I will be doing the pinion seal on my H260 rear diff next week (I hope).... I say "I hope", because I have no idea if its even going to work. I don't know if I am going to need other spares to finish the job, or if the seal I am getting is even going to work. Never done a job like this, so not even sure how to pull the seal. Could make my name seriously "totti". :rolling:

But I have a potato for a camera. My Samsung S3 got squashed by a 33' tyre and now takes pics and video with black spots all over the shot, struggles to focus and always looks hazy...


Example of a pic from my wonderful potato :redface:

How's it David!

Good luck, I hope it goes well! If you have the energy to take photos or video, please do. It will help the next guy who tries (probably me! :biggrin: )

Tomorrow I take the Silver Troll out to Bapsfontein to test the wheel bearing.
The outdoors life for me, thanks.

Part did not arrive in time, and with Fathers day, nothing happened this weekend. Just so much happening that eats up day light hours. I really only have Sundays to do any work.
