Default Diff pinion seal weeping oil

Recently my diff pinion seal has started to badly weep oil. Have bought a leather type seal earlier but looks a bit weird to me. There are modern type rubber seals available as well. Any preferences or experiences out there ? Would Jaguar MkII diff pinion or any other Dana44 seals fit as well ?

HI Bernd,
Any pinion seal for a 44 will work. I'm not at the shop so I can't give you a pt no.
If I remember, I'll look it up on Monday.

Hi Dale,

you rescue me. Just to visualize what I have here is the Jaguar MkII rubber type seal . It has an outer diameter of 71.2mm . Can't find the leather type one at the moment but will take a picture later. Don't want to start the job before feeling safe to have the correct replacement...

Cool Seals & Seals

DANA 44 seals are quite common. The hard part of the project will be re-torquing the pinion flange . . . . . .

That seal looks correct to me. I typically order the seal from a Jag or a Jeep, whichever vehicle I think the parts person will understand.

Thanks. Any opinions whether the modern rubber type of the leather type seal would be better ? I heard the leather keeps soft while rubber hardens out especially when the car is not moved regularily...

Still no comments:-(

Update: The actually hardest part is to make the pinion nut break loose. Tried it last weekend but no way with whatsoever wrench extension I used. Appearantly have to use an air wrench otherwise no chance...

Default Not done everyday

But if I had .05 cent for every 36mm breaker bar I broke on a VW brake drum nut I'd well have maybe a dollar Sometimes the only thing that would work is a really tough air assist ..
