Hmmm

What happens when your plowing through mud and water and your front diff breather tube falls off?





You end up with dirty diff syndrome:

Re: Hmmm

Yeah, if Drivetrain Direct ever gets there heads out of there asses and gets me my gears for the rear it will match[img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]. It's Red Oxide primer, it's done so any loose pieces of metal from the casting process get sealed in the paint and don't get a chance to come loose and get into the bearings... It's done on performance engines to all the internal cast parts, except the cylinder walls for the same reason...

Re: Hmmm

I thought it was because you were planning on getting the clear gears or what ever they are called so you can show off your fancy painted internals [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

So how come you havent posted pick of the truck covered in slime? It must be at least a wee bit dirty if you had all that crap in your diff, or couldnt you splash mudd that high [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: Hmmm

Hmm, don't think so. I just got rustoleum red oxide. It's what my engine techer recomends for the engines so I figured it work on the axle too.
