My credo
That one guy with ADHD and doesn't stop talking about cars.
Still having issues with the rear end. I think the pinion nut is loose. I "thought" I had marked the pinion nut and flange before I took it off but the damn marker (Milwaukee Inkzall which supposedly write through anything) didn't leave a mark so I was guessing on the pinion nut. I did count the threads and tighten it to see how snug it was before I took it off. Test drive last night and oil still coming through the pinion seal. This is getting annoying. So now for the 75th time today I get to lay on a piece of plywood on the gravel and drop the rear half of the drive shaft and see if I can tighten it. This has gotten to the point of beyond pissing me off.... Anyone have experience with pinion seals on these? Its a 7.5" rear end. I replaced the pinion seal and nothing else other than the diff fluid but still have oil leaking through the seal and a growl sound whenever I let off the gas at higher speeds...
Get a sharpie professional, they write on oily power steering caps and wet Burger King cups and they're a $1 and some change at Lowe's, lowes has em the cheapest...

Anyone who could shoehorn an 8.0L V10 into an RBV would be an absolute god.

Id like to see one in a BII.

built, not bought
pulled the escape out of the garage and in to the front yard.
Ive had pinion seal leakage problems too, even after being marked and tigned back down. I think mine is just from wear, after all that axle I put in had nearly 200K on it. At least the axle seals arent leaking. I just top off the diff at every oil change, it really doesnt get that low, looks like more is lost than what is. “on the go” rustproofing. lol

Pinion bearing preload is measured using an inch pound torque wrench. It will measure the rotational force of the ring and pinion.

The actual pinion nut will be in foot pounds of torque... which will far exceed snug. We are talking near or over 200 lb-ft in most cases. To achieve that torque it is common to use a tool to hold the yoke while torqueing the pinion nut.



Look up your spec and try again with a new seal.

It was like that when I found it.
Cool. What kind of wine do you serve with that?

When you're done with it put it in a jug and drop it in Dirtmans yard...

BTW Happy Birthday, how old are you in truck years?
