There is a play if i push the yoke up and down, does that tell me of a bad bushing then?I would say seal leaks are not uncommon. Especially if the bushing or yoke have some wear and play it can wear out a seal quicker. And a pitted yoke surface will too. Pretty easy to replace the seal but I would check that the bushing and yoke are still tight and free of play.
Yeah it is on a lift, hmm not what i know about, i think it is all originalWhen you took that picture was the car on a lift so the rear could hang or on the ground ?
Reason I ask is that yoke looks a little to far out from the trans. but if rear is hanging you are probably good
Do you have a different yoke , driveshaft , trans. than original ?
As AR67GTX stated above it could be any of those things mentioned.
I bought that same tool when I redid mine last September. A little pricey, maybe, but quite the time saver. Now do I keep it as I have only one 727, lol.

No, used a hose clamp to get it started. You might comtact the seller and ask about one for a 904. The tab at top is attached to a ring inside. You pull tab to pull ring up inside tool to install then push it forward before pulling bushing.Hi all
Would this tool work on a
I think the bushings are different
Sizes on a 727 and 904.
Yes, but when the less experienced of us dislodge the main cluster trying to get at the “C” clip securing the tail housing and lose a few needle rollers out of the input, it becomes a much bigger job.
There are no needle rollers between the input and the output shafts. The is a snap ring holding the planetary geartrain and output shaft as a unit. It can't pull apart. If you use internal flat snap ring pliers, the snap ring releases easily. Pull the speedo gear housing, 1 bolt, 2 screws in the snap ring cover plate, and 7 bolts holding the tail housing.
