I have an 86 ford bronco with a 9" rear end. Question: What would cause the vent tube to leak gear lube? I just recently replaced the pinion seal hoping for no more leaks...that was 7 days ago. Went in the garage and now it looks like the vent tube was leaking on the floor. Any ideas? Was it pushing out excess fluid? Help!!
Yes the tube is there and clipped in the vertical fashion. I did check it out and the leak is coming from the top of the vent tube and follows the hose down to its lowest point, where as distrubuting the gear lube on the garage floor...I'm thinking at this point it is just overfilled. If anyone thinks otherwise please let me know. Thanks guys!
