Like I said...anytime you are free just call me and I will head to the storage unit immediately, if not sooner. Headed that direction in a bit to go to Stevinson.

I think the inner (where the ball is and the leak) set is a kit with the rubber, felt and metal ring.

I wouldnt think the studs being loose would cause a soupy leak. Id check the seal to make sure its installed in the right direction.

The arm nuts loosening is a common problem. One of the guys on mud came up with a technique. Tighten smack the bottom with a hammer in an upward motion and repeat both steps till its real tight and no gaps.

Recheck after 100 and 1000 miles.

Ken, I might drop by for your 54mm socket. Hmm...loose knuckle studs plus driving through a lot of water maybe cause the soupy leak?

Unless you have done the trunion bearings recently, I would do them so you take the Front axle off the list for a long time. You should take the knuckle off to replace the rear felt/rubber/metal and clean it up real well.

I would do the whole job with not having to get in there again as the incentive

also, andother hub socket that will work is the Craftsman 2-1/8" socket is 3/4" drive and is about a heavy and solid a hub socket as you will find. It weighs about 3# and is a perfect fit in the 80 hub ( Per Mike Maynard - Beowulf)

went ahead and got the trunion bearings...$180 for one side, including knuckle studs and nuts....seems a lot more than the packing party.

guess I know what I am doing tomorrow.

Bummer about the problem. Despite the seeming high cost, you will be real pleased to have all new parts in there.

Hopefully the threads in the knuckle were not messed up and are still good. I don't know just how similar the 80 is to the 40/60 knuckles, but if you have shims make sure to keep track of which are for the top and bottom.
