1998 Chevrolet 2500 Pickup Question: Is it necessary to remove the transfer case to R&R the clutch slave cylinder?

I only want to R&R the clutch slave cylinder and don't wish to do any more work than necessary. The engine and clutch only have about 40,000 miles on them. -
Answer 1
It might depend on what transmission is in the truck. Nv3500 you have to pull transmisson. The Nv4500 calls for about 3.5 hours less time. -

I don't know which transmisson is in the truck. It is a cast iron case 5 speed tranmisson. It is an "R" code truck, which you probaly know is a heavy duty model of the 3/4 ton. -

The slave cylinder that is mounted inside the bell housing requires transmmision removal. On that model when look at the bell housing on the drivers side. That bell housing has 2 holes in it 1 for the bleeder valve on the slave and the other is for the hydralic line going to it. Should be able see it easy. -
