Thanks for the tips, think I'll try to take it apart now.

Stuck with pulling apart this thing.

Tail housing won't come off. How do i pull off that rusty retainer on the shaft?



Any ideas here? Do I pull the seal first?

Got that sling spacer off with a chisel and some prying. Removed the outer shaft seal and bought a new one along with some snap ring pliers by autocraft. Well they suck... I'm guessing they're too small? Because the ring isnt coming off after about 30 min of trying. You get what you pay for.

Finally got the ring off by prying underneath with a screwdriver. So now its all opened up. Need to know what shoul be cleaned without getting too involved. all I can think of right now is the magnet.

I'm hoping to complete the swap today, anything else I should clean out other than the general case before I seal it back up?

My bad, wasn't sure if they were big for everyone else. Guess I should use a different imgur.com code?

Get as much of the old RTV off as possible. Don't be stingy with the new RTV, but also don't put too much on.

Did you swap the seals?

I plan on doing the input shaft seal, output shaft seal, and the one behind the oil pump. I picked up the output seal from advanced auto and it doesn't seem to match the size of any of them Just design differences?

This is the parts number list from Jr's thread:

NP242/231 rear output seal: 4370N
NP242 front output seal: 3946
NP231 front output seal: 710046
NP242/231 input shaft seal: 3173 (single lip)
NP242/231 input shaft seal: 710928 (dual lip, VERY nice seal!)
46RH, 42RE, 44RE, and 46RE transmission output seal (also known as rear seal): 710058

Are you talking about the rear output seal?

I've got the ISY, so I can't really say if they use the same seal. From Jr's thread I would hope so.

If the shaft will fit snug inside it, and it will fit the opening, then it should be good. I'd check the parts number to be sure though.

Do these numbers apply to all stores? Or one specifically?

I ended up getting all 4 seals at Parts Source & Napa. In each case, the store had it's own stock number, but was able to cross reference the parts number to identify the seal.

As I recall, I believe that each seal also had the parts number on its packaging.

Right, I feel NAPA is better at doing this than Advanced. I'll check my seal to see if its a match.

Grandpa must be a LOT younger than mine. Can't imagine the day he'd be down on the ground helping me with a suspension swap.........

Aha, yes he was a great help. Built VW buggies in his heyday. But thanks mate.
