You don't need to remove the nipple (that applies to SO MANY situation). The seal retainer will either unscrew or else you can just pull the shaft out while leaving the seal as is. Obviously, if it's the kind that unscrews, then unscrew it. At least that's been my experience.Originally posted by Rockfrog:
How do ya remove the "push on" slip yoke seals on a standard type driveshaft? do you have to remove the grease nipple first?
Yes, we're talkin' about a two-piece driveshaft. In any case, the YJ driveshaft which is one-piece won't have a grease nipple - neither would the tailshaft.Originally posted by Rockfrog:
just for clarity .. this is my bronco driveshaft not the YJ slip yoke, the bronco has a "normal" driveshaft with a push on seal ... are we talkin the the same thing here Larry? sure hope so, it's about 3/4" outa phase.
