Re: detroit locker and 10bolt
thanks for the input there captain mascot [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img], i have come to realize this. but now I'm in a position whre i need to get it fixed before a day or two so i can get to work...that puts me in a position to get something i know is right.....right now.
anyways, i have determined that the shaft is broken. i couldnt get the other piece of the shaft out though. so i had to remove the pass side axle and then remove the carrier assembly. and yes i remember which side the shims go on [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]. i took the assembly to the driveline shop and it will be magnafluxed tomorrow morning to check for cracks. they also havea press there to remove the axle piece....so i should be good to go tomorrow. the guy even offered to let me borrow all the tools to set the ring and bearings back in place. he said if i couldnt get it back in withing a few hours that i should give him a call and he'll take a lunch break and come set it up for me. hows that for some customer service...i love it. anyways, thats what we're looking at. and now i have all the components to make my "man's lamp" out of haxles and gears.
pfunk, sorry i didnt get a hold of you thi afternoon. i was rushing around to gett he parts and other "what-not's" I'd need to get this done in my driveway when my other parts are available. i figure this'll get my truck rolling before i need to be in to work. heading to the heights for a parts truck and then swapping would have a taken a bit longer to do properly.
I'm keeping that truck in mind though for all my friends...and of course for myself as well
