I bought a #17 metric bolt about 4 inches long to fit the threaded hole in the rotor which was revealed after removing the retaining bolt. Then I inserted a regular steel bolt with a diameter just smaller than the retaining bolt into the retaining bolt hole. It was a length that left the head of it just shy of reaching the threads in the rotor. Then begin threading the #17 bolt into the hole previously covered by the retaining bolt. It will come in contact with the head of the smaller bolt in the retaining bolt hole. Then continue to thread it in until the pressure pops the rotor off. Be ready because mine popped off and fell on the floor before I could catch it. I found similar instructions to this in the Haynes book for my xj750j Maxim which is also an 82. Sorry I didnt' see this post sooner. I assume you have remedied the situation already but may be this will help others.

2003 gmc sierra 2500 hd axial seal leaks

not enough detail for what end the leak is at. Front sounds strange for a pickup unless 4 wheel drive and then if the style is open shaft behind the brake rotor this would require dissemble of a few more things. If from the rear,which is the common repair, this is from a worn axle bearing on the axle shaft,which causes wear to the rear axle seal either located on the shaft before the bearing to the outside. Or the second option can be a axle seal located in the end of the axle housing. when you remove the axle shaft you would be looking at the end of the housing tube and see this seal. On older models ( My younger days ) they would also install one on the inner side of the housing next to the Gear Unit in the center of housing, ( also known as the PIG Unit ).need further info....

A leaking automatic transmission, is that sign of major trouble for an 89 Wrangler Jeep?

How long has it been leaking? If the transmission ran low on fluid for some time, that could lead to big trouble. If it was kept above the add mark at all costs, then a seal or gasket should end your worries.
The location of the leak is important. If it happens to be a front shaft seal that leaks (fluid would be gathered behind the lower inspection plate, on the bottom front of the transmission), then the transmission would have to be pulled out to replace that seal. But other leaks like a pan gasket leak is pretty easy to fix.

I am replacing the seal, rotors ,bearings, brake pads, calipers are ok, However im having trouble putting back the rotor and the new bearing back in it goes in fine but doesnt go in all the way perhaps...

Making sure the seal & bearing that you got were
correct. I would make sure the parts are correct first.
Then make sure the spindle shaft is not damaged.
If all parts are correct, and there is nothing wrong
with spindle shaft. make sure by sliding bearing all
the way on the shaft. If you replaced the bearing race
make sure they are fully seated in the rotor.

Have a Johnson 130 leaking gear oil on bottom of foot and bottom full of water

What year model? Tools you will need. (1)gear case pressure tester from any outboard dealer. why buy and not build. matching the threads on the drain plugs.(1) detergent and water in a spray bottle. troubleshooting step (1) Remove lower unit from engine as if you were changing the impeller.(2) secure lower unit in a holder so you can drain oil and do visual checks.(3)remove drain plug and vent plug, drain oil(4) reinstall lower drain plug and put pressure tester into vent plug hole(5) pressurize gear case(6)with spray bottle spray gear case at all seals and joints just like you would spray a tire looking for a leak. detergent will bubble at leak.(7) if you find leak at a seal were you will need to remove drive shaft or propeller shaft you will have to buy removal tools and a Clymer repair manuel from your local dealer.(8) hopefully the leak is at the shift shaft or the drain and vent plugs so you wont have to buy special tools to replace seals.(9)if you find a crack in the case have it welded at you local outboard dealer

How do i repair the gasket behind the crank shaft seal?I have a major oil leak and i was told my gasket behind the crank shaft in the front needs to be changed. I have nearly no experience on vehicles so...

Front crank seal. First you have to have room to work, so this may require you remove the radiator and some plastics. Remove the serpentine belt,remove the bolt in the center of the crank pully. The pully should slide off with some resistance but not enough to need a puller. Once the pully is off, there's your sea. Pop the seal out with a screwdriver. Clean the surface of the hole where the seal was, Put some sealer,on the outer perimeter of the new seal and some grease on the seal lips. Evenly tap the new seal into place with the spring side of the seal facing in. make sure seal is at the point the old seal was. Now take the pully and clean the surface the seal rides on, very clean and nd coat with a thin coating of grease. Slide the pully back on and secure with bolt. Then belt, then radiator. Any trouble, holler. Good Luck, Ned

1999 dodge cummins 2500 front axel seals

you need to pull off wheels,brakes, rotor /unit hub bearing, both axles and intermediate shaft, as well as the vac disconnec ton the front axle tube. if only the right side leaks then only then only pull the right axle and intermediate shaft and vac disco. it is a trick with a miller tool to replace the seal. the left side seal is inside the diff and the carrier has to come out to replace it. pete

have you seen hydro pump,the motor assembly was couple to pums assembly.thereare 4 long bolts connected holding motor to pump assembly at the back of motor loosen this to disengage
motor and pump assembly,try to put mark on motor back cover
for reference in putting back.if motor is disengage on pump assembly, of course the rotor of motor still connected on pump assembly.

the shaft seal is connected to the rotor shaft inside pumps assembly,there are 4 bolts holding pump casing front cover loosening this will appear the centrifugal blade connected to rotor shafting holiding by a big nut at tip of rotor shaft.loosen this by socket wrench try to find the size,then pull centrifugal blade with

Oil leak on the rotor timing out put shaft

If you mean the camshaft seal, yes, you would need to pull the timing belt and sprocket off, and if you are anywhere near the service interval for the belt, replace it and the water pump (unless the water pump is very easy to service, and the tensioner.  
You will probably need a (gear/sprocket) puller to get the sprocket off and a another type of (seal) puller to get the seal out.  You could probably extract the old seal with a screwdriver, but it's not recommended.  Get a Haynes manual (around $20) before you even contemplate doing this youself. If you haven't done this before, are mechanically inclined. and have all the tools, you will spend about 1/2 a day to do either the cam seal by itself, or the seal, timing belt, tensioner and water pump.  Once you have it all apart, the last three components will only add an hour to the job, and you won't be stranded when the timing belt breaks.
good luck ..ajm

Maytag Dishwasher-pdb2430awx-Leaking

I believe that you must buy the plastic pump housing.....And that vinyl type shaft seal comes with that..I think!!!!
I have the same problem.....I changed the regular seal kit at a cost of $30.00 CND....Which is like what? 100.00 American.
Anyways mine still leaks after all that. Turns out there is so much rust between the nylon seal that is attached to the motor shaft, that water works its way down there. Funny that seal does not come with the common seal replacement kit. Im going to check tomorrow to see If I can get that seal alone. My concern is that after I drive for another hour one way to get that seal. Am I only going to put it on just to find out that the shaft is pitted to much by the rust to seal again? I am so tired of buyin ****!!!!!!
