More clean up of the axle today..

Ground down the little lip on the bottom of the diff



Then went on to take off the yoke flange. Its just 4 12mm bolts that hold it on.





At this point I decided to replace the pinion seal since it was right there

Used a screw driver to hold the flange in place to I could take off the pinion nut.



I was honestly preparing to go to war on that thing but it took almost no effort to get off. Interesting...

With the pinion nut off, I just pounded the yoke off the splines



Then pried the old seal out with a screwdriver



Popped the new one in



Then bolted everything back up and torqued the nut to 100 ft lbs. Does that seem ok? I heard a few different things about the spec for just replacing the seal. Any input is appreciated.




On to the next project; separating the U-joint from the yoke and driveshaft



I was feeling lazy and didn't have my ball joint press, so I just cut the driveshaft ear



A few minutes later and vuala




That's about all I can do until the perches and things come in.
Hopefully soon!

Btw any feedback on that torque spec would be great!

Looks good! What diff cover is that? And are you getting the ford stock flange yoke or a conversion?

Sheesh, that'd be crazy tall. Wonder what my DS angle and CG would work out to be...

It's a Ruffstuff (Dan and crew took care of me), and I'm keeping the ford flange (yoke arrives today!). Unfortunately, I'm laid up after some minor surgery so I can't do anything today.

That's a beefy cover. What did you do for a DS if you're using the ford flange?
