FRONT DIFFERENTIAL BOLT IN COVER ?
Been a while since I visited the forum.
I have a 1984 G.W.
My front differential has a 5/16" bolt from the inside of the front diff cover that has a nut & gasket on the outside of the diff cover. It has developed a leak at this bolt. I tried to tighten the bolt but it just spins. What is the purpose of this bolt ? What is it securing on the inside of the diff ? I assume I'll have to pull the diff cover off and put a new gasket on to stop the leak ?
PS, the jeep has been converted to manual hubs with the shift collar welded inside the front diff, if that has any bearing with my above bolt issue.
Thanks for your help,
