Re: amc 20 axle bearing trashed
In addition to what Caver Dave and Jaffer said:
1) If the RACES are shot in the ends of the tubes, I agree, get a new housing cause this one will never be the same.
2) if the bearings are fused to the shaft, you could also take it to a machine shop. They can put a bearing separator collar around it and press it off.
3) Where is your axle leaking? If it's from the cover, RTV and plento of it. If it's from the pig/tube intersections, get a new housing. If it's from the ends, make sure to clean tube ends and brake backing plates, replace inner/outer seals, and use a little RTV between the brake backing plate and the tube end.
'83 CJ-7 nothing original but the tub and axle tubes
