This is the tank sealer kit I got:

I looked up reviews and it seems to be pretty good stuff. We shall see how it works.

just a little update: the tank is sealed, no leaks! and it holds about 22 gallons. much more than the last tank!

I also ordered an overdrive unit for the transfer case, so will be putting that in next.

The overdrive unit has arrived, but now I have a tractor project on my hands....it never ends! Will definitely update the thread with info and pics once I get started on the overdrive install. I believe I will have to re-make the metal trans cover in the patrol to allow more room for the extra shifter and linkage needed...

Hey all, i havent forgotten about you. The OD is still sitting on my workbench waiting to be put in, but i have loads of other stuff going on lately. I think once my new house is built, is when I'll do the OD installation. Barndominium is currently in progress :D

I have also been thinking...are there any companies out there that can make custom ring and pinion gears? Id be more than happy to send off my gears to a company for them to check out, so i can get some new gears made for a lower ratio... this would be in the interest of not having to swap my entire driveline just to change axle ratio.
