I have everything torn apart and I ran into something that I have NOT seen on any of the tutorial vehicle pictures online. My transfer case has an extra piece that covers the oil seal cover that I circled in red.
Do the bolts holding it on go thru into the transfer case requiring me to reseal the bolts when I reinstall them?
Does that bracket do anything other than stump me?

To the best of my knowledge I have never sealed the four retaining bolts for the rear parking brake assembly.

Bolt holes are blind. The part is an oil catcher that directs the oil to the drain slot in the casting. Keeps the shoes from getting too much oil contamination when the seal leaks.

Thanks all! I'm trying to avoid creating a leak while fixing a leak. My love-hate relationship continues and the smell of 90wt gear oil makes me nauseated.

Lets hope so, I'm refilling it with Red Line synthetic.

Done and done.
A few lessons to share for anybody who is interested:
1) The most time consuming part of the entire project is removing and reinstalling the 4 nuts that hold the driveshaft on.
2) Once unbolted if you raise the body of the truck (floor jack under the hitch) up a few inches to "stretch the drivetrain" the driveshaft easily pulls away from the transfer case.
3) Loosen the 30mm nylock nut before you pull the parking brake drum and loosen it while the parking brake is set.
4) Grease the seal well and set it in using your 52mm hub socket.
5) Finish torque down the 30mm nylock nut after you reinstall the parking brake drum and set it.
6) Synthetic gear oil smells WAY better than standard gear oil.

on the rectangle inspection plate do most people use the rubberish gasket or RTV?

I have used "right stuff" on the couple I did and it seems to hold up well.

Everyone should have one of these: http://www.paddockspares.com/da1119-...-14-50gbp.html

Personally, my hand brake comes off at least once a year for a clean and lube. You can probably do the whole job in an hour once you've worked out the easy way to get things off.

I only ever use Right Stuff. Whoever resealed my transfer box used a gasket kit, and it leaks.

does anyone RTV the plate that the input gear bearing race lives in, it is sandwiched between the transfer case and the round PTO cover.
