hey guys i have a 97 f350 7.3 4x4 and the left rear axle seal was leaking, when i took it apart i found that someone put some kinda of F'ed up axle seal repair kit thing on it..... the axle seal housing was kind of pitted with rust when i pulled it all off, i emery clothed it up and made it all smooth again and put the new seal on, it was ok for about a day or two and then the MOFO started leaking again.... does ANYONE know what i can do or where i can get this seal kit from?!
someone.... PLEASE HELP. i do not want to have to buy a new axle housing
Its probably not a f'd up seal kit. That's how they come from the the manufacturer of the seal kit. If its a sheet metal looking tin can type, its called a speedy sleeve. Its also used for the rear main repair kit from Ford. When your seal mating surface gets pitted with rust or has a groove in it, that's what you use to obtain a nice new surface. Also the tin can piece is a hardened alloy steel so the seal won't rub through.
