I think I'd go along with Disston in just doing what's needed. This is why....

If the pinion:crown isn't well set, you may just get this eventually...

Whilst you have the wheel off, check the splines. If they're horribly worn and need replacing, then this is the time to get the whole lot done professionally, including seals and resetting the pinion:crown relationship.

Of course, if you have the skills and tools, then have a crack. If so, pictorial documentation would be great as it's an area that is seldom attempted and the internet resource to follow for others is generally lacking. You'd need a selection of shims and a few of the big gaskets for some trial and error testing I expect. I've read something about blue dye to check the interface b/w pinion and crown...
