drive shaft collar 79 camaro

Hi guys, I started getting a rattling sound almost like rocks in a can as soon as I would engage the drive shaft. Last night I jacked up the car and finally found the problem. It is a plane non gasket ring collar that is loose. It looks like a "dust" collar where the drive shaft goes into the bell housing. I was wondering what this actually is/does, and also any suggestions as to how to keep it secured. I am thinking just using rtv as a glue to keep it off the drive shaft. Thanks in advance-

It's a guard to keep rocks and dirt away from the pinion seal. They are presed on and staked from the factory and they do get loose sometimes. You can try the RTV and see if it holds it in place, but I doubt that it will work for long. You can remove it, but that requires removing the yoke from the rear end and that can be tricky. I can't tell if that is oil on the botom of the rear end or if it's black paint. If it's oil then it looks like you need to replace the seal anyway.
