gear change with issues
 
I was in the middle of changing from the 3.55's to 4.10's. The previous owner used a spring pin instead of the bolt to hold the pin inside the carrier. So I need to figure out how to get it out of there. Any ideas?


Question 2. I've been getting mixed replys from people. I have 3.55's right now and can't get a straight answer. Will the stock carrier fit the 4.10's? Or will I need to replace those too? My diff. Is LSD too. If that matters.

Yes and no. The Dana 35 is 3.55 and up and the Dana 30 is 3.73 and up.

Pic of the problem?

He means a roll pin, that holds the cross shaft in the carrier.

I cut the tip off of an old screwdriver to push it out from the access hole on the side by the ring gear bolt heads.

So the 30 will be the problem child. OK. I'll try to source a 30 carrier. I'll more than likely just go open carrier. Poor people problems.

This pin is really in there. I tried an Allen wrench and hammer with no luck. I didn't hit very hard for fear of bending the end over the spring pin.

So you know - that roll pin is a standard piece for that carrier since its not threaded for a bolt.

Find a screwdriver that has a shank size pretty close to the size of the hole (on the ring gear bolt head side of the carrier) and cut the tip off. Stick it in there & beat on it, don't worry about the pin, it'll be fine.

The shop is incredibly busy, and I really have very little free time anymore. However, who wouldn't want to rip Jeeps apart & put 'em back together all day?

Nice!

It's amazing how many hack jobs are out there! I know you must see them all the time too. Tomorrow, I start cutting the skid plate off of a CJ-8 Scrambler. Yep, somebody welded it on.......
