If it's like the other Tucker transfer cases pretty easy job once the yokes are off as stated above. You may also find some leakage out of the bolts that mount it in the frame of not asks properly.

Some like the self changing oil leak. Myself not so much

Seals are pressed in from the outside and locked in with a couple washers and screws. I replaced mine but it was out of the cat so it was pretty easy. Fixed the leaks at the seal but had a bigger leak through the spline and out the yoke. I put heavy grease on the spline and a bunch of blue silicone sealant behind the yoke nut and washer. Now I see I have a leak at the mounting bolts that are drilled and tapped through the case. Need to pull them out and reassemble with blue silicone as well.

I figured that rock crushers in a reduced capacity don't spell so gooder. But yes I knew what you meant!!! And be careful what you wish for if it keeps raining over here I might just have to come help you work on your cat.

The seals can be changed from the outside. Be sure to check the wear on the OD of the yokes. A stainless steel Speedi Sleeve can be used if the seal surface is rough. Right on about the oil migrating out the splines and mounting bolts. Silicone them.

Huh? In this instance I can think of many many things that "b" stands for!! Pertaining to a Tucker I'm not sure either.

My best guess is that back in those days is that the B stands for belted.

Then I have to ask what the 'A' means on my belted 1981 542A HD?

I'm not sure what "back in those days" means. It an 87, rubber was the only option at that point. I'm thinking it's got to be something else.

The 541A means that it started out life as a 500 steel track machine and was converted to belted tracks. We did that "back in the Day.

Sorry Mr. One On, I was looking at the tag on this post. The A means one inch rollers. Forget what I said about the belted conversion.
