<font color="green"> If there's gear oil in the brake drums, then they're leaking. Can't tell if it's gear oil or brake fluid? Brake fluid doesn't smell, gear oil smells nasty. </font color>

your rear brake may be really touchy too. That 90 wt gets in your brakes and when the brakes are apply may cause your rear tires to lock very easy.

Re: rear axle seals on a 10 bolt gov loc axle

well, its not the axle seals, cracked open the drums only to find out that my rear brake shoues are still in good shape and everything is still working nicely, lol well i guess the thing that is spraying everything with gear lube is my pinoin yoke, it is rather sloppy and rather oily, i think im just gunna add some heavier gear lube to slow the leak down alittle bit, oh well thanks guys, at least i will know how to realize when axle seals go bad [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img], thanks guys.

Re: rear axle seals on a 10 bolt gov loc axle

A buddy of mine had his rear wheel seals out and instead of fixing them he took his brake shoes off so it wouldn't lock up the tires. Aargh! Some people. He was turning 36" TSLs too. This is the same kid that wanted to trade his kingpin D60 for a ball joint 60 fornt..... [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

Re: rear axle seals on a 10 bolt gov loc axle

Don't know about anyone else, but I kinda like the idea of being able to stop. Specifically after I had the brakes go out once (brake line rubbed through somehow). I demolished the Corsica that was nice enough to stop me...only chipped my paint though [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] that part was kinda neat [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] now my insurance is expensive [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

Re: rear axle seals on a 10 bolt gov loc axle

I am planning on disk brake rears but I really don't wanna pay the masive cash for the el dorado e-brake calipers so I won't have a manual e-brake. I am gonna put a line line on teh front and on on teh back brake lines right by the mster cylinder and that way if I loose a brake line I can just lock the front or rear and use the other brakes to get it out.
