someone please help me here...

Ok I'm attempting to start pulling these axles apart (front D44 out of 1979 F150, and rear Ford 9"), I started of course with removing calipers, manual hub, spring etc thats in there, then I thought it would come down to the spindle nut and bearing, now something is in my way. Its came down to this thick sprocket deal that is securely wrapped around the splines, it will slide back and forth freely, but will stop when its about half way over the C clip groove on the end of the axle shaft. This is honestly the only thing stopping me in taking this axle apart, I hope someone knows just wtf Im talking about and can help because Im at a stop until it gets figured out...

Re: someone please help me here...

nope I was pretty much inclined to get pass the lock ring (that took like 3 seconds each side as oppossed to how much of a PITA everyone said they were), it turned out to be a burr in the shaft that wouldnt let the internal gear of the manual hub to slide off, being there's 3" diameter in that deep a$$ rotor I could necessarily pry it off, and my slide hammer was at the other shop..So I did some backyard down home riggin and made a "custom" slide hammer out of Vise grips a flat head screw driver and a hammer.

I will comment on tonights project tho, I was taking the rear 9" pig out and holy mother of moses that was a serious PITA! it didnt want to budge one bit and Im not exagerating when I say this joker was on there. If you looked around the bevel between the 3rd and the housing itself you couldnt see a line...almost seemed rusted on [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img] Anyways nothing my redneck expertise couldnt solve.

Oh and the front/rear gears came today, on monday the rear mini spool, front true trac, remaining bearings/ball joints warn hubs etc..basically the rest of everything needed to rebuild/regear these axles. I find myself wheeling the tires up to the durango often now and trying to figure what it will look like [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
