Yeah, and thanks
There's surface rust on them though, is that something that happened while at your place or are those fingerprints of mine that oxidized in transit?

On that Napa cable there isnt much you can do to weather proof it. i used a rubber cap over the fitting that i threaded into the block. I saw a better cable on mcmaster carr for 10 bucks more but i had the Napa cable already.

Nope, haven't had tacos in quite a while.
Interesting though, it looks like fingerprints from the pictures. I think I'm going to have to start oiling them as I pack them.
Thanks for inadvertantly bringing that to my attention.

Aurorajeep , ilove the posilock write up.thanks . do you get any water in through the cable sheath? you can silicone the cable entrance but the rest of the cable isn't weather proof. and my tires are going to be 33" like i have on it now but with an aggressive tread.

well i did the honey do list and got back to the jeep. I cleaned the 44 and made a brass punch out of an old king pin that i braised the end and ground down. I installed the pinion races with the correct shims under the big race.My old pinion was a +3 and the new was a 0, so i subtracted .003 from the existing shim pack.If the old pinion was -3 and the new +2 then i would add .005, you want it to add to 0.That was the easy part, to set the pinion preload took forever!!!!!!!I measured the old preload shims and tried that. NO go ,it was to loose. THEN i pulled it apart and took off .005,now to tight! i went back and forth 6 times before i got it.I think i didn't get the races seated all the way at first.,and it threw my calcs out.you got to have everything completely clean or a spec of dirt can mess up your readings.By the way do this without the seal installed ,then when u know u got it pull of the yoke and install the seal. You should have 5 to 10 inch pounds of tork. tomorrow the carrier bearings.

Ok ,i got a couple hours of sleep and going to sneek out to the garage befor the boss gets up.I noticed that the small shims that go behind the front pinion bearing got chewed up. they had the thinest shim against the shaft and its not a very big surface area there. i think that its better to put the thickest shim there to prevent it from being squeezed out. BY THE WAY IM NOT BY ANY MEANS AN EXPERT ON ANYTHING , U GUYS PLEASE CHECK OUT ALL THE ADVICE I GIVE. I HAVE ONLY INVENTED OR STOLE IDEAS FROM YOU GUYS. (NO FORMAL TRAINING)ill try to do anything, mainly because im to cheep to pay someone.
