    It's my understanding that this device is apart of a preloaded mechanism in the transfer case- so I only felt comfortable going with a "notch".

    20k miles and it's still leak free (knock on wood).
    So, you just removed locking pin #4, and tightened down the adjusting nut while the drive shaft was still on the vehicle? Also, are you still running 75W-90, then? It's been awhile. Any issues to date?

    Running 75-140w Amsoil with Liqui Molly differential additive(MOS2)...At 208k-smooth running.
    Lots of hilly terrain and freeway driving (70mph-tops).
    Would you mind being a bit more specific about the hammer and notch procedure?

    So, I was wondering about the hammer and notch procedure. Can you simply put the car on ramps, remove the locking pin (#4), and then proceed to tighten the nut (#12) by one notch? Thanks.

    Do not remove anything. Move the notched piece over by one tooth to the right ( right tight).
    That's it.

    I'm confused. There's obviously something I'm not getting. The purpose of the locking pin (up at 12 o'clock position) is to prevent the adjusting nut from turning, so how then, do you manage to turn it without removing the locking pin first?

    AG exterior is dry - no vapors or accumulation.
    It is now close to 46 months since the switch to 75W140. The wetness at the bottom of AG has returned. Is this a sign that AG needs fluid change?

    The adjusting nut sets bearing preload. I wouldn’t touch it.

    Time to pull it and reseal your angle gear. Not a hard job.

    Do the collar sleeve while you’re in there.

    I did mine a few years back. I also modified the angle gear a bit to add a drain plug. I found that very worthwhile.

    Is it a must to file off 3mm at 30 of the inner edge of the cover? What is the rationale since this chamfered edge wasn't there at first?
