Adjustable inner CV axle seal installer

Post by xirdneh » Mon Sep 21, 2015 2:10 pm

For installing seal in differential housing where CV axle goes
the FSM says to install to a depth of around .3" (i cannot remember the exact distance and i do not have the book handy)
if seal has been leaking and you are re-using the CV axle sometimes I change the depth that i set the seal so it rubs in a smoother part of the axle
with this installer you can adjust the depth by twisting the threaded part
i used a steel pipe for the threaded part but a black ABS part would work fine

pictures are in reverse order so start at bottom and go up

Love those Tercell 4x4 wagons but they sure suffer from road noise.

what are you talking about? is that zen-speak or technical computer-speak?
