Austin Healey 3000 Differential Seal Replaced

We’ve begun work on this beautifully presented Austin Healey 3000. differential fluid was leaking due to a faulty seal. Pete has removed the prop shaft before removing the faulty seal. He then installed a new seal, put the pinion shaft back in and torqued it to the correct settings. He then replaced the prop and filled the differential back up with oil. This lovely vehicle is now back to tip-top shape and is ready for the road again.
