Rear End
« on: September 05, 2010, 06:07:27 PM »
My 67' has an 8" rear end and it has started leaking lube where the drive shaft enters the rear end. I assume there is a seal there, is it possible to change without a lot of effort? or should I have a shop look into it? I have the ability to do some work if it does not involve rocket science.

Advise would be appreciated .

Thanks

Jeff

Because you need special tools, and to set the lash, take it to a shop. Otherwise you get a nasty "whine".

And, when the shop is through replacing the seal, have them fill the rear with synthetic 75-W-90 gear lube.

That stuff is slicker than snot on glass.  I have it in my transmission and in my rear.  My gas mileage improved drastically after I had that old black 90 weight dino gear lube drained and replaced with synthetic.  It's a messy process if you try to do it yourself though.  I took mine to a Jiffy Lube place.  Seems like it was like $65 bux.
