even a come along, nothing is breaking this thing free. Any advice would be helpful, before i completely destroy something.
pb blast the studs one might be corroded I had this issue when doing my 94 or put the trans in neutral (i dont know if trans in neutral dose anything but i was in the same boat as you the damn tc would not come off.) i did both at the same time so I dont truly know wich solved the issue
I remember reading something about a dowel (locator) pin that get welded together over time due to galvanic corrosion. I think I read it in the transfer case swap thread in the FAQ section. Hope this is useful.

thanks guys, i'm going back at it today, i haven't tried the trans in netural yet, i'll try that and see what happens. it's almost there i can see light thorugh the top but it just doesn't want to let go. I'll let you guys know what happens.
alright, finaly got it out, turned out it was the top passenger side stud. The stud was so corroded it actually had about a quarter inch of build up on it and that prevented it from sliding out. All it took was four hours and a bunch of varying size flat tip screwdrivers and wiggling the thing from side to side until it fell out. Now i got it apart and that thing is pretty busted up from being run dry. so now it's on to the rebuild. Once again thank you all for the help.
