    Glad to hear the new combo seems to be better balanced.
    Sounds like Dave got a good deal on the install assist.

    Well we all know that smell… gear oil. Noticed the smell from the rear end and wouldn’t ya know it, a leaking rear axle and a patch of oil on my right rear wheel on the passenger side. The was no excessive noise or grinding from the rear so I figured it was the axle seal so I picked up 2 rear seals from Heffs. $32.00 for two! Anyhow, I decided to do both seals and a gear oil change at the same time seeing as generally when one goes the other isn’t to far behind. For those that don’t know, you do not have to remove the parking brake assembly to do the job. So anyways here’s a couple of picks of the smelly mess that’s involved!

    Not a bad life on those original seals eh! And $32 and some gear oil is not a bad repair bill either.
    Are your wheel bearings still original?

    Yes, original wheel bearings. We’ll have to see how long they last, fingers crossed!
