Re: More AMC 20 Question
Also, My bro says this flange is/was brand new about 1+ year ago. He says that it was smooth and the splines(in the flange) were cut when he torqued the axle nut down. Is this right or has he put the wrong flange in? (I personally don't like m20 and don't know anything about wrenching on them)
He said this swap was done in Jan. when the temp was 20* outside. Is it possible the axle "shrank" from the cold, the splines were cut on a warm flange, and created the mother of all press fits? We lost access to the press this weekend, but will try more oil & BAP (big a$$ puller) over night to see if this helps.
I mentioned the one piece axles, but he doesn't understand what they'll do for him, other than make the 2 parts 1. Any info & experiences I can pass on to him?
