Stupid gasket inbetween Tcase and tranny

Were the hell can I get one? Do they make one or do I need to just sillycone the shit out of it. I replaced my tranny with a rebuilt and its leaked like a mutha ever since. I put a thin film of silicon around it and it didnt seem to do any good. This is a 700R4 to a NP231. It leaks even when sitting for weeks without running its so bad!!!!

just make one I find that phone book covers work the best. Or really thin beer boxes, like fosters 12 pack.

lay the "cardboard" on the area that needs a gasket, tap along all edges with a ball-peen hammer to cut the gasket to fit. VIOLA, instant gasket, just add minimal silicone.

If I pull that Tcase off and do that and it doesnt work Im flying to NM to kick you square in the nuts!


Id just rather spend the 1-5 dollars for the right gasket is all.

Not to be a smart ass, but have you tried an auto parts store yet? Kinda hard to tell if one is made based on the info given here.

if this gasket goes bad, does that let trans fluid go into the transfer case?

I thought the area between the tranny and t-case was dry. If it leaks there then it's the rear tranny seal. Is it different with auto's or 700r4s?

There should be a seal where the output shaft of the tranny leaves the internals and a seal where the output shaft engages the tcase. There should be no fluid between them. There still may be a paper gasket between the tranny and tcase mating surface to keep water and other contaminants out, but not to keep fluid in.

CSP you got it correct... the output seal on the tranny seals on the input of the t-case... the space is or should be dry...

That gasket doesn't exist. The dealer doesn't carry them, the autoparts stores don't carry them.

The were use in the assembly process of the 4x4s. If you really want to put something there just use silcone.

If using silicone to seal, just let the silicone cure before you bolt them together and it won't leak!
