Thread: Rear seal

    Rear seal

    I took my driveshaft out today but ran into some issues. Ended up pulling the bearing out of the rubber boot on the back of the engine. Can I use a regular hose clamp to put it back on? Has one of those fancy clamps from the factory...

    If your running in the salty stuff....make sure the clamp is stainless steel.

    Put some silicone around the bearing,then it will stick better to the rubber boot.
    This way next time the bearing will stay in.

    +1...just make sure you clean the boot out with a good degreaser so that way the silicone will adhear to the boot
