Re: What To Weld??

When i had my rear difff welded, they welded the spider gears togeather, the spiders to the pins, the pins to the housing, and everything else that could be welded, except for the side gears. For maximum strength you could weld the side gears to the carrier, but you wont need it if welded properly. He also went behind and welded the gears from behind in the openings (on the side of the carrier which you cant take the plate off). I havent broke it yet and probably never will.

Re: What To Weld??

Okay, I offered this article in the past but it is too big to email to everyone so I am posting it on the internet and you can download it directly to your computer. Give me a few minutes and I will give you the link.

Re: What To Weld??

I made the files smaller. They were way too big and that is why it took so long to upload. Try them now, they are all less than 200K now.

Here is the link again: http://users.erols.com/zoomy/Lincoln Locker/

Re: What To Weld??

Dont weld your diff. No matter who tells you its good. If you drive your Sami on the street even a little, forget about it. The guy who put up the article on how to do it skipped over the huge CAUTION sticker that warns you about this. I had a welded diff and ruined bearings in the third member twice. Sure, welded diffs are strong, they will most likely NEVER break. But something else will. If you plan to pay someone to do it for you, just pocket the money and save it for a locker you can do yourself.
