Swaping Flanges....??

I need to swap flanges on 2 (large to small) pigs. It's just a remove and swap operation, right?

Re: Swaping Flanges....??

Remove and swap? Not really. The trick is getting the same preload on the pinion bearings. That preload also affects the depth at which the teeth cut on both the ring and pinion. Best way to do them is get a new crush collar, or "straighten" yours in a vise, then use it to reload the bearing. Otherwise, the bearing will run loose, and the gears will try to eat themselves...

Crow,
I think changing the flanges on the driveshaft end would be better... that is as easy as replacing a ujoint if you have the other size flanges.

Re: Swaping Flanges....??

i used the same method as described by brown29 and i can vouch that it is really a simple task. undo the u-joint and remove old driveshaft flange, and install new d-shaft flange with the u-joint. no preload or any other crap to deal with. jerry

Why don't you just redrill the large flange, to the small flange bolt pattern. If I understand correctly you have the large flange and need the small flange. The pilot on the D-shaft flange is the same large or small, so all you have to do is clamp the small d-shaft to the large differential flange and redrill it with a 5/16" drill bit. I did this with a spare T-case and everything lines up fine.

Re: Swaping Flanges....??

I have all my flanges drilled to accept both the large and small DS. This way I can use either size DS if mine breaks on the trail and I need to replace it (especially if I need to borrow one).

Re: Swaping Flanges....??

Thanks guys! It's a moot point now as pug has the small flanges. We're going to be swapping diffs and I thought he had the large flanges......

Pug,I found another set of spare axles that are ready to have the bearings pressed on so I'll start to remove the bearings and retainers from the set in my LR. I love it when a plan comes together......
