Well, with my last Differential fluid change, my D35 is now leaking and I think it is because I did not torque the bolts correctly. Non-the-less, I decided to replace the old cork gasket and I went and purchased a Lube Locker gasket.
After looking around a little on the internet, I went down to the local 4Wheel Parts store and purchased it for the on-line price.
So now I have collected quite a bit of new stuff to put on the ol' 97 and we are not through yet.
Here is the list of stuff waiting to go on.....
.Crown HD Steering kit including stabilizer
.Spicer 5-760 u-joints for the front axle
.Lubelocker D35 gasket
Next purchase I think will be ball joints at about $100.00 for both sides and both lowers and uppers, hub/bearing assembly at about $170.00 each side, pick up a new fuel tank skid/support plate for around $200.00, and figure out what I am going to do with the corroded fuel return line.
Since it has been so long collecting all this stuff, when I do all these upgrades, I will also now need to change the oil again, and drain and fill the transfer case one more time.
