    I am reassembling a Warn Overdrive after cleaning it and replacing some bearings. In case it matters it is an older Warn front shift unit with roll pins on the tapered nose washer.

    I ordered a set of gaskets and seals from AA and there are two "O" ring seals in the kit, one is about 5/8" and that goes in the bore for the shift rail, but the other is about 1 3/8" and I do not have a clue where it goes as nothing in the unit had such a seal when I disassembled it.

    Anyone know where this larger "O" ring would be used?

    I could be missing something, but I don't see that larger o-ring in my Warn OD Parts/installation and operation brochure (Catalog 4551).

    By law, every job should have at least one extra part upon reassembly. They just supply that part to fulfill that law.

    I think ITLKSEZ is correct.

    How different is the Saturn O/D? Could the kit be a single rebuild kit that fits both Warn and Saturn with the addition of an O ring?
