PAY SPECIAL ATTENTION TO HOW YOU MUST TIGHTEN OR PRE-LOAD THIS STUFFYOU WERE SORTA VAGUE ON "REAR AXLE SEAL"---I DON'T KNOW WHETHER YOU MEAN THE "AXLE SHAFTS" OR THE "PINION" SEAL

IF YOU DO NOT DO EXACTLY WHAT IT SAYS---SUCH AS (EXAMPLE POSSIBLE FOR PINION PRE-LOAD) "REPLACE CRUSH SLEEVE" AND TIGHTEN UNTIL. WHATEVER.

FAILURE TO FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS TO A TEE---MAY END UP IN FAILURE OF YOUR REAR AXLE ASSEMBLY, USUALLY AT THE WORST OF TIMES!

I'M STILL HERE FOR MORE QUESTIONS IF YOU NEED ME

PICS OF SOME OF MY STUFF/ USING A SEAL PULLER/ REMOVING MY FRONT TRANSFER CASE YOKE TO REPLACE THE SEAL USING A HOMEMADE YOKE HOLDING TOOL

I RECENTLY HAD TO REPLACE MY THROW-OUT BEARING IN "WILLY", MY 1946 WILLYS JEEP---WHILE I WAS N THERE, I REPLACED THE CLUTCH [WHICH LOOKED FINE], SURFACED THE FLYWHEEL [LOOKED FINE TOO], AND REPLACED THE INPUT SEAL ON THE TRANNY AND BOTH OUTPUT SEALS ON THE TRANSFER CASEI WAS IN THIS FAR. SO WHAT THE HECK.

I RESTORED "WILLY" FROM NOTHINGNESS 20 YEARS AGO [GOT PICS OF THAT TOO].I DRIVE HIM A GOOD BIT. IT JUST LOOKS LIKE THE OLE THROW-OUT BEARING WOULDA LASTED MORE THAN 20 YEARS. EVERYTHING ELSE DID. MUCH OF THE DRIVETRAIN LASTED 66 YEARS!

I LOVE MY JEEPS!
