Re: Rear axle re-seal.
Ok, I have a dumb question...what is a crush sleeve?? I have the new pinion seal...is that the crush sleeve you were talking about?? The service manual says I should find the yoke, pinion seal, bearing cone, and outer pinion oil slinger. What the heck does an outer pinion oil slinger look like? No pictures in the manual, and all I found was the yoke, seal, what looks like a shim, bearing, bearing race. Am I screwed??
The machined portion of the yoke that rests against the seal did not look all that great...some pitting, etc. Was not a smooth surface...does this mean putting new seal in would be a waste??
The race of the bearing feels smooth, but there were a couple of pits in in a couple of the bearings. Can I get away with putting it back in? If not, can I just put a new bearing in, or is it time to pull carier to rebuild the rear end?
