This is a discussion on pinion seal within the Drivetrain forums, part of the LSx Technical Help Section category; What should I torque my pinion seal down to? And is ok to fill the tranny by the shifter hole?...

check your blinker fluid and your muffler bearings too

Yes, you can fill the trans through the shifter hole.
I'm assuming you're talking about torquing the compagnion flange nut when you say "torquing the pinion seal".
The nut needs to be torqued so that the crush collar compresses and the pinion bearing preload is 10-15in/lbs for used bearings, or 15-30in/lbs for new bearings. Pinion bearing turning torque is checked with an inch pound beam style torque wrench.

I counted the threads and make 3 inline peen marks on the flange, nut and gear.
