CAD related question

So, I did this modification (http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/t...x-4wd-2989689/), but did find that the intermediate axle shaft had quite a bit of horizontal play in, causing the sleeve to not always fully engage. Is this movement normal?


Thanks
Tony

How much is "quite a bit"? Mine has some play in it also but it has never been enough to not fully engage a decent length on the splines

I'd say between 3/8 and 1/2". First I did the mod mentioned above, but found the shaft would move enough in the direction of the diff that you could hear the grinding of teeth in the CAD, just slipping as it was not fully engaged. I took the CAD cover, flipped it around, and now the collar (seems to) stay engaged. The inner shaft does not have a c-clip on the diff side.

This is what mine has looked like for the last 3 years with no real issues:

I have a little bit of a leak, but it's not negligible.

Thank you. I did actually see this vid earlier during my research. Maybe I explained it wrong. I was referring to the left <> right movement, pushing pulling to and from the diff. The bearing is fine.

Ah, sorry. You did in fact say horizontal. I just didn't read well, ha ha.

Nice to see my videos get seen by more than just myself, ha ha.

Horizontal play, eh?

My first thought was that perhaps it wasn't seated correctly, but that would put too *little* clearance.

Have you confirmed that it is not engaging? Or is it possible that the grinding could be from trying to disengage?

Yes, the shaft between the CAD and diff is the intermediate axle shaft. The one you showed in your youtube video.
