I have a pretty newly rebuilt (by mudrak IIRC) 4 sp transfer case for a stock driveline '75 fj40. I think it might have 8-10k miles on it.

I have the specter transmission return line

already in place to keep the oil level adequate.

My problem..

Speedo cable leakage, seems like where it threads on, as well as behind the threaded portion, where the long, black plastic portion (that houses the speedo cable) meets the metal of the threaded part. I've cranked the threaded thing as hard as I dare, and it still seems to leak through the threads. is there some sealant I could use? I have some leftover gasket maker from doing my differential seals.

Also leaking.. if you are on your back, facing up, with your legs pointing toward the front of the truck.. looking at the speedo cable, just above and toward the drivers side of the TC there is a bolt that holds a flat peice of metal in place. this rectangular metal tab keeps something above it from rotating. its also leaking. Do I need to open the TC for that seal or is there a magic fix i can try first.

I tried to find a SOR catalog page showing that spot but couldnt.

thanks for the info. so, to make sure i have this...

I'm going to unscrew my speedo from the TC. then I'm going to gently pry out the threaded portion where the TC accepts the speedo. then I'm going to replace the O ring in there.


what about the other leak? it's NOT the bolt that holds the tab.. that bolt is short, and dead ends in the TC casing. all the bolt does is hold the tab, which shoots upward about 1/2 inch into a slot in a circular thingy which is leaking from its circumference.

thanks. gerry
