I done the rear bearings and seals etc last yr and blew out the breather hose everything was running fine for about 6 months then the L/hand side inner seal started leaking I replaced it but it leaked again after a few months. Tried fitting the correct size speedy sleeve but it was to small so after talking to the bearing supplier I got it from they informed me the axles should be 42 mm neat in diameter where inner seal sits my L/hand axle is 42.6 mm. (I haven't checked it against the right side because it's not leaking so I'm not going to disturb it unless I have to) They said the extra pressure could generate more heat and cause the seal to fail they also said I might have an aftermarket axle which is slightly larger in diameter than the original one. Doesn't seem like much but it's causing a problem looks like I will have to get it turned down to the correct size has anybody else had this problem with axle size. Thanks
