This question may apply to all chain driven transfer case with planetary gears on main shaft. This manual shift gm nvg261 has these problems. Im pretty sure its not auto transmission or differentials. In park on a hill it would roll in 2H and 4H. It will only hold in 4 low and will only move forward in 4 low. With brake on in drive in 4 low there is a jarring loud clunk felt heard under drivers\passenger seat. When in drive in 4 low Id hear a repetitive light clunk. Buddy was going down hill on highway and truck felt like it drove over a brick so he pulled over. He trailered truck to me. I am trying to get my head around how a chain driven manual shift tcase works with the planetary gear set up for 4low. I understand how my high low on works in a gear driven setup in my tractor or gear driven tcase. There is two forks I believe in this tcase. Im thinking chain is stretched and/or planetary gear broken jammed up somehow. I had a chain skip before yet it skipped in 4 low and 4h yet this tcase has no drive in 2H or 4H. I got as far as taking transfer case out and on Friday had it on bench yet had to end my day. I researched how to remove clip on bearing to split case completely. Its a learning process for me and not sure what to expect to see in tcase for damage if any. A broken differential tooth could cause a repetitive nouse yet it would only move so far if truck was in park. I have too much free time this weekend to overthink it lol.

Sounds like it's time to split it and have a look. I don't have personal experience on that one but it can't hurt to look inside.

So I should have turned rear pinion when I took driveshaft off. I could turn it 3/4 of a turn. I removed cover and the two spider gears not on axle were shattered. The big pin busted in 1/2 and holes in carrier not looking good at all. One tooth busted on pinion and ring gear not looking good. So have good used rear end being removed at wrecker.

Transfer case I had split part last week. Removed speed sensor and rear bearing clip through hole on tailstock. Inside looks ok except the steel stop plate for pump broken in 1/2. So I ordered the improved stop plate part number BRNY. They were calling it I need a Burnie. Was that ever confusing lol. Its a flat stamped ring with stops made from steel so pump does not wear pin hole through rear of case. So its good I removed tcase because when the pin hole occurs all the oil drains out and tcase inmplodes.

Thanks for the reply though. The NV261 tcase pinhole problem averted and good diff on its way.

Might want to put a new chain in the T-case while open.

A story regarding pinholes. I had a 2002 Ford Diesel that had a clunking rear diff when turning (positrac). Turns out all the gear oil leaked out thru the diff cover pinholes. Saved the differential just in time. THEN I noticed oil all over the bottom of the engine oil pan. Same problem, pin holes seeping oil.
Whoever supplied Ford with those metal pans/covers used crappy steel.
