Re: Axle seal leaking, what am I doing wrong?

I think you put rtv between the backing plate and other surfaces not to keep oil in, but to keep water from getting into the bearings.

I too have found leaking axle seals damned annoying. I put 1 pc axles in my amc20 and they still leaked. I have since changed to a dana44 with only an outer seal and things have been good for 2 years now.
