    Scribe a mark on the pinion and nut and count the number of turns it takes til the nut comes off.

    Replace the old seal for a new one and Loc-Tite the nut back on the pinion while counting the number of turns it makes and inspect the scribe marks to make sure it lines back up again. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
