A lot of drivers don't bother with the O-ring, just use the paper gasket.

ive never had that problem have you been using that for a long time? maybe the diff housing has worn out? the orings should be fine and even if they swell up it should only stop the leaking.

Unless he's torn them.

Remember to always put a drop of oil or green shock slime on any o-ring you install. Less friction= a longer life and a better seal.

From what I remember (as it's been a while since I've built one from the package), those particular o-rings are clear even on the Xray diff. The previous owner may just have not prepped them properly.

Stomer's Hobbies Search Part# XRA971240 25x.7 O'rings (10qty) $7.95. Lubricate w/slime or silicone grease, It'll blowup and seal better, also use torque sequence to tighten equally.
