Tech - Help Area / Part number rear pinion seal? 1995 3500HD Spicer 80?
« Last post by ED-NY on May 02, 2019, 04:12:35 PM »
Need to replace the pinion seal on my 1995 3500HD chassis, originally it was a diesel SWB cab chassis.  I assume it's a 11" Spicer 80 but only see listings for 10.5" differentials all with 14 bolt covers.  This one has a 10 bolt cover.

Just need the pinion seal part number before I take it apart.  Only found the part number for the 10 bolt cover so far.

Thanks

Finally replaced the passenger side kingpin on my 95, your post helped tremendously.  Used my lathe to make bushing pushers.

Referring to the picture:
Top pusher used to drive bushing "out" of spindle
Second pusher used to "push" bushing (and seals) into spindle

Used reamer to get approx ID
Then used brake cylinder hone to smooth it down
Finally used the "slotted" fiberglass rod on air tool with wet sandpaper to final polish the bushing

Tried using a piston wrist pin via vise grip to hammer the king pin out..worked great. (And kept my hand away from the large hammer)

Thanks for the interest Richard. Will share my progress as I go along. I had a little time today to take off the exhaust manifolds, turbo, and upper intake after getting the engine on the stand. So far my luck has continued and after peeking into the exhaust ports I saw that only the drivers rear cylinder showed signs of a coolant leak. This is good news and points towards a good set of heads and block, when that cylinder takes on coolant it was just due to the thin weak spot in the original gasket

Im not one of the many afraid of a 6.5
Some of us that aren't 6.5td fans aren't necessarily -afraid- of 'em, just annoyed with 'em. :D  Regardless though, both your projects sound pretty cool.  Interested in seeing the progress on not just the rat rod but also the 6.5td swap into the squarebody!  Bring on the details and pics.

Truck looks great Ed! A 1930 Chevy two door sedan (Chevy version of the model a “Tudor”) is what id like to look into more for a body on the rat. My wife was gifted a 1931 model A Tudor that needs to be put back together, she asked if I wanted to use it for the Rat but I just couldn’t chop up a nice whole Model A that her father gave to her plus I’m not huge of mixing Chevy and ford parts. I’ll have to check out that Killbillet.

I’m also considering swapping the DS4 out on the 6.5 and put a db2 mechanical injection pump to give it the same simple taste the V30 has.
