Transfer Box oil filler mod

Anyone out there help me with this?
95 D-90 with an LT230 transfer box, I do not have maint history for this truck

LT230 serial number ends with suffix "E"

There is red paint stripe on the PTO cover where someone has marked the box (looks like at some point PTO cover was removed)

However, no yellow "X" that Land rover bulletin says marked the oil filler mod boxes.

I would just pop the cover off but bolts are frozen. Before I take it to a shop, any other way to tell if oil filler mod was done?

Thanks for your help

Thanks for those links but I should have made my post clearer:

There was a TSB for 95 Xfer boxes that called for installation of an oil feed disc (#H415) under the PTO cover

Is there a way to tell (other than pulling off the PTO cover) that my Xfer box, ending in suffix "E" has this disc installed?

overfill the t-case as much as possible, when it stops puking out all over the bottom of the truck its time for more. not very scientific but it seems to help keep it quieter

Wasn't the thrower disc the predecessor to the cross drilled input gears ?
Either way you simply pull the rear cover and the entire shaft simply slides out- you can inspect it for spline wear, see if it has the "slinger disc" or if its a later variant with the better cross drilled shaft.

Yep, that seems to cut down a bit on the noise. Thanks

I think the disc was an interim fix, just wondering if there was a way to ID the disc inside other than a yellow "X" painted on the cover. Called the local dealer, looked up the VIN and he said there were no outstanding bulletins on the truck, so I assume the disc is in there.
I tried to pull the cover but can't get the bolts free, have to work on them a bit.
Thanks
