So I laid on my back, dragged the xfer case onto my stomach, and bench-pressed it into place. It was amazingly easy. Which reminds me that over the years the jobs I think would be easy are effing nightmares and the ones I think are going to be effing nightmares are easy. Whatever.
To boot, I found four quarts of vintage Dexron III/Mercon in the garage, which used to be the recommended lube before it was superseded by several dozen varieties of ATF. Whatever again.
