agreed it's not ideal ... but as an overlanding hack to repair a badly leaking seal ... I'd do it.

Oh sorry for the confusion

Maybe it is just the earlier defenders, but on my truck, there is a 1.5cm x 1.5cm square indentation at the 11 o'clock position of the inside of the knuckle (where the swivel ball seal meets the knuckle). If you overfill with gear oil, the oil will come flowing out of the identation next to the swivel ball seal. When submerged, I imagine it will let water in as well.

I used to know some guys who would sneak out at 11 o'clock, but only on payday.

Now you guys are making me nervous!

I'll see if I can take off the seal retainer and take a quick photo.

Actually the entire chassis and axles were recently sandblasted and resprayed with an undercoat. Also disassembled all wheel assemblies, sand blasted and repainted. It was a mess of surface rust and mud before.

Hopefully the chrome balls weren't sand basted.
