OK- off my soap box....
|This is in the rear end- fine for going straight, but for steering in the front its |
generally regarded as horrible.
|Thats why I got this- an Aussie locker- made in the USA|
|Here- the ring gear was removed already- the cross (drive) pin has a rolled pin that keeps it in place. I found the proper sized drill bit and a nylon dead blow and tapped it out. The pin came out pretty easily.|
|To get out the spider gears rotate the gears and remove the smaller ones. They have a curved thrust washer under|
each gear that needs to be removed also. One washer came out stuck to the gear- one stayed.
|Note the side rib reinforecment the scout carrier has... BEEFY! Compare this|
to the pics on the early bronco site of that carrier below.
|This is the carrier off the early bronco|
site showing the crack he has
in the carrier, no rib reinforcement...
|The cross pin went in easily, the roll pin was a bit of a pain, but went in. |
Re install ring gear & torque bolts.
Put carrier back into pumkin, torque carrier bearing bolts to spec
Put axles back in, reinstall and grease spindles, brakes, locking hubs
Put on tires and do the final Aussie locker test.
I put on a THICK differential cover to protect my investment (2X as thick as stock)
Fill with gear oil
Enjoy having an actual 4WD!
