salisbury diff leaking shaft seal

Hi holden fans, can any one tell me how to fix a leaking shaft seal on a salisbury diff? I have taken the driveshaft off by undoing the u bolts around back uni joints. It looks like there is a single large nut that needs to come off. Do I just belt that nut off and take the yolk part out? thanks AJ

It's vital that you Mark The Nut and Pinion before you undo it so that it be retightened to *exactly* the same position.

This sets the Pre-load on the Pinion.

Once you have done that you can remove the Nut and count the number of turns as you do so.

It's going to fcuking tight so you want a top quality socket and breaker bar with cheater bar etc. Get lined up on it good so you can get plenty of purchase.

Most Important: If a home job, make sure the car is safely jacked with solid stands and even tyres under the sills as backup so the whole lot doesn't come down on top of you when you're heaving on it.
