how to remove the transfer case from the transmission

I have a 1979 CJ5 3 speed transmission, how do I separate the transfer case and transmission? Are they 2 separate close pieces- now fluid will spill out when they are split?

Yes they are 2 pieces. Yes you will spill fluids.

The transmission and transfer case are two separate parts. You can drop the transfer case by itself. it is attached with six bolts. Each has it's own fluid seals and unless you have a bad seal you will have minimal spillage but I would drain the transfer case before removal. It is about 50-60 lbs so plan accordingly.

The Dana 20 tcase doesn't have a seal at the front of it like the Dana 300. It has a big honkin' hole and if the tcase is tipped oil WILL spill out of that hole.

Good advice to drain it to both minimize the spill and to get new fluid into in once installed again.
