Pinion Seal Replacement

Finally decided to address a pretty nasty leak around the rear diff pinion.  After removing the yoke the problem was fairly obvious.  The garter spring in the oil seal had come completely out.  Either the seal wasn’t pre-oiled or the spring was dislodged  when the yoke was installed the first time.  Removed the old seal and installed the new seal with a driver tool that I modeled in Solidworks and 3D printed pictured to the right.
