There is about 800 10-60 second videos from last weekend at sicily on the local forum of his uploaded last night. I think they documented his whole saturday run.

Get anymore done on the doors, how hard was it to remove the material? Would the original material be able to be reused if it was OK. Reason I'm asking is that I just found set of these, in really good shape, locally for $150.

I did get some done yesterday Remko. I didn't take any pictures but I will try tomorrow. I am reusing the material I removed but will have to add some flat steel to mount the paddle handles. And I think I might try to overlap the welded joints on the round material with something to strengthen the joint since the doors will be slammed once finished.

Thanks and it really isn't anther rig.... You will see when the built starts.

On to today work/frustration.

Started with this. Notice I wrote on the pinion bolts with a paint pen because these have tone pit back in in the same holes.



With a little wiggling, it fell out. I thought it would be harder and had 3 pry bars ready.

Found out there was one tooth missing.





There is the seal



I put my 4' pipe down the passenger side axle tube and hit it with a 4 lb hammer and it popped out. Here is the old and new.



After trying to press the new one in thru the driver side tube using many different things as spacers, no luck. According to Stu's website, he used a 1.75" Dom tube chunk which he said fits the seal perfectly. I did not have any of that around. We pressed the seal in but every time it would get just a touch out of wrack and get a little sideways, so we would press it out from the passenger side and start over. Finally, I threw in the towel and I think the seal was destroyed anyways. So I will find another and hopefully some tube before I try again.

After a bunch more little stuff here and there, I decided to press the ball joints in so I could feel like I did something.

Upper



Lower



Does the gold piece in this picture get used. I have found mixed results from research but didn't remove one and can't even figure out where it goes so I am going to guess no.



This shows how much the ball joint come thru.





Passenger side. Both knuckles are just finger tight on the ball joints



If anyone has any suggestions about the seal, please let me know. And about the gold nut too. Thanks.

Gold nut was for Cherokees or something like that. I didn't use them on mine.

Are you pressing the seal from inside the pumpkin or thru the axle tubes??

Thru the axle tubes. I have a few different sizes bar I have been using to seat the passenger seal going thru the installed (and working) driver seal to hit a flat .5"x1"x2" steel then hit the old seal or one of the many ball joint parts from the kit or another space I found in the shop. The problem is all the use has damaged the edge inside the metal other ring (runner) from all the hitting. I think am going to try and find what Stu said and find that piece. By the way, I am using the same method he has a picture of on his website. I didn't take a picture.

Ah, you have the pipe thru the tube, but the actual seal from the pumpkin. I thought you meant you were trying to push the seal all the way down the tube. can you just tap it in with a hammer? I didn't replace my seal but when I had my axle taken apart to clean, I popped out the seals and put them back in by just tapping with a hammer.

Do you have any sockets that could fit the seal properly? Maybe a socket and long 1/2" extension?

Actually I never tried it with just a hammer because there is a second raised portion just inside the outer part which is what you need to hit to seat it. At least I thought that, because it was the seal bumper to bumper told me would fit. Turns out it is the wrong seal that they gave me. The outer portion of the seal is larger than the on I took out.

Turns out no one in town has these in stock and Oreillys can get one on Friday. I think 4wd has one but I will call them tomorrow and see what the dealer had too.

It might take a few extensions and a new socket since I don't have a socket that big.

Thanks. I thought the two bullet holes in the rear driver window was a nice touch too. I have wonder about the story on those for a while.
