2210 knuckle seals

Postby MizzouBeach » Tue Apr 21, 2020 12:25 pm

Not long ago, I replaced the knuckle seals in my front end, and they are still leaking. I'm wondering if the clearance between the "stationary" upper part and the knuckle lower part is larger than it should be, and if so, how do I make it smaller? Is there a bushing or thrust washer inside the knuckle that coulo be change out for a smaller on?

If your casting where the seal rides is pitted or grooved then the new seal will still leak because it does not have a smooth surface to seal on. You can repair the casting by using the repair sleeve below

I guess it beats having to replace the housing...
Have people had pretty good luck with these? I just took the bevel gear case off and looked at it, and it's not very pitted, but very grooved. What seals between the inserts and the case?

Hey Aaron,
I received the repair sleeves the other day, and I'm wondering if there are any specific instructions for installing them. I will be cleaning the mating surfaces up as well as I can, but do I need to add any sealant, perhaps at the top?
