Ohs nos!!! The rear axle yoke seal is leaking on the jeep! It left maybe 10 drops on the garage floor. I guess it's about time. It's been drip free for many months now. Most CJ guys would be jealous of my drip-less rig, but not you guys eh? Got yur stuff squared away I'm sure

Okay so Matt probably has a leak free jeep too, so he's out of the joke

Autozone had a seal in stock, so I bought it and put it in.

The offending seal

Zapped off the nut with big bertha

Yoke slipped off with my fingers, very surprised!

Surface looks legit

image-2260212923.jpg

Cleaned up the area

My favorite way to remove seals. Pound a hole in the seal with a screw driver and pry. Easy as pie.

Pull some fluid out of the diff with a syringe so it won't wet the seal surface.

Add sealer so it will lower the chances of a leak

image-414053081.jpg

Pound in seal. Always the hardest part it seams

image-3732212044.jpg

Slide yoke on and douse the threads and back of the nut with sealer

image-2693441794.jpg

Torque with the impact gun until it stops or until the rotational pinion torque is the same. In my case, it stopped (~250 FtLb from a 600 lb gun or so)

Wha-lah!

Now to add more fluid tomorrow when the sealer has set.

Wow, nice detail. Makes it look like I could do it. I stratigically park on different pieces of cardboard. I remove the cardboard before anyone stops by so it "looks" like a leak free jeep. LOL

Pics are great! Thanks again.

Hey! You forgot to put some RTV on the splines and washer to prevent wicking through that area again!!!

Edit: I see you doused it with sealer...

Deer Season on weekends and work during the week, but I've been lurking...

Also...on another note...Jim, made me a tie rod and drag link I will install when I get my Jeep off the ranch in a few weeks. It's awesome!

Hey, not sure I congratulated you on your wedding! Congrats! Enjoy your time with your new wife and then...if you two are going that direction a family

SC
