0III0forlife if you are putting a new yoke in it you should put a new output shaft seal in as well. the old seal was used to the old yoke, it might not leak but as long as you got it apart?. your call. grease the outer part of the slip yoke where the seal will ride on it. and slap it together.

That should be no issue. Reason using a paint cap is the shaft sticks out a little you got to avoid touching it cause it will be spinning..\\

tell us later how those front wheel burn outs are funnnnnnn ...

Jeepsr4me tape spray can top on it. or what ever size you can fit on there. yes you gonna loose some fluid. But the better you seal the end the less it will be. Drove for 100's of miles this way.
