Fuji Univance TX15A Transfer Case Rebuild

I am starting this thread to document my adventure with a TX15A Transfer Case drop, rebuild, and re-install in my 2006 Nissan Titan SE King Cab.
I bought the truck from my neighbor approximately 4 years ago. Due to a medical condition he could no longer get up into it. He had a work vehicle he drove most of the time. The truck was 6 years old with 45K miles. I bought it for $8,000. I found out later that I got it for less than half of book value. Although he had general maintenance done, he was not "Kind" to it. I started to get a pretty good "Clunk" in the drivetrain. I would experience it when I did a "drive, reverse, drive" 3 point type maneuver. When I started going through fluid changes of the Diffs, Transmission, and Transfer Case, there wasn't a whole lot of fluid in the case. No abnormal metal shards on the drain plug. There was a small drip coming from the case itself. I had a couple of loose bolts. It seems pretty common. Regardless, it needed a fill. The extent of the problem became apparent once it was brought to level. It was spraying all over the exhaust "Y" pipe. A smell I don't want to experience again anytime soon. Post 2: so what now?

Re: TX15A Trasfer Case Rebuild-complete

Well, I have rebuilt my transfer case and it is back in the truck. Getting it out was no small feat. Everything was held in pretty good with what I am now calling: "New England Loctite", AKA corrosion. I have not been posting updates because I have been spending every spare minute on this. I will write the whole thing up. The stars weren't in alignment on this one. My rebuild kit was anything but. Some parts were no longer available from Nissan, or anywhere else. I will list every part number.

Do you have a persistent leaking seal on your main output shaft, even after replacing it?

Nice job, in for more info
