View Full Version : Out Put Shaft Seal Leaks Again

09-30-2009, 09:10 PM
Replaced my output shaft seal very carefully -- using Permatex 270200 sealant and locker on the flange and threads but it leaks right away a slow drip but not very fast-- should I wait a bit to put another seal in (ie swelling and seating) or will another seal be required -- are the flanges another cause of the problem and should I consider replacing the flange (I see Rock auto has a sleeve to repair the flange) also -- the cars a 1990 with 190,000

be sure when to torque the flange nut first at 140 ft lbs. to push the seal in place. Then u need to
Loosen again torque it again at 89 ft-lbs. :thumbup:
