Rear Clank

I had my #2 rig out yesterday for a test drive around the block. It has a welded rear, Cjs, M/Ls and no shocks right now. I am getting a clanking sound from the rear that almost sounds like a bind. I was getting it when backing up then going forward. The welded rear? Also I think I put the drive shaft back in wrong in terms of phase. How is it supposed to be orientated? Thanks. Jim

Re: Rear Clank

chances are the clank is the 4 bolts that hold the brake drum to the axle. I believe daxe was the one who chanfered the brake drum hole to take a lug nut. since the bolts only provide clamping force. under heavy load they will alow the clearance of the bolt holes to move from one side to the other.

the jack shaft( drive line between the tranny and t case ) unless you took the driveline itself apart. it doesnt matter the alignment. the driveline between the t case and axles have a dimple. on the male end it is on the face. on the femail side I think it is on the side. just line them up and slide together.

Re: Rear Clank

Yes it could be the d-shaft. The joints are supposed to be inline. The joints on the flanges are supposed to line up with each other. I did that and it makes really funny sounds.

I haven't forgot about your merc arm...

Re: Rear Clank

In addition to the above mentioned items, it
Could be bad u-joint.
Could be bad pinion bearing.
Could be Yolk on pinion loose.
Could be back lash between pinion and ring gear.

Not I! A good idea, though. Wish I could take credit for it.
