They are so smooth and bind free offroad, I don't think I could ever go back to U joint axles!
yes, I just put some Rcv in my father 06's rubicon and it just took a few feet to feel the difference. No i wont ever come back to u-joint.
I bought a bearing puller from vevor. Product is nice, just need to a real test over my rear carrier. The bearing i pulled is my install bearing that has been work so lide on and off easily.
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
Not mush progress this week-end. May have working 3 hour total.
So i grind up the inside case for the locker tab to be free inside of it, and drill the hole for the wire of the e-locker.
I have clean both axle tube using my shop vap and a long brush that i normaly use to clean my garage pellet furnace
First time setting a new ring and pignon. I'm way out of the off the ballpark.
I made myself some dummy bearing so i can make ajustement easier.
Still need to out the pignon depth.
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
Got some trick on facebook to get a better reading. I have thin the marking stuff with some gear oil.
Does that make the readings more accurate? Or just easier to read? Just wondering why.
It make it easier to read
Front end is getting close to be complete again.
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!
This dana 44 is coming from inter scout 2. I dont know why they have two hole on the driver side...good question there.
Also scout arm are near the height of a dana 44 hi steer.
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
