Thanks guys

Driveline / Are these transmission mount bushes?
« on: November 17, 2012, 12:21:25 PM »
I have a holden transmisson and 253 in the beddie, the road worthy states that I have to replace the Gearbox mount bushes. I wasn't present at the road worthy so I'm guessing they're the rubbers in the image.
 I can find the mount online but can't seem to find these bushes online anywhere.

do they go by another name? Any help appreciated.

To wrap this axle/seal post up;
Bought the seal for $5 wacked it in, difficult but it's in there. Bearings are good but need a grease. Axle back in, new shoes...

Decided to drain the diff oil and found water in there. Creamy soup. This is not a four wheel drive, how dd that get in there?? I'm going to read up on this and start a new thread if problems come about.

Cheers to all the replies, much appreciated and no way I could have done it without your help

I've been searching for ages in an attempt to identify what's actually on the beddie, as I want to remove parts correctly (mainly the seal).
I definitely have a borg-warner 9 bolt diff, (image attached).
Seems the rear brakes are from a Ford Falcon.

Sorry this is dragging on, had hoped to have it wrapped up...my  main problem is removing the 'retainer seal' or whatever it's called. So the axle and bearing are out, that's fine. It's just the seal is attached to a metal 'retainer' (orange'y coloured metal at arrow in the image attached), I saw on another site a guy removing such a retainer/seal by sticking a lever inside the retainer and forcing it out. I tried pulling the seal out and ripped it slightly.

I'm really hesitant on levering/forcing this off until I know it's the right way to do it.
Thanks guys.

here's mine;

in pic1 it's a black seal about a 1 cm wide, probably 3/4 of it is on metal then it extends a bit into the void, towards diff. I didn't want to damage it but it was quite easier to grab the inside lip and pull to the outside, it seemed to like it would peel off OK.

I can't see any damage anywhere, resulting in a leak. I might visit a shop and give them the axle to squizz.

Can't help you I'm afraid, my beddie has holden front discs, transmission, & engine... I'm guessing the rear axle/drums are original??

OK, the axle came out easy! The advice has been spot on!
What I found (pics attached);
- There seemed to be a fair bit of gunk, greasy dirt buildup, where the bearing sits. The gunk had small hard bits (metal, road gunk??). I'm not sure whether it was deposited there as I pulled the axle out, I don't think so as the seal was pretty clean.
- The 'inner' seal (at the arrowhead in pic1) looked fine.
- Bearing spun fine, not crunchy, quite smooth.

So, not knowing what to replace... is it common to;
- just replace the seal (arrowhead in pic 1)
- take axle to mechanic to replace the bearing and it's seal (pic2)

Also, should I do both axles whilst I have it up? The other is not leaking.
As always, appreciate the help, I'm enjoying this.... I'll move on to a number of easier jobs on the beddie whilst awaiting the next move.

the front brakes have been converted to holden disks, I thought the rear drums were still original. Anyway, going through the manual now... any alternatives to a slide hammer?
