Question about Ford Ranger
Drive it home with a ball peen hammer.Just a note here,behind every leaking seal is a worn out bushing,so don't be surprised if replacing the seal doesn't stop the leak.Inside the tailshaft housing is a bushing that engages the driveshaft yoke.It should be a fairly tight fit when the yoke is installed and the driveshaft is bolted up.Grasp the driveshaft and yoke and wiggle it up and down,should be just a couple thousandths play.If excessive play,it needs a new bushing which entales removing the extension housing,driving out old bushing,and driving in new bushing which requires bushing drivers.But the seal,you just drive it in with a hammer.It will want to walk the opposite direction,so you have to press it down with your other hand while hitting it with the hammer.Also make sure the seal has some lube on it where it contacts the yoke.A dry seal will rip and leak.
