    Have a truck here that went over on it's side and the power divider cap got damaged. There are five bolts that hold it on and I thought it just slipped off but that isn't happening. Is there something I am missing or is the internals bent and holding it? Part 24 in the picture.

    Using pry bars I got about 1 inch away from the housing. Have not been back under there today yet.

    Well then it’s not just stuck on with silicone
    Possibly binding on the piston…honestly sometimes just the seal can put up a fight
    Unrelated story about silicone…I was working on a farm tractor and had the transmission split apart under the operator feet ended up that parts were going to be several months. I don’t want it in the shop that long so I put silicone in place of the gasket and bolt back together put it outside for a couple months and when it was time to take it back apart to fix it that silicone would literally hold the tractor together with no bolts…

    I found a used cover late Friday. I had to meet someone to get it and only had enough time to get the driveshaft back in and get it pulled in the shop so I can start on it Monday. Found a gasket but it was old and brittle so I will probably just use some gray silicone.
