Re: First oil leak. Metal in rear diff
Sounds like a rear main seal; a common issue on the older LTs. This is a major tear down, but there is a LOT of good information (detailed directions, and even parts lists) here on the site.
Will need to do the clutch, since you have most likely contaminated it with oil. When I did my rear main seal, I also replaced the clutch slave, since I was in there.
I have attached a great document put together by Kenny Crawford (BlauBeeMr). He used the information he learned on this site, to compile into a single source.
