View Full Version : Ford 9" Seal Removal, help!

My buddy is working on his 63 Ford Galaxie right now, and both he and I can't figure out how to remove the pinion seal, no matter what he has done it won't budge. Is there something he is missing or just needs brute force? Thanks in advance.

Use a small flat blade screwdriver or chisel and hit the seal on the edge closest to the housing towards the center, kind of at the angle of your arrow. Be careful not to hit the pinion splines. When you get a hole you can pry the seal out. Sometimes it'll just bend in a little and loosen up. FRANK

Yes, more force. You will basically bend up the seal taking it out, but it should be replaced anyway. Put a chisel on the outer edge and give it a good wack, it'll come out.
