Great photos!
Yes,the rear tranny seal needs replacing,but the other thing that is common....
The output shaft may have a deep groove.
It is possible to install the seal part way to avoid that badly grooved area.
When you pull the drive shaft out, it will leak out the back a little.Just be ready for it.
Again,GREAT photos and thanks for those.

The shroud on the end can be taken off with a screwdriver. It is press fit on. There are two indentations on the tail shaft that you can use to start to loosen it up.
Get a gasket puller or you risk scratching the seal surface.
Knock the new gasket in and put the shroud back on and you should be good to go.
Like Dave said check for grooves in the drive line shaft.

Thanks to the both of you!

Going to try to and order the part soon. Might as well change the fluid at the same time. Any recommendations?

So, I'll have to pull the whole drive shaft to get the new seal in? Wont that involve removing the diff?

Or is there a way to removed the front half of the drive shaft only?

Don't do it that way! Remove the bolts at the diff and center support bearing and the 2 piece drive shaft will slide out of the tranny.

Just need to remove the front sections.
Make match mark lines or you will have vibration.
Unbolt the center support, keep track of the washer and spacer orientation.
Unbolt the front sections from the back section. The flange is very close to the exhaust pipe and had to see with the car on the ground. You do not need to separate at the diff. and the diff does not need to come out.

Thanks,Darrow. I was all wrong!:rolleyes:
The front section does come out.Just be sure to mark all separated sections,B-4 removal.
The carrier bearing is (really!) easy to install back in there incorrectly.
This a very good write up. Surprised that no one gave him a response.
The support bearing/housing must be removed to remove the front shaft.Mark the orientation of the spline shaft and the front driveshaft.
The front shaft slides into a spline shaft in the bearing stub end.Noting spacers and washers placements,the center support will slide back enough to remove the front shaft to replace the tail shaft seal.
Use silver or white fingernail polish to mark everything.Maybe a silver Sharpie.
