I recently picked up a used 90' 242j transfer case of ebay in order to replace my 249j in my 94' grand. Basicaly i was wondering how do you know when to replace the chain? Also, should i replace the bearings seals and pads for the heck of it? Any advise would be appreciated, thanks

Do you know how many miles were on it? I've never seen a set mileage. On the 231, I've read upwards of 60,000 miles, if you're going to have it open, you might as well replace the chain. And again, while you have it open, why not overhaul the whole thing if you've got the time.

I would have to agree. With the 242 you can do one thing. Take out the drain plug and you can see the chain. use a screwdriver and see if it has slack. If so then plan on a master rebuild kit and tearing it down.
