Pinion oil seal on Etype

Adrian S

Recommended Posts

Hi  I have a 1971 V12 Series 3 E type and am currently rebuilding the rear brakes, I have the suspension axle unit removed and noticed a small oil leak from the prop drive flange, looking at the "book" it tells me that to replace the oil seal I have to remove the whole axle/diff and dismantle completely!!!   As i only want to replace the oil seal on the drive flange do I need to do this???? can i just replace the collapsible sleeve and oil seal and tighten it back up????  the oils seals on the drive shafts are good and not leaking, I don't want to take the diff apart for just this leak
