According to TM 9-1803B and snl g305 there should be a oil slinger (WO 636566) between the outer bearing and gasket on the diff pinion.
On three axles that I've dismantled it was not installed.
I am setting up the differential with new bearings and don't have a oil slinger. Does it make any difference with or without it?
Iguess I can't use other material than steel, since its has to be stable because of the preload on the bearings.
Regards and ya'll have a nice weekend!!
