Default 52 F1 question

Hi folks

This looks like pretty straight forward job, but Iíve never done it and would like to know if itís as simple as it looks.

As you can see the rear seal needs replacing.

Remove the two U bolts.
Remove drive shaft

After that does the seal just pull out. Is there a nut securing it in. If yes what size is it?

Just thinking about doing that job the other day.
You'll have to remove the nut and pull the companion flange.
Regular puller for that job. Nut is 3/4-16 thread, 1 1/8" hex.
Since the pinion bearing preload is involved, I'd probably
mark the nut, pinon & companion flange before removing the nut.
R&R the seal and then everything in the reverse order.
There's a companion flange tool mentioned in the manual
to keep that item from turning while you torque the nut.
The nut gets torqued to 140-180. Theoretically, the marks
you placed on the nut and pinion should line up somewhere in
that torque range.
