I\'ve bought the locker!

Evening to all... I've finally gone and bought the locker this afternoon from north coast offroad. Nice guy on the phone.. Would anyone be interested in a video of how to install the locker? Price would be like 10 bux shipped? Just curious..... Any suggestions or tips and tricks to installing this locker? While I'm there, I'll also do the sj410 brake backing plate mod (the one where you can take the rear axles out without removing the brake back plate {where the hydraulic brake cylinder is bolted to}).

got zook? I do, 88.5!

Re: I\'ve bought the locker!

I personally don't need a video on installing a locker, but that may be a good idea - some people might love that. I have a Lock-Right installed in my rear axle and have also removed my axles numerous times for wheel bearing replacement, etc. If you want some tips on putting in that locker, go to www.arizona4x4.com and look in the "Tech" section. I have detailed several things that would have made my install easier. Regarding that mod where you can remove the axles without removing that backing plate, why is this a good mod? Don't get me wrong, I just don't think the axles have to be removed often enough to warrant this. I can remove both rear axles in under 10 minutes as it is. Besides, I won't need to do so until it's time to replace the bearings again - I'm hoping that won't be for a few years yet.

Re: I\'ve bought the locker!

Hopefully this won't sound like a wise-crack....

But if you're asking for tips for your first locker install, you might not be the best authority for producing an install video. That's not to say its not a good idea. But making sure the backlash and preload are correctly set can make or break the install. Do a few to get the hang of it, and then become the video wiz....

Main thing is to mark everythng well when taking it apart. Though you will still have to set yor preload and backlash which can differ from original factory settings after the install. Don't forget locktight for the ring gear bolts.

Re: I\'ve bought the locker!

The title of the video is how NOT to install a lockrite locker! hahahahhaah, wait, that's my locker, DOH! hehahahhehe. I see your point.... The main intention of the video would be to have a visual idea of what happens. Right now I do not have any differential experience. I know how it works, but a few things I am uncertian of. The video would provide a sorta like visual and audiauble walkthrough of a locker install. Do this first, this is what the 3rd member looks like, make sure to mark this here, nononon not there!, check this check that.... etc.... I dunno.... I'll still tape it for my records, when something goes wrong, I can show the video to someone that has done lots of locker installs and they probably can point out what I did wrong heheheh..

I forgot to mention it is a lockrite 1510.
