Random LT230 question

What's this plug for in the nub near the forward output shaft? Some sort of access during assembly?

I need to shave about 1/8" off that nub. Assuming I don't remove so much that the plug doesn't stay in, can anyone think of a reason this would be a bad idea? The nub will be up against something so is in no risk of getting hit by anything.

Doesn't look much different from plugs in the block.

This is just one of the two plug seals of the rods behind.
They are do be driven out by the rods.
Why do you want to shorten them?

I have a unique application for it, in that I am connecting a electric motor directly to the transfer case (the thing in the right side of the picture). I can take out a spacer piece and reduce the overall length of my drivetrain by about 3/4" if I can take 1/8" off of that nub which currently will hit the motor before the adapter fully seats. This is attractive to me for a couple of reasons, the main one being that the coupler I made is a bit short (I measured based off a thinner prototype adapter) and shortening the adapter assembly will give me full spline engagement without any funny business. I would also have to move my motor mounts (same reason).

Just cut off the allmost 4mm.

To be sure of that, I'll take some pix of this situation tomorrow.

Hope these will get more security.

Let's have a look what's behind the plug:

shifting rod, positioned in diff lock position, so a springloaded ball fixes the rod by snapping inside the left of the two groves.





the other end of the rod then is right here





the bore for the plug is 1/4" deep



So you may cut 1/8" off of the housing.
