Need help putting Tom Woods rear DS back together
I was changing all my u-joints on my rear DS. Decided to re-grease the slip joint after reading some posts on clunking noises. I pulled the male/female joint apart, it took some effort. There seemed like a lot of grease still there.
I need help putting it back together, as the rubber seal on the female end makes it a tight fit. The male end is too wide to insert into the female end (insert "that's what she said" here). See pictures.
I've tried forcing it. Help appreciated.
