Pack it with good quality grease. That was what the factory did on '67 buses. Plus, it doesn't leak out !!

i used landrover swivel hub grease(designed by landrover as a bodge for when the oil seals are leaking in the front axle steering joints) its thicker than ep80 oil but thiner than grease and it still pours ok this was ok in mine as it slowed down the oil leak :lol: available from most independant landrover spares places for about £5

One of ours vans is leaking too . . . was wandering how you filled it up, grease option sounds a great idea.
