after refitting axle tubes, backplates, bearings etc. the gearbox oil is leaking out.
i first thought it was coming from the bearing seal, but on closer inspection it's coming along the axle splines. I think there is a load of oil in that axle tube due to the way i had the box positioned when working on it.

Is that the little o-ring that has bust?

It's not necessarily bust. If you had a lot of oil in the tube and the hub nuts weren't torqued up straight away, oil would leak past the uncompressed o-ring.
bingo! the drums not on yet and i had it tipped up quite a bit on the floor. saved me a stip down thanks!
