Transfer box rear oil seal
Hi, just done a gearbox/transfer box swap due to the old one having developed a whine and the new transfer box has started chucking oil out of the rear oil seal where the prop meets the output flange. I know I should really have replaced all the seals I could on the gearbox & transfer box while it was out but we ran out of time :(
Question is: according to Elsawin, when you pull the output flange off to get to the rear oil seal it takes part of the bearing race with it and just wondering if you can just tighten the output flange back on or whether you need to replace the bearing too??
Also, according to ETKA, there's an adjusting washer sat between the end of the flange & the bearing I think which sounds ominous. Does this have to be professionally set up or can it be done DIY?? :S
