I am a newbie to bronocs and I have learned a lot by reading all of these posts. I thank all of you who share your knowledge for the rest of us. I bought an 82 bronco about a month ago. It has probably been sitting for 20 years and I have been doing the general maintenance like plugs, wires, thermostat, fuel filter, carburetor, etc. I have been able to drive it around town. After all of that I noticed a small leak at the rear drive shaft coming out of the transfer case. As I was changing the rear output seal the bearing behind it fell back into the TC. Before I go any further I would like some advice of what to do from here. Do I take the rear housing off or does the whole TC have to come out? It is an np208. I know enough to do general stuff, but my mechanical skills are not the best. Any help would be appreciated.
