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.

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.

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.
