Installing a locker- roll pin removal

Ok, this is probably a beginner question but what do you use to remove a roll pin from a differential cross shaft? A regular punch isn't long enough. This is on a dana 30 and 35. I was hoping my dana 35 would have a bolt but since it is pre-c-clip, it has a roll pin. Also a bit of trivia... my dana 35 has a pipe plug in the cover so they aren't all rubber plugs.

Sure it's a D35? Can't say I've seen them with a pipe plug.

I have a set of drift punches that are longer than average, they work, but I also have used an allen wrench.

Ya only go around once, best to enjoy it the first trip.

OK. Just didn't want to get part way into this and no be able to continue or go back easily. Anyone know if they can be removed with the carrier still in the housing?

knock the carrier out take the ring gear off !!!! i really don't think there is enough clearance for you to assemble the locker inside the houseing!!!!!!! plus this way you can inspect the carrier bearings!!!!!


Just a thought take it as you will !!!!!!!


Tim

Why is it that after you get stuck everyone helps you out then tries to make it though the same spot???

I made a drift out of a long allen wrench last night. It worked great for moving the roll pin. I did have to pull the bearing caps (and one axle) but didn't have to remove the carrier. I'll get around to the front another time. The lockright went together very easy.

I have 3.07 gears... the ring gear is plenty far out of the way. lol
