D44 Axle Housing

Question about a Scout Rear D44 I am working on. Putting new R/P in it. My question is about the rubber seal on the inside of the housing that the diff end bearing flushes against...

Can you shed any light on this. Is it just a bead of Sealant or is it an actual seal or O-ring?

Thanks..

It is excess silicone from when they pressed the tubes into the housing. They used it to seal and for lubrication for the press fit. Peel it out that is fine.

Do I have to put anything back in or leave it bare?

Nope I pull that out so it doesn't trap anything in there and it helps allowing the diff fluid to return to the housing.

BTW, My lockrite is still going strong. Advanced Trails at Camp Jeep to the Badlands...

Back to the garage. Got the Perches welded on and now we have to put the sof-locker in w/ 4.56s.
