Anyone here welded a cracked transfer case? Got my rebuild kit from Kurt last week and dropped the tranny/t-case saturday. When I went to pull the case from the tranny, My first surprise was to find the nut that threads to the output of the tranny loose. There was about a 3/8 gap between the nut and the spacer. The second surpise was the crack from the top cover down the side of the case. Looks like it's been that way for quite a while. Funny thing is, it never leaked there. It did leak out the rear seal, but after changing the seal it was fine until the loose rear bearing blew out the seal and it totally puked all the oil out. Sooo, i've got a friend who's a very talented welder, who says he can tig it. Anyone else fixed theirs and put on a brace on them and been OK?
