Lincon locker

I "Instaled" a licon locker on my truck this week.

I filled two other theeth of both sidegear. The planetari fit just a bit loose on the unfilled theet.

That way I'll be able to take the diff apart if something break or if I want to upgrade with a locker.

Re: Lincon locker

I welded my side gears to the carrier --Took the spiders out, and bolted it back together.
Been running like that for two years now.--No breakage while running 33" Boggers.

Re: Lincon locker

I just got in there and welded the snot out of mine. Welded the spiders to each other, the case and the cross pin. I dont care about ever taking it apart. If it breaks, the whole thing will be pulled and tossed.

I also kinda adopted this attitude because I have a toy rear axle sitting behind the house right now waiting for the mod time to put it in. Not a whole lot of care about the zuki rear so long as it survives the rest of this season.

Re: Lincon locker

I was not sure how much back-lash there would be by welding the pairs so I welded the side gear to the end plate. Just one side.
First weld up as in picture failed.
I put too little weld in, was worried about filling all the weld spill off of the side plate.
Second time a put loads weld down and got a mate skim the end plate in his lathe. Thanks shawn....

Re: Lincon locker

I also have a pair of toy waiting [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

I wanted to test thelincon locker before doing it in my toy diff. And as I said I wanted something that I could re-use the housing if I wanted to put a locker..

I'm looking forward to test my "new" locker next weekend with DannyL [img]images/graemlins/burnout.gif[/img]
