Thank you, thank you, thank you. I will learn to live with it and maybe one day I will install Saginaw steering.
1962 f134 fresh off frame build.
I have 31x10.50x15 tires and a completely rebuilt Ross steering system from the knuckles up.
It is very hard to...
My old pinion seal says ASD 142235. Is this a Willys part number? Came from a 3B D25.
Anyone know a National equivalent ?
The new bearing will be the front pinion bearing. I dinged the original and instead of taking a chance I decided to replace it. Might make my...

I have a new...
I'll check everything again tomorrow. I'll try to get better photos.

Here are photos of the contact pattern. The ring gear backlash is .003.
What do you think?
The gears were used in a complete axle that I bought. I don't know the history but the teeth on both R&P looked good but there was some slack...

Both gear ratio's are 5.88. The R&P are not a matched set. When I opened the differential
the wear pattern actually looked good. I will try to...
what will happen if I run a front axle with mismatched ring and pinion numbers?
I found that properly setting up a ring and pinion is a very difficult task and takes an amateur like me days of trial and error. I really don't...
Just the pinion and related bearings, seals and shims. Everything else is fine.

There is no joy in Willysville.
Will post pics. if I can figure out how to upload to photobucket from my phone.
Well, this is very embarrassing but I guess I have to confess.
I did not have a mechanical failure, I had a mechanic failure.
It seems that I did...
Evidently it was in 4wd but the hubs were free.
It will not roll now with the hubs engaged.
It was not making any noise before this happened....
