D-160 Axle Seals

Recommended Posts

Well, all the new trans oil leaked out near the rear tire.  Pulled the outer seal (didn't look bad) and I can see another seal.  I'm guessing its the inner seal?  Also means i have to  pull the trans and split it to replace the inner seal I take it?  I presume the inner seal holds fluid in and outer seal keeps dust from getting in.  Any places of recommendation to find new seals? Also a shop manual?

Somebody doubled up the seals at some point as there was only one originally.  Probably had a leak and just drove in a new one.  I would try a new seal before I pulled and split the tranny.  Is ther any up/down or front to rear play in your axle?  A small amount of in and out is ok.

There is a small area between the seals...like a pocket/chamber.  So try replacing the seal i took off before dropping trans?  Only real Play in the shaft is the normal in/out

I would put a fair amount of grease on the new seal before installation and make sure there were no rough spots on the axle.
