Clocking ring issues

Got this clocking ring from DIY4x to go on my np241, and I can't seem to make it stop leaking.

I've removed it, tightened everything up twice now, and it won't stay sealed very long. I've tried locktite on everything.

What do y'all think about threading the studs into the ring, then welding the backside of the studs into the ring so they won't loosen up? Naturally, I'll grind the backside smooth before re-install. Anyone had this problem?

Smear high temp RTV on all of the mounting surfaces put it all back together with the red lock tight and torque the holy living crap out of it. then for good measure smear some more of the RTV on the outside of all the mounting surfaces were everything bolts together. That should stop the leak it stopped mine.

I've done all that, short of smearing rtv on the outside. I want this to be the last time I pull the case out until something big breaks!

I never have any luck with RTV. I would try and just use 2 t-case gaskets on each side of the ring.

This might help, http://www.bc4x4.com/pv/yj/go2twister/go2twister.cfm it is an article about a clocking ring for the dana 300, NP231, NP242, seems you need a different tranny output seal.

Wow, thanks for the link!!
In reading the article those guys tack welded the studs in place, like I was thinking. I'm not sure if the seal would make much difference, seems like 231's and 241's always get fluid between the tranny and case even without the clocking ring.
