A t-case swap

So I am currently driving my dads 99 WJ, laredo, 4.7 V8, 213k miles.
Firstly, when you start the car, there is a ticking sound coming from there. on the right side of the engine if looking from under the hood. It goes away after a some time. I have been told it could just be an exhaust leak. Anyone ran into the same problem?

Second, the transfer case hydrolic coupler is shot and my dad wants to do an np242 t-case swap. He has cv-joints on the t-case and the axles. I am sure this is a popular swap due to him having Quadra Drive. Anyone has possibly full instructions on how to do it or advice? anything is appreciated.

Thanks

Re: A t-case swap

The noise you hear can be an exhaust leak, but also a hydraulic lash adjuster.
Regarding the 247 to 242 swap, you will need a new rear prop shaft and shifter assy as well. The swap itself seems to be quite straight forward.

You will also need the shift linkage on the tcase as the 247 one is to long

Never heard of this. You just move the t case shifter cable from the top hole to the bottom hole on the original cable bracket. Also you can use the original shifter. You'll just have to guess what mode you're in or mark it somehow but it's a lot easier to tell with the 242 shifter.
