Question about 1993 Ford F250
2 issues.st is the truck has dual fuel tanks and the empty one seems to leak at the gas neck. How can an empty tank leak this way? Vacuum cap issue?
2nd....Rear wheel seal repair.....apeears to have leaked a lot. Is there that much grease in the rear seal to leak all over the brake drum?.....Also how labor intensive is the repair, something one could do at home? Special tools needed?
The only way the empty tank could leak is that the switch that controls the two tanks is pumping fuel into your empty tank. This is a common problem with the Ford trucks. In fact Ford had a recall on these to replace the switch for this very problem.
Problem 2: The F-250 you have probably has a full floating axle in it. Remove the wheel. Remove the brake drum. Remove the 8 bolts on the end of the axle stub. Remove the axle. Then you will need to remove the large axle lock nut and the lock ring under it. Then remove one more axle nut. Carefully remove the hub and dont let the outer bearing drop to the floor as it might damage it. Flip the hub over and remove the old wheel seal. Check the bearings. If o.k. put them back in the hub. Install the new wheel seal. Then reverse the disassembly procedure to place it all back together. When finished refill the differential. And be sure to clean the oil from the brake drum and replace the brake shoes if they are contaminated so badly that you can't get them clean again. No special tools needed. Just a good all around assortment to accomplish this task. If you need to purchase tools it would be a good investment anyway. Tools never go out of style. They have uses over and over and pretty much pay for themself.
