Is your vent hose clogged? Don't blow into it, you'll only put the blockage into the axle tube, remove it then blow it. Also remove the vent nipple/brake line T thingy holder bolt to and clean it. Otherwise, I have nothing for ya.

I envy those that know exactly which modification to make and in the most logical of sequences. But not enough to trade for my meanderings and misfires.

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.
