Cleaning out old transfer case oil??

I bought a used transfer case off eBay and all seems to be in great shape. All the bearings are tight and it spins real nice. But it smells awful and I want to clean out all the old oil that's in it.

I don't really want to open up case I don't think the gasket is readily available. Is there something I can run threw it to clean it out?

Also what do you guys run in your transfer case? I've seen guys fill them with marine grease.

IF your looking to flush the case, toss some diesel fuel in, then rinse with gear oil multiply times until ur happy it’s all out.....
I see folks say flush with diesel a lot, but seeing how it has a flash point ?, something just tells me this is not a good idea.

Diesel fumes don't ignite, just gas fumes.
