i changed my dif fluid about a week ago and used a fel pro gasket that I picked up at advance for like$2.50 and no leaks, its 6 of one half a dozen of the other. I prefer the gasket because it is cleaner but thats just me.

I'm with Shane. I use the RTV copper. Used it on my rear end when I put it in. Has not leaked yet.

They are junk dude. Never liked them. You could only use their implements on their tractors. What a stupid idea. You can see how that worked out for them.

I am a John Deere man. Thats all we got on the farm. But I will admit, that green paint is pricey.
