Re: removeing carrier on Scout 44
I have the Factory Scout II manuals at home, so I'll look up the torque specs tonight. Seems to me it was pretty tight though. As to going back in, use a plastic or rubber hammer, make sure its not tweaked, and get it close. Then use the carrier bearing caps and bolts to snug it up, making sure to turn evenly so nothing is cockeyed. I also Locktighted mine to make sure eveything would stay in place. The Lockright install was easy, only takes about 10 minutes. The rear axle took about 1/2 hour start to finish. The front axle took 2 days, but I changed out U-joints, beer, parts store run for seals, bearing packing, more beer, install locker, torque down, beer, reassemble everything, beer, jump for joy! I did both axles when they were out of the vehicle, so it might take a little more time laying on your back.
