What are you using and how are you doing it? You should have a good long bar and give it a hard pry. The whole seal should deform and pop out. Done a thousand seals. More cowbell.

OK, one screwdriver, and two removal tools in the garbage later.

I'm pretty sure I need a different seal....

Also, ...what direction does the bearing washer go in? It fell out of the housing and one side has a beveled edge on the inner and outer lips, the other side is 90 degrees.

Also... how do I actually get to the bearing? I expected to be able to pull the bearing out at this point, inspect, grease, etc...

Also... without the flange attached, the shaft and bearing now move around in the housing, is this normal? When the whole thing was as is, before I started the job, there was very little to no play in the shaft.

I'm not familiar with Series trucks at all, but that looks similar, if not the same, to the rear pinion seal on a Defender 110 which is a leather seal. If you get another leather one, make sure it is in good condition before installation. I had to order two or three through Land Rover before I got one that wasn't falling apart in the package.

So you're saying I bought the wrong replacement? ...out of time. This is my transport to work at 7:00 a.m. tomorrow morning. I thought this would be a simple job... even for me.

Inside diameter outside diameter and length are all that matter. If those match you are good to go.

Yes everything is loose with the pinion nut off. That is what holds it together.

"Seems" to fit right. But I won't claim it's done till I put some miles on it and see no leaks.

On a side note, the engine is running better than it has for years. The truck is actually half normal, almost boring to drive even.

No, there may be an updated part that is a modern seal. The one I did was an NAS 110 and I got the seal through Land Rover. I have no idea what is available for a Series (or Defender) aftermarket.

If it fits, its the right seal.

Here's a question I've been meaning to ask, and this project brings it up again: Where do I find things like torque settings and the proper direction of the spacer for the bearing? I'm looking in the Green Bible. Nothing about this in there that I can see, other than a diagram of the parts with not enough detail to be able to see which direction the spacer goes.

Have a look here :http://www.retroanaconda.com/landrov...ing_brakes.pdf

The seals have changed form over the years so don't worry about them looking different is it a snug fit around the drive flange?, the distance piece has the bevel towards the flange i believe are there witness marks that match the diameter of either end?
The manual in the link has the torque specs - yes it a S3 but they are the same for the S2 axle.
regards all
Gren
