Dana 35 Questions
I have some questions about my recently destroyed Dana 35.
OK, Long story short. Rear locks up at 40 mph, ring, pinion, and spiders destroyed. After disassembling the whole thing I find out that the surface of the carrier to which the ring gear bolts to has a runout of about .009 inches. The carrier has a couple of scrapes and small dents. Is the runout to much to still be usable? When the new ring gear is bolted to the carrier will that pull some of the runout out of the carrier? Am I just being overly cautious? Are there any tips or tricks I should know about when installing gears and a Lock-Right in my Dana 35. Any help will be appreciated
