Leaking pinion seal

Nothing worse than a leaking rear end! – As you can see by the pictures there is a quite a nasty leak which has been diagnosed as a leaking pinion seal. Because of the nature of the leak, gear oil has been flung around under the car including onto the exhaust!

The friendly folk on the vintage mustang forum let me know what sort of diff (8″) I have as there are no casting marks or tags plus the parts I needed. I would honestly be lost without the forum so if you haven’t joined I suggest you do.
