Yes smear a little Permatex on the seal the the housing. I will help seal the seal to the case. Also will allow the seal to install a little easier.

May have mentioned before---but anyway----had BJ8 tranny and OD rebuilt----supposedly a new oil seal was installed in the rear drive shaft.   Added oil.  It leaked out of the back of the seal.  Pulled nut, removed seal.  now waiting for new seal.  when I put it back, should I use a smear of Permatex around rear of oil seal and on the splines if the drive shaft?

BTW--I'm doing this while the tranny is installed.

Thanks Tom
