|Differential Seal||Pete Macken||6-10-04|
|Hi, I'm a college student at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities who bought a 1981 Ford/Carpenter school bus last summer out of Rochester, and turned it into a party/tailgate/camp vehicle. It's not a full camper, but it's been carpeted, taped and sprayed, and furnished. I have a problem; when I first bought the bus, I noticed that the rear differential had a minor leak at the front seal. I added gear-lube, but I overfilled it. Once I got the bus up and running again, it whipped oil all over the under-chassis. I'm wondering if I can take the yoke out myself and replace that front seal, or if I have to take it in to have it looked at. It has an Eaton 2-speed rear end.|

|Yep easy, undo joint, uncrew the nut in the middle of the yoke(you will need big pipewrench & a 3/4" breaker bar & probably a 1 1/2" 3/4" drive socket, & a torque wrench to retorque at the right torque. |
When removing the seal, you have to carefull not to loose or leave the seal spring there, if it goe in the bearing it will be very expensive.
