D30 pinion seal Q\'s
Ok, here's the deal. I read the Haynes replacement procedure, and I leaves me with questions.
It tells me to measure the amount of torque required to turn the pinion (about 3 ft/lbs). Then it tells me to remember the amt of torque to loosen the nut. Problem is that I cant loosen the nut (rusty), it's soaking in WD40 now.
So I guess my questions is, how much do I tighten this nut? They make it would like dire consequences if it gets overtighten! True?
Also, what's the best way to hold the yoke when trying to loosen this nut? The axle is a spare and is off of the Jeep.
