Gaskets for Sterling 10.5. & Dana 50

I ordered one of those aluminum diff covers and being of a time when "you used a gasket" I did some looking around on the interwebs and found Quad4x4 that sells gasket's for our Excursions.

QU40367 DANA 60/70 DIFF GASKET $10.09

QU40400 REAR DIFF GASKET $14.05

https://www.quad4x4.com

I'll probably use a small amount of RTV to set it in place, but I thought I would share the info..

Did you get the appropriate hardware for the rear diff cover?

Honestly, I think most people just use RTV and don't have any problems. I just did mine this past weekend and used RTV... no issues.

I would skip the pre-made felt gasket entirely. I have changed the diff fluid in my Ex twice and used Permatex's gear oil RTV both times. They make an RTV specific for the differential (Permatex part 81182). A 3 oz. tube is about $9. I have had good luck with it; no leaks.

Gasket Makers : Permatex® Gear Oil RTV Gasket Maker

I also used the Royal Purple 75-140W syn for rear fluid. Its a little pricey but it has the friction modifier already mixed. Good luck.

Reusable gaskets.

I bought the Lube Locker reusable gaskets for my axles when I bought the new housings with 4.88 gears and added the '08 SD aluminum cover.
They cost more than a tube of RTV but they can be used over and over so maybe in the end it's a push on the cost. No leaks so far with lots of heavy towing. LubeLocker - LubeLocker Ford/Sterling 10.25"/10.5" and for the Dana 50 up front LubeLocker - LubeLocker Dana 60
