D35 Leaking only downhill.

As the title says. My d35 is leaking gear oil when it's downhill/slanted. Coming from the yoke on the axle. People in pepboys, napa And ghetto zone couldn't figure out what it is. Any help would be appreciated. I know it's a seal. But which. I also have the ubolt style yoke on it for the Tom woods driveshaft.

Sounds like you need a pinion seal.

Did the leak start right after you installed the new yoke?
Does Tom Woods mention anything about the yoke working with the factory pinion seal?
You'd think it would but you never know.

When you're parked down hill the oil would run to the front of the diff so it would show a bad pin seal.

If it happened with the new yoke maybe the yoke is slightly smaller on the gh surface

Inner axle seal.

There is no yoke on a axle on any D-35 other then the pin yoke.

Inner seal is am description for the seal used at front diffs because of axle wobbling from joints oscillating in turns that would shorten the seal life in that location, and because you need to go inside to change that seal.
D-35's have a axle seal at the outside of the bearing usually pressed into the housing which would be the axle seal.

If he said when parked off camber it leaked out of the drivers or passenger side Axle then i would agree he needs a axle seal and not a inner axle seal, but still a pinion seal.


The correct description is a pinion yoke seal

You are correct. I assumed that the use of the word "yoke" he was referring to the front axle U joint and simply mis-labeled it as a 35.
That is what I get for thinking......
