What size is the drain plug on a 98 NP249, urgent

Edit": i got it


How do i get the tailcone off the Transfercase now ? I got all the bolts off, but the RTV seal is really holding the cone on... I cant break it off...

I know there is a snap ring but i cant do that yet because i cant even get the tasilcone apart from the TC

i used a large pair of vise grips for the drain plugs, an adjustable wrench would probably work just as well. bolts will crack and pop if they are corroded in a little and dry.

I got it its 10mm.


Also does anyone know hwo to get the tail cone off ?? Im not talking about the snap ring, i have that undercontrol for now, what i mean is the damn tailcone is glued onto the transfercase with the RTV pretty good. I cant seem to get it apart. I tried wiggling it really hard but nothing..
