    Thanks Richard. The rear axle is in a solid diff housing and doesn't have a boot like on the front CV joint. The oil leaks around a bearing and seal that has to be pressed into place. Each time a new seal is press in it just leaks after about 50 ks.

Sounds like something is ruining that boot. check the surrounding area of the boot, check to make sure its installed right. as for the front your ging to have to just replace that seal.

SOURCE: Left rear axle seal is leaking differental oil.

ok then here is the procedure  1 take off the axle nut
2 on the lower control arm you will find a large nut and bolt i belive the nut is a 21mm and the bolt side is an 18mm. this bolt is the one at the knuckle near the brakes. remove it
3 you will need to pull the knuckle out of the way or a helper to pull the knuckle out of the way so you can slip the axle out of the knuckle.( its a tight fit but there is room to slip it out.)
4 use a pry bar to pop the axle free of the diff. hosing its held in by a spring clip make sure the clip comes out with the axle if it gets stuck inside you will have to fish it out.
5 use a pry bar or screwdriver to pry seal out of housing then use a flat object that contacts the entire rim of the new seal so it can evenly be installed with out getting smashed and tap it in with a hammer. ( a good trick here is to use some grease and pack it into the new seal where the spring is this will prevent the spring from being shocked out of the seal during instalation . the spring keeps tension on the rubber in the seal so it stays tight to the shaft it is sealing.)
6 then revers the above steps. also make sure you are using the right gear lube it will most likely be 75w-140 but make sure you check your owners manual will tell you if it doesnt say on the diff cover. you can cause a lot of damage if you put in the wrong thing. and make sure  you feel the axle spring clip snap into place.
as a note there are two types of axle seals that are used on these so if the new seal looks different than the old seal then the folliowing will be important to you.the seals on these have been redesigned so if you axle has what looks like a cup or dust cover pressed onto the shaft where it goes into the diff the new style does not use this and it will prevent the axle form going in all the way so the spring clip will not lock in and you will have a leak. so you will have to remove it and install the axle without it.

You don't have to remove the whole diff to change the seals, but you will have to seperate it where the shaft meets the carrier housing. There is a clip holding the passenger axle shaft in place that you have to remove to change the seal. The drivers side axle stub can be removed with a little force as there is a spring clip holding that side in.

1.I have a few oil leaks from my Land cruiser 100 series. There is always two lots of oil puddles that a small and a few drops on my driveway. 2. When I start my Land cruiser there is a slight knocking...


For oil leaks:
------------------
1. Check that the sump nut is properly tight.
2. For such an old vehicle, there will be minor leaks as seals give away after so many years of use. What you can do is use a thicker engine oil. For example if you are currently using 10w40 then switch to 20w50.

For knocking:
-------------------
1. If its a diesel, it can be a case of adulterated fuel. Are you getting lots of black smoke on revving? if yes then your engine needs some work.

2. If its petrol, it simply needs timing adjustment and other fine tuning and it should be fine.

You need to have your seal replaced. I would recommend installing new bearing while you're at it.

80s cruiser L/H side of my engine it looks like diesel leaking


i am willing to bet it is coolant. over time you have to change your intake gaskets. because they will start to leak. now on the newer chevys this is very common to have to replace the intake gaskets every 60,000-100,000 miles. now if the cruser runs very good becides the leak i would definently replace the gasket and keep on driving the old girl. i hope this information was usefull to you and please rate my solution.
Thank you
