Okay. I guess I didn’t RTV the top cover correctly and it’s now leaking. Gotta pull the transmission and TC. I could pull it as an assembly, but I KNOW it’s a huge PITA especially doing it with a jack in my driveway. If I pull the TC first, I know I should use a new gasket. However, I’m in a time crunch and I need the truck back together ready for fluid by Thursday. Can I RTV the TC to the tail housing of the transmission, or does it have to be that gasket?

Well, I just sucked it up and pulled it as an assembly with a buddy. Reinstalling will be a different story lol. I’ve done it before though. It’s just a PITA lol

I have seen remints of that gasket between an auto trans and the transfer case . There also seems to be a V shaped weep hole in that junction ( auto trans ) , if i remember correctly .

That being said , on the 04.5 built auto install and the '94 5 speed conversion we just slapped giant part A onto giant part B and called it a day .

Interesting. Well. A floor jack, and two people (me and a buddy) were able to get the whole thing back in as an assembly. Full of fluid and all! Would I do it again? Yeah. Probably lol.

Trying to stab the input shaft of the g56 into the clutch splines was the most difficult and physically demanding thing ive ever done.

I would never attempt it with the transfer case attached, dont think i could do it.

A lot of sketchy rocking was required lol. My biggest hurdle was the dang 4” down pipe.

I had to remove mine. G56 was too dam big lol. I had to rock the transmission with prybars and turn the output shaft to try to line it up.

G56 is super close to the cab.

Yeah, putting the square top on my NV4500 when I did the rebuild was one of the best decisions I ever made hah. Those couple inches of clearance make a huge difference. I also used an engine hoist on the front bracket of the engine to tilt it some.
