Another question. This time locker

I just bought this locker second hand ARB. Dana 35.
But while i was handling it (without care) i broke the small copper line.
A friend told me if i weld it maybe ill damage the diaphragm.
What is the best solution to fix it?

That is a pressure sleeve. You need a new one. Easy enough to replace while you have it out. Any ARB dealer can get you one.

The thing about those sleeves are...
Some are inside the bearing and some are outside the bearing. the inside ones require one to press remove and press the bearing back on. An Auto shop function mostly.

Looks like yours is outside, lucky you.

It looks like this.

Is very hard to get parts here in Mexico, also very very expensive. Ill check if my friend can weld it with few heat for dont damage it more. And if i get the piece it will cost me to much and takes 2 months to get here. >.<

it can probably be brazed in if you can get it fully apart.

Make sure you pull the seals out first!
Soldering will work.

I wouldn't be surprised if it has other issues.

EG: What's all those grinding marks all about?

My guess would be that whatever gear set it was used with before tried chewing the body of the ARB up.

Dillard, do you think that the chew in the locker case is a big problem?

I can't say with any degree of certainty.

However, something fairly catastrophic occurred which caused somebody to grind the body down. My guess is that the pinion gear either walked out (actually in) enough or was bent & deflected enough to cause serious teeth gouging to the ARB.

There are a number of things that can cause or contribute to this.

Personally, I wouldn't run it - even if it were free due to a long laundry list of reasons.

I would see if I could tap the hole with FNPT threads and put an adapter on if you can get it to all fit inside the housing.

I'd order the new bearing seal. I hate "fixing" something and putting it all back together for it to not be "fixed".

That's a good point.

Also, Joe Dillard makes a good point... But in response to his comment, I would say keep it in mind but proceed. This may be your chance to rid yourself of your D35 anyway. Repair and install the locker and give it a go. If everything instantly explodes, install Ford 8.8 and be done with it.
