I'd appreciate any suggestions on installation. Right now I'm trying to decide if I should just put the old style in or to get another new seal. I have ruined two seals so far and need to improve my installation success.

Thanks in advance!

I think I also had to taper the end of the seal shell to get them started. Where that light blue area is. I just used a thin coat of RTV to replace the moulded on light blue stuff.

Dana has a lot of their service manuals online. I didn't scour it to see if the inner seals are covered in depth, but it should come in handy for reference, torque specs, etc.
