Rear diff removal

Post by kenwhiteside » Tue May 31, 2016 8:28 pm

Hopefully a quickey

Planning on pulling the rear axle and diff out to swap out the wheel bearings and bushings. Also planning on giving it a paint.

I was wondering if there is a gasket between the diff and the axle. Cant see one on the parts fiche. Is it RTV?

I used 'Ozotite', applied thinly with an old toothbrush.
