Hole in transfer case

Ok so I was taking my AX15 trans out to get over to my buddy to rebuild. The trans came out no problem with the transfer case still attached. So then I went to take the transfer case off the trans and ran in to a problem, it wouldn't come apart. I talked to my buddy and he said to use a chisel. Well I put the chisel through the transfer case. So now there is a hole where the transfer case bolts to the transmission. I have someone who says then can weld it but they told me they weren't sure if it needed to be welded. Does anyone know if this needs to be welded? Also the transfer case is still attached to the trans is there any suggestions to remove it with out doing anymore damage?

Got any pics?

Maybe someone else who knows for sure will chime in, but in my 5 speed (nv3500) the transmission is not sealed by the tcase. In the 44re automatic, the t case input shaft mates with the trans to create a seal

As far as removing the tcase, have you tried supporting the weight of the tcase with a jack and then sliding it out? They're pretty heavy mofos

Yeah I now know that at the very least I used the chisel the wrong way. When I get home in a little while I will take some pictures and put them up. The trans and transfer case are out of the jeep sitting on the garage floor so a jack stand wouldn't be very helpful.
