Chase at ECGS sent this out for free, new nut and seal, got it quick! Easy because I have a solid sleeve. 200ft lbs and stake it. I also threw a little RTV on the splines for good measure but there was no signs or leakage from there when I took it apart.
I had to do the same thing. The pinion flange had scores on it and the spring on the pinion seal came off. I used a flat head to get it out and tapped the new seal in with a drift and hammer. I then cleaned the flange with emery cloth and reinstalled. Impact gun at 200ft lbs. No leaks in almost a year

Damn, this thread is awesome. Unfortunately it just shows me that I'm not mechanically inclined to do this. lol

I'll stick to oil changes and air filters... when my free 24 month service ends.

Great thread! Fixing to throw a ARB locker in the rear on mine. And the front will be done later this year.

Thanks for the write up, just did it! How long did you wait before filling with fluid?

Thanks,

Mike

I waited no time to add the fluid, never had any issues with leaks. But I'm sure others will chime in to say to wait a few hours for the RTV sealant to cure

You've done this enough times, maybe you can answer my question. I used your method of unbolting the brake line hangers so i didnt have to crack the lines and after i got everything bolted back up i noticed my back brakes were rubbing horribly before i hooked the ebrake back up. i had to go inside the drums and adjust everything so they dont rub when im not on the brakes, but now it feels like i dont have any back brakes and my is at full adjustment and its barley grabbing. Just seeing if youve ever run into this issue

I have never had this issue before. And unless you disassembled the brake shoes to remove the ebrake cable I don't know what the issue would be.

Thanks, I was worried because the instructions stated:
"Finger tighten until material begins to squeeze out around flange. Allow to dry for one hour then retighten 1/4 to 1/2 turn. 4. Silicone will skin over in one hour and fully cure in 24 hours under normal conditions. Allow more time for cold or very dry conditions."
I was worried I had to wait 24 hours since there would likely be some RTV in the rear end.

When you say it's at full adjustment, are you sure you adjusted the right direction?

So I just filled and was going to go for a test drive, ABS and rear locker light are on. Hmmmm. I know I moved the fork back over, maybe it didn't seat correctly. Any thoughts?

I woukd make sure that the connectors are pushed in all the way, you shojkd have heard and felt a click. Also, have you tried to engage and disengage the locker while driving? It would be safe and harmless to do on pavement if driving in a straight line. You can also remove the locker motor to try and move the fork again.
