Is it necessary to remove the transfer case to R&R the clutch slave cylinder?

(1998 Chevrolet 2500 Pickup)
in Kremmling, CO on April 06, 2012
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.

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.
