removeing carrier on Scout 44

Is there anything special that I should know about this?
I have installed a lock-right on a few Toys, but this is my first Dana 44

Any help would be great

Re: removeing carrier on Scout 44

Hi Charlie...so you got a 44.. Ideally you would use a case spreader, but you can remove it without one. Use a large pry bar and gently pry it out. It is a tight fit..and it will sort of pop out, so make sure it doesn't fall on the floor or you.

Unbolt everything and make sure you keep the caps on the right sides.

Pry on the carrier, very gently and uniformly, until the carrier pops out. It shouldn't take too much, I did both of mine without any problems and in very little time. Good luck.

How about the install?
Is getting that baby in going to be a bitch?
Or will a lil "persuasion" do the trick

also, what is the torque on the ring gear bolts, and cap bolts

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.

Re: removeing carrier on Scout 44

Sorry I took so long. Here are the specs, they're from the factory IHC Truck Service manual, #CTS-2565P and #CTS-2565R.

The front axle:
Bearing caps: torque to 35-50 ft lbs
Ring gear bolts: torque to 45-50 ft lbs

The rear axle:
bearing caps: torque to 70-90 ft lbs
Ring gear bolts: torque to 45-65 ft lbs

To me this doesn't make sense and I hope I haven't screwed anything up. I did the rear axle first, and torqued everything to the required specs, maybe a little on the higher side. I assumed the front axle would be the same, so I torqued the front to the rear specs. I don't know why there would be two different specs for the front and rear. Anyone have any ideas? Did I do a BAD thing? Should I tear it all apart and retorque them?
