Triumph TR6 - Imagine...no more leaks

Sung to the tune of "Imagine" by John Lennon:

"Imagine there's no leaking
From underneath my car
I don't know if this could be
Since it is a TR.

Imagine all the gaskets
Being dry as a bone.

You hoo oo oo oo
You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm going to overcome
I won't have no more puddles
By the time that I am done."

OK, I'm on a quest. Having used some Hylomar on the gasket between the fuel pump and block, I now have no leaking at that joint. I'll slowly work through the car, but one thing that I'm wondering is if it is possible to remove the back of the differntial without removing the differential? Has anybody tried/done this? Thanks!

Don't get too excited, I straightened and rejointed my sump with Hylomar, it lasted about a year before a small leak developed Grrrrrrr

Try draining all fluids from your car and your dream quest will come true:)
On the dif thing...not sure if you can get at the top bolts..bottom yes. That is the the one place my 6 does not leave a puddle to mark her spot.

While Hylomar is good stuff, I found that using good old Permatex #2 (the pliable black-brown goop) provides the most reliable seal. Don't forget to put it on the sump bolt threads too.
