Re: LT noise
Dave, you may be able to clarrify for me - I have written previously that my pinion needle bearing inner raceway appeared to have moved away from the pinion face by approximately 1mm. Noted this during crown bearing replacement, however, looking at your 2 pics it may be that I didn't notice the inner race does not abut the pinion face, rather there is a small land which is proud of the pinion face and the raceway rests on that. Can you please confirm this for me as it's not quite visible on the pics due to the angle they were taken. I may not have a displaced inner raceway (yet) if this is the case. Also, on the 8 bolt holes in the alloy casing, does anyone apply sealant around the threaded holes prior to final assembly ? I believe it would be possible for oil to leak out along the bolt shank and under the bolt head if that casing joint was not sealed. I just applied a small amount of Permatex, but there didn't appear to have been anything there ex the factory.
