    You mean that relieved area in the middle of the spindle? It's between the bearings which sit on the very slightly raised areas on either side. Dunno, there's nothing touching there other than grease - the hub otherwise is empty between the bearings. Maybe it's cheaper or faster to machine it that way, since it does not need the precision of the bearing locations.

    What do you guys think of the wear inside this Bendix joint? Of course I dropped the balls out of it, but found them (and the center ball pin).

    According to the FSM there’s supposed to be a retaining pin, Is that the retaining pin broken off above my thumb In the first pic of the short side?

    Pete (or anyone else) can you elaborate on why the studs are superior to bolts? I'd love to understand why just for the sake of learning. Getting ready to reassemble and I have new studs to install.

    Technically, studs torque more accurately because they don't have to be twisted like a bolt does. And it it feasible to get total thread engagement with a stud, in a blind hole. The hole threads do not get worn or stripped by frequent disassembly cycles, and a worn stud can be easily replaced more easily than retapping a stripped hole. Also studs can be a guide during assembly.

    The point I wanted to make originally is that some stud applications are engineered so that the body of the stud makes a very precise fit in the bored hole. On my 1950 Willys Jeep truck, for instance, the steering arm/king pin cap would never stay tight if fastened with bolts. They allowed too much rotational movement of the arm assembly versus the knuckle. The OEM studs were necessary to firmly locate the cap and prevent play.

    I found this part in a box that came with my 70 CJ project. I'm all done and don't think I need any other parts. Can someone tell me what it is and where to put it? (not shove) CAM00267-1.jpg

    Looks like a bracket you'd bolt on and hook a return spring to.

    If it is about 3" long, there is a bracket like that on the crossmember. I cant remember off-hand exactly what it is for, but I think Bowbender is right, for a return spring of some kind.

    Spring anchor for the transmission-type parking brake actuating lever.

    That it. I just put things together and installed the parking brake and thought of that but couldn't find where it mounted. I just used a wire to the frame. Is there a pic somewhere showing where it goes? And, what's with all the holes?

    That's perfect Dave. Thanks. BTW, what is that other bracket you have with the 2 fingers? I don't have that.

    I simply addressed the wrong guy. Whoops. :oops:
    Lee Bennett, that’s the bracket for the Stay Cable.

    If Mike was answering Lee, he is confused :D so let’s laugh at him.

    Is Mike’s lever to spring and bracket assembly the way it’s supposed to be for
    the brake pedal? I don’t recall seeing a return spring the last time I crawled under there.
