So the differential on my 35 Terraplane has one pipe plug in it that I can see.
I read one sentence in the lubrication section of the Procedure Manual that says to "drain & flush the unit".
I take it that to change the gear oil you remove the plug and have to suck the old gear oil out with a vacuum pump?
Any ideas on how to flush the differential and what the flushing fluid may be?
I assume that you'd then fill it to the level of the plug hole?
Also when I was under the car I see that one right rear wheel is showing signs of a oil leak.
A few questions on this.
In the Master Chassis Parts book it shows item "B6-6 Drive shaft felt washer and retainer assembly" on the inner side of the wheel bearing and item "B7-3 Wheel bearing adjusting cap oil seal" outside the wheel bearing.
Is it possible to blow the inner B6-6 felt washer seal out by pumping to much grease into the zerk at the outer end of the axle?
OR Is it possible to blow both the inner B6-6 felt washer and outer B7-3 oi seals out by pumping to much grease into the zerk at the outer end of the axle?
I assume the latter as I have something leaking into the wheel drum.
I'd found rear wheel bearings back in 2015 so I'm all set there.
Actually sold several sets to other club members both here in the States & Australia.
I'd like help with finding both the inner felt seals and outer oil seals if anyone has manufacturer & part numbers.
If the dimensions are know I have an old Chicago Rawhide catalog that may be useful in finding a like kind.
I'm also looking for any guidance in tackling these jobs.
Thanks and Regards,
