    You got a center pin that make sure you are centered

    You need to put the race. The puller is pulling the bearing cage so with the cup it hold all the bearing together

    Got a good improve last night

    I went from 0.040 to 0.025 them 0.060 to finish to 0.095 on pignon depth. I am on the tight side of the backlask with a 0.006".

    Been suggested to had a 0.003-0.005" to see if it can be more centered. Otherwise other told me that i can close it on those spec

    Does that make the readings more accurate? Or just easier to read? Just wondering why.

    Happy FEF to everybody.

    Front end is almost complete. I had re work the ram assist articulation.
    Now i'm about to fill up with gear oil the front axle. And put the wheel back.

    Next step is the rear gear. At least is not the same amount of work to get to the carrier as the front is ahah

    That looks like a stout axle!
    How come both knuckles have 2 holes for the steering & tie rods? Is that just how the dana 44 front axles are made? Or am I seeing the drivers side wrong?

    Keep up the good work!

    Front axle is done. Now time to attack the rear.

    It will be an easy re-gear on the rear. I have use the same pignion depth for starting point, only have to set a proper backslash. I almost felt bad getting proper ajustment on the first trial....

    So rear axle was finaly a short job. Took less time than the front. Now i just need to finish up the wiring for the front locker and i will be ready for the summer :)
