Reverse is directly to the right of 6th. So from 6th, go up, right, back.

For rear mains, I always clean the metal surface, clean it with brake parts cleaner, final clean it, air dry 10 min, then light rtv on outer edge of seal and inner metal edge, and press in by fingers/thumbs. Never had a front/main/cam seal leak doing this.

Just realized my diff leak might be from the breather. I filled it on the floor. Would explain why it only leaks when hot, and why it seems to be everywhere.

Filled it while it was lying on its back?

Blast the whole thing down with a can of brake parts cleaner and wait for more oil, just to be sure.

I will tonight once its up on stands. Last time I did that and left it overnight I got nothing. Which is why it kinda makes sense.
<br />Not lying on its back. Just sitting flat like it would in the car.

I actually just barely did this on my breather cap as well. Was frustrated that it was still leaking after replacing the diff seals and I had a **** load of dirt/sand/grease in the vent holes. No leaks since.

Interesting. I'm wondering if I overfilled mine. But a clogged breather could do something. Is the breather on the housing or pumpkin?

Top of the diff housing, just unscrew it (12 or 14) and blast with carb/brake cleaner and an air compressor.

Awesome. The trans breather was a bitch to get out. I had to destroy my old extension housing lol. I was scared for a second.
<br />More info on extension housing swap will come soon. It was straightforward but I took a whole buttload of pictures.
