don't confuse the flange seals with the shaft seals.                            
the shaft seals are what you are picturing - metal/rubber donuts to keep        
the tranny fluid in.                                                            
the flange seals are what steve is picturing - flat cardboard gasket-type       
material in a ring shape with six holes for the half/prop-shaft bolts           
to keep the CVJ goo in the joint.  (how's that for a run-on sentence!)
