Yoke removal

I am trying to install my new CV shaft tonight. I need to change the yoke on the Dana 300. How the hell do you get the bolt off? [img]images/graemlins/givemebeer.gif[/img]

Put your vehicle in 4WD. Lock the hubs.Put vehicle in gear. Set parking brake, and [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]unbolt the nut holding the yoke!!

Re: Yoke removal

an impact wrench would do wonders, some imports have a part of the nut that you BEND into a retaining slot, I am not real fameliar with a D300 so that may or may not apply.

clean it really good, then wire brushthe entire thing nut head ANFD threads) then oil the threads, then you can see what your doing.

if its simply a nut and your having trouble holding it still AND you dont have an impact wrench, I have had luck wedging a wrench against something underneath the truck with it in gear, and tehn rocking teh truck back and forth a few inches, often that will break it loose.

Re: Yoke removal

I've seen this work for rear axles yokes - maybe it works for the transfer case yoke.
Take a long piece of flat metal. Drill holes in it that match the bolt pattern of the two of the old yokes ubolt straps. Be sure that the flat bar only covers one side of the yoke - you still need access to the nut inside the yoke. Bolt the bar to the old yoke using the ubolt straps. Let the bar rest against the floor and it will act a lever holding and keep the foke from spinning.

Re: Yoke removal

Boy you guys work hard to get a yoke off. If you dont have a impact gun, cause if you do you can just hold the yoke in your hand. But if you have to do it with a breaker bar or rachet. Get youself a big old pipe wrench. Put the pipe wrench over the yoke and let it hit the frame and then loosen the nut. Works every time.

Re: Yoke removal

I got it off. [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]

I just put it in 4WD, locked in the front, got a big long breaker bar, braced my feet on the frame, and pulled like hell.
