    Ah the infamous "Skunk Oil". Friction modifier was the official name. It did stink! I think Mopar had it also. Still needed on clutch style posi-tractions today. Though I don't know if its Whale oil!

    I am not aware of any type of pencil gear on a Dana 18 other than the square female cable drive. I am wondering if you should take a 7/8" deep socket and pull the pencil gear out and take a look.

    TJ are you saying the driven gear (pencil gear) in the transfer case had a slot in it? I have not seen that. All the ones I have seen took a square drive cable. Interesting.
