SOURCE: Rear Axel Seal
Wheel, brakes etc that are in way of pulling axle out have to come off. Drain rear end fluid, remove rear housing cover, remove bolt that holds pin in differential, remove differential pin, push in slightly on axle to remove "U" clip that holds shaft in, then slide shaft out. replace seal. Reverse procedure for re-install & fill with gear lube. If any questions, get back to us.

SOURCE: pinion seal leaking
check your rear diff vent if pluged clean it out and clean up the pinion seal.sometimes if the leak is caused by pluged vent and has not been leaking long once vent is clean sometimes the leak will stop.there is not a specific torque amount because it is rotational torque(how hard to turn pinion).there is a crush sleve on the pinion and if torqued too tight or too loose brg preload will be wrong and brg damage could result.mark and remove drive shaft.remove rear wheels,brakes,axles.so when turning pinion you dont have any drag from brakes or axles.mark the position of the yoke on the pinion.remove yoke,replace seal,reinstall yoke be sure to replace pinion nut.tighten nut until it takes the exact same amount of force to turn pinion as before taking original pinion nut off.hope this helps.

SOURCE: ford pinion seal
remove the drive shaft at the pinion flange move it out of the way, then remove the pinion flange on the differential nose, the seal is under that, replace the seal and repalce the pinion flange nut, torque to 50 foot pounds and stake the nut like the old one, this is bending the lip of the nut over to lock it in place.

be sure to mark the drive shaft position so it is re-assembled in the same location, it's balanced at the factory. Also Locktite the driveshaft mouting bolts and torque them. (42-57 FT LB)
