Found mystery part in bottom of transfer case...
I cracked open my NP231J transfer case this afternoon to swap in a SS SYE. I found some part fragments in recess of the the bottom of the case under the oil pump pickup. It appears to be hard black plastic of some sort.
I addition I found a small amount of metal shavings on / around the filter. I am not sure if that is related.
The part fragment I have pictured below seems to be part of something circular. The inside diameter of the circle makes me thinks it may have come from the rod the holds the shift forks. I looked at the online exploded diagrams but I didn't finds anything... Thoughts?
