axle breakage update
Well as the guys from the bash know, i broke an axle this weekend. I didnt bring a spare so, i only got to wheel for about two hours. Well it was a good thing i didnt have a spare, and it was a better thing that i couldnt find a used one, cause it would have been a waste of money.
Not only did it break the axle, it blew the detroit apart. I dont think it hurt the detroit guts. But where the bearing is pressed onto is gone, the bearing is gone i mean gone, just needles laying in the housing, and the adjuster is actually twisted into a much smaller piece.
I will post the pics up tomorrow, it to late now to start a download on dial up.
So the game plan is, put my ring gear on a open carrier, put it back together for the summer, be able to drive it on the street and local two track trails.
After the baby is hear and things calm down a bit, i will start building the new and improved rear.
