    Cracked Transfer Case Today

    In this situation, I certainly would have determined that I'm not going to be using that case again. So, then the case is sacrificial, cause it's broke already. If I wanted the idler gear, I would either be cutting or busting the case up to get the internal parts out, or pounding the idler...
