so this weekend im gonna try and swap on the ruffstuff 8.8 cover that has been decorating my living room floor for the past couple months, ill need new bolts all around I(longer ones) and some new RTV, do i need to find a new seal for it? or will RTV be enough? if it has the cork seal there (this axle was recently rebuilt) is it reuseable?

If the cork is still in good shape you can reuse it and I dont think you'll need the rtv.

for just the cover the RTV will be enought. I have oil resistant gasket maker on mine and no leaks at all.

alright, time will tell. depends on how good the seal is when i open her up. i redid the seal on my 7.5 with RTV only and it held fine with no leaks at all.

Pretty sure either would be fine by themselves. There really isnt much pressure you need tot worry about like a head or somethin.
