    The plug in my slip yoke is leaking, what is the best way to fix it. I have been thinking about just welding the SOB.

    Mine was leaking in the yoke itself .I used ge industrial silicone and stuffed it there and it has'nt leaked since about $5 a tube at any hardware store .Also the 208's are notorious for leaking right at the output seal .Make sure you check that when you pull the slip yoke out ..Good luck. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    I second the silicone trick. My buddy with a driveline shop says that is all he ever does.

    The output seal is completely dry and the u-joint is soaked in ATF so I'm pretty sure it's the plug. I will try the silicone, sounds cheap and easy, cheap and easy is my favorite way to fix stuff /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I had the same problem... I first cleaned it with a little brake clean and a toothbrush. then filled it with silcone. No leak. Its been about 6 months. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
