Rear Axle Pinion Seal - Dana 35

I replaced the pinion seal on my Dana 35 the other day, I had the driveshaft off since I was taking out the tranny, so all I had to do was unbolt the pinion nut to get to the seal. The pain in the butt was getting the seal out. I tried using my harbor freight seal puller to pop it out, but succeeded only in bending and breaking the tips of it. I finally took a screwdriver and a 2lb mallet and tapped the flat edge of the screwdriver under the lip of the seal all the way around the seal until it popped out. I replaced the seal with a new one, it looked different than the old one as it had no lip on it. I put it in by holding a big socket over the pinion shaft and tapping the seal into the case. I am hoping this cures the leak.

i just did the same thing last night but with no luck on putting the new seal in. i changed from a regular yoke to the spicer kit with u-bolts upgrade and the seals were different. the new seal seems a bit too big (the outside ring) but we jerry rigged it in mostly. the bottom is in very snug but the top is not in rite. it only leaks a little bit and i think it will do till i get another seal

did you properly ensure that the pinion bearing has the correct preload?
