Thanks Mike! I didn't check the yoke for any wear groves. I'll do that next, but I think that I may have screwed the pinion seal due to the oil leaking. I previously had sprayed the yoke down with brake cleaner and wiping with a cloth but didn't look for wear grooves.
I was looking at new yokes/seals and the HD yoke replacement with U-Bolts looks like a good option. I see two different styles of yokes though, one has a flange that looks like it mates up with the diff housing and one that doesn't (looks like the old yoke expect through holes for the U-Bolts). Both say that they fit the dana 35. Is there a real difference between the two and will they both work?
