Today is rear pinion seal day

Today is replacing the rear pinion seal on my Dana 35. The back of the pumpkin is all wet.

Any suggestions on removing the pinion nut, sprayed it w PB yesterday. Will be getting after it later this am. Oh, and no, no air tools here. Just sockets, PB and the BFH.

Appreciate the tips.

might want to look into renting or buying a battery operated impact gun. Otherwise, breaker bar with a piece of pipe on the end.

mark the nut and the yoke and count the number of threads showing before taking it off. Impact gun will help a ton. Might even be worth renting one if you dont have one.

Got er done.

The pinion nut was cranked, was getting ready to quit.

Last chance, I put my 12" breaker bar at about 4oclock, slid the jack under. Gave it a few pumps and heard a pop. It was loose, lucky day.

Alls good thanks for the help, I hate leaks......
