    Last week I posted a question because my brakelights were not working but my turn signals were. Thanks a bunch to all who replied. It turned out, as someone suggested, that the turn signal switch inside the steering column was bad. I have replaced that and now all is well. The turn signals cancel a heck of alot better too. Here's another question, my Corp 12 is dripping some oil out near the yolk. I assume there is a seal of some sort in there and it has gone bad. How difficult is it to replace this seal. Do I need special tools? Thanks again

    Try just taking off the driveshaft and seeing if the yoke is loose. I've had two GM rear axles that leaked from there, but the yoke was actually loose, and as soon as I tightened it up, the leak went away.
