Re: Woof! Those 14-bolt FF rear axles!

I cut close to 1 1/4" off the bottom of mine, made the big cut with a skillsaw with a metal & steel cutoff blade, then grinded the rest. Cut it right too the edge of the bolt hole but as you can see , there is alot of gasket surface remaining. Using a rock ring will keep the cover from peeling off. You'll need to cut the rock ring to match the housing, as I did.

Re: Woof! Those 14-bolt FF rear axles!

Yeah thats excactly what I was thinking of doing. Thats probably a little complicated for those southern hillbilly jarheads though.
That looks awsome Wayne, you sure do some nice work.
I didnt even go look at the one Im supposed to buy, The guy wasnt answering his phone up through 8:30, so I continued rebuilding and swapping the broken tranny.
I talked to him this afternoon, though, and he said, the guy who wanted disk brake version never called him, so Ill try to get out and and buy it on Monday.
Thanks for the info.

Re: Woof! Those 14-bolt FF rear axles!

jeff jeff jeff....obviously those square headlights have distored your sence of reality. You have forgotten that I am from Wisconsin and Jeepgod is from upstate, NY. And, next time you swap in an "NP435" make sure it isnt an ax-5 some hillbilly at the bone yard told you was a better tranny... everyone knows np435's are indestructable....
now... one other thing... funny you called me a hillybilly... this is a true statement. I AM from the hills... and it isnt a bad thing to be from the Kettle Moraine area of WI... but it perturbs me to be called a redneck....
Wayne.. you do make nice stuff!

Re: Woof! Those 14-bolt FF rear axles!

always grind the cover down more than the housing and never have a problem bending the cover on rocks. even if the cover is even the rocks can grab them. i had this happen with my old 60 rear end. i even had a thick cover from a front 60. i ground it down even and a rock pulled it back. after that i ground the cover down more so it wasn't at the bottom of the housing and never had that problem again. not with that 60 or my current 14bolt. grind the cover alittle more next time.....redneck!hehe!
