Nope, no parts will fly out. The cover is sealed with silicone.
I've rebuilt mine with the Quad4x4 kit and I'm installing the big input shaft this weekend...
I bent the friction disk installing it last time so be careful removing and installing the trans. Or you'll have shifting problems with a slightly bent disk.
Best bet is to use a transmission jack, NV4500 is heavy, transmission jack makes it easy to line up.
Once you have the transmission within 3/4" of the bell housing, you are just short of getting the shaft into the pilot bearing. At this point I either have a helper depress the clutch, or use a board to hold it down.
This allows the friction disk to float free while getting the shaft into the pilot bearing. This is done by HAND, you should be able to get the surfaces of the Bell Housing and transmission flat together without using the bolts, otherwise you may bend things.
