Noticed the differential bolts are leaking fluid after replacing the fluid. Should I have used Teflon tape on them prior to installing them?

Its not the bolts that are leaking, its the diff cover gasket. I use RTV and never mess with a stock gasket.


Hosed mine off today, thinking about getting it ready for next weekend... oh yea, it already is.

Beat it to fit, paint it to match!

Finished replacing the clutch. Took a few days since I had to work and we had lots of rain and I'm working in the driveway (no garage). What a difference a new clutch makes!

It was actually wet at the bottom of the drain plug. I did use RVT in lieu of the traditional gasket. It is wet on both front and back.

Took her for a drive tonight, it's so nice to have her running good and I don't have to worry about breaking down a mile away from home

I have to say those are awesome "sliders". True sliders for sure and very unique. Looks like you cut on a plasmacam?

Nice ideas and execution.

Would you be willing to share a dxf of the file? There are two file sharing threads, one in fabrication and one in the CJ section.

Thanks WSS, I am pretty excited how they turned out. I Must give credit to forum member raskull. I used his drawings for the face plate and bottom mount plate as a starting point and made modifications to fit the CJ. I had to make post cutting modifications for fitment that I need to add to the drawings. Once that is complete I will post the files.

Well I'm getting ready to start swapping out my t150 for a t176. Trying to go through a last minute check list in my head.

Ah, ok. You said cover bolts... That's why I said that.....

Try turning it in just a bit more, it may seal up. If that does not work..
You will have to drain the diff, clean the threads in the housing/cover (which axle again?) and after cleaning the plug, put some teflon tape on the threads.

Beat it to fit, paint it to match!

Pulled out the rear seat - the kid is visiting the grandparents for the summer so no need to haul more than one passenger around. Gave me a chance to clean the inside of the tub - about five pounds of leaves, empty soda cans, scraps of paper and dirt. I ended up just hosing everything down after hitting it with the shop vac. Much better, now I can sleep tonight.
