transfer case help & trani fluid?

I changed my t case fluid, and when i was draining it i also undid a large nut next to the electric t case shift motor thinking it was another drain. its not. a spring and a little cup thing fell out. what is the correct way to put them back in? it looks like the spring goes in the cup goes in the bolt and the spring puts pressure on something in the t case?

And to drain the manual trans do u just remove the inspection cover? i dont see a drain plug. And what size is that square fill plug? thanks

What year and what are you driving? The drain plug is normally on the lowest part and its the same as the fill plug.

I would assume you an 04 truck with the shift motor on the front of the case beside the front driveshaft. Its a New Venture T-case BTW and takes regular MERCON ATF

Here is how the pieces go back in. first piece back in is the poppet, which your calling a cup, The smaller tipped end of the poppet goes into the case first, the spring goes into the opening "cup" of the poppet. Make sure the O-ring stayed on the plug and is in good shape and install plug. To sum it up again. Poppet/cup in first, spring, then plug.

My motto: Be nice, be polite, but have have a plan to kill everyone that you meet.
