Rear Pinion seal question

I have a 1988 110 vin# SALLDHMB7EA338379 2.5L 4 cylinder diesel and I'm finding different info on pinion seal replacements depending on the axle. anyone have any insight on part number or how to tell what axle i have etc.
thanks in advance

Hi Squdface

I'm assuming it's a Salisbury axle and hasn't been changed over the years?

Have a wee peep here to see what it looks like....later rear axles/ Discovery axles look the same as a front axle diff.....also you see all Defender part numbers on this site,for a spot of light reading lol.

There's two different seals....I'd order both and replace with which one you find in there.

AEU 2515 is a leather seal(soak overnight in EP90) which is from the early axles..probably yours

or

STC 4401 a later rubber oil seal with a mud shield.

Go for the make 'Corteco' or 'Bearmach' or even Land Rover (seals made by Corteco also) and not Britpart IMO


All the best

Do not use the leather seal. They suck. If you search on this website, there is a replacement seal from a dana 60 that works much better. Also, be sure to clean your breather as that is a cause of many many pinion leaks (you may not need a seal at all, but with the leather ones they seem to leak no matter what).

In addition to the breather, watch/check the actual flange on the pinion. If it's scored at all, get the Speedi Sleeve #CR 99187 (this will fit a Sals) to put on the flange before you install it in the new seal.
