How long is a piece of string? First step would be to find out where it is leaking and why.

Not really, if you know what you're doing.

I understand there's a crush washer that needs to be replaced when you do a pinion seal, and it's easy to get it wrong. Maybe someone else on Fordmods could advise how to do it right.
