    You can go ahead and try and replace the seal. It isn't hard. Remove the driveshaft and pop the seal out. A seal puller is the best and easiest way. I used a BFS (Big freakin screwdriver) to pry mine out. Probably not the best way but it worked. Unfortunately this probably won't solve the leak problem. It didn't solve mine. I forgot what they say it is but I have just gotten used to the leak and I fill it when I remember too.

    Most times it's the seal but if the new seal doesn't fix it, you need to change the bronze bushing as well. Or chek you yoke for a grove, if there is a grove you need to either change it or resleeve it.

    What does replacing the bushing entail. My boss says he doesnt want to get into it and wants me to take it to his friends tranny shop. Im thinkin he just doesnt want to help me with that job. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    Assuming you have the 208, you have to take the tailhousing off and push the bushing out and then press the new one in, and put back together.

    Ok unbolt the 4 bolts holding on the tail housing and inside you will see the bushing. Your going to want to have something that can push out the old bushing without tearing up the mounting surface. When you get the old one out just press the new one in nice and evenly. Replace the tailhousing and use RTV on the mating surface between the tail housing and T/C. Make sure everything is back together and ready to go and slide the shaft in and make sure it isnt scored at all. Mine was scored pretty bad and I used a angle die grinder and some fine emory cloth to get out most of the marks. Hope that helps ya out some. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
