    Keep blowing axle seals

    I'm about to pull my hair out with this thing. I keep blowing the left side rear axle seals. I've ran new vents replaced with good parts, no burs on anything and after a few hundred miles there they go again. It's always the same ones. Any thoughts or issues I may be overlooking?

    I recently had all the classic bad PCB issues no dash power no start etc. I removed the old one and something had blown apart inside because it sounded like it was full of rocks when shaking it. Curious what would come apart inside?

    Got a 24si alternator from 74m35a2 and here is how the installation went. On first mock up it was clear the pulley was going to sit to far forward.

    new to painting

    I will be painting the 923 this spring. I will be buying the cheap-o harbor freight gun and more than likely using the behr paint. With being new to any sort of painting does the paint get cut with thinner like automotive paint or is it a poor and go.

    painted warning lights

    Im just curious why the gov. would paint over the warning lights on the dash by the gauges. I thought they were just blanks but I unscrewed the lenses and there were bulbs behind it so not blanks. Has the nice thick green stuff sprayed over them. All this on my 923a0
