The actual money I will be making will be coming who knows when, later. . . which is what I'm using to get the brake kits from Napa.

Otherwise I just have gas money right now, which when coupled with the fact Carla gets in on the 15th (Thursday)... ...means No Anza for Me.
Carla?? Pics or ban.

How much could I get for them?

Edit: Due to circumstances in my friend's dad's naval career looks like come March we are moving to Maine. damn it now Im going to have to worry about my floor corroding away. But seriously that makes me really sad, I've lived my whole life here thus far that I can remember (when i was a baby i lived in Africa and Spain).
Maine? whisky, tango, foxtrot. Portmouth shipyard? I though they were closing that?

I'm guessing that is where it is, my friend's mom was sorta hasty about it because she was rushing out to the store and I came up stairs and fell asleep. Must not be closing it too soon, its one of the requirements for my friend's dad to be able to pass CPO rank, that we move.


I don't have a good picture laying around, there are a couple but they don't do her justice so ...

I got my D35 spiders there, Jeff told me about it, super nice people. Not much parking, its on the north side of the road west of Mercury street. Really Small and Easy to miss.
how was the pricing there?

Hey jason so i'm probably working on saturday sounded like more then a definite so i'm thinking that maybe tonight we could swing down there and get that axle. not sure what time is best for you or them let me know wouldn't mine tearing it down tonight just to make sure i won't need anything else... plus i wouldn't mine getting the code off the housing just to make sure i give the shop the right info. and maybe we can do that swap on saturday before i head up to my parents if i can get the bearings in time.


Edit: Well after further review there's a couple of things that i'm going to have to do anyways before i mount it up. Apparently the biggest concern about these danna 44a is that the housing is so thin and prone to the actual housing to flex and bend which wears out the bearings. Since this axle needs bearings I'll need to make sure it's not bent and that the bearings were worn out because of wear and tear and not the flexing of the housing. once that is figured out looks like i'll have to reinforce the housing with some trussels. Now the question is jeff.... do you have the correct equipment to weld an aluminum housing or will i have to take it to a shop? if i want this axle to last it's going to have to be welded up first, before i slap it on, minus well no point in taking it on and off a couple of times. Thanks locked98gc for the link great info there!

I do not have aluminum welding ability. Need a MIG for that and a lot of skill, tends to be pricy.

yeah i figured it would be but it sounds like a must apparently it's common that the flexing causes the bearings to wear out premature and can cause damage. I know another person that does have a mig let me talk to him see what i can work up. maybe i could borrow it from him... you think you have the skill if i can get the mig?

Wow! TGIF!

Anyone know how much it is to mount and balance tires on base at the hobby shop?

I have not welded aluminum in over 20 years so I would not really want to practice on your axle.

So i'm a little confused on the Dana 44a is the axle shaft housing also aluminum or only the differential area? the reason i ask is i've been looking at the trussels being built for the axles and they seem to be usuing just regular steel not aluminum but they aren't welding the pumpkin part only welding the shaft housing area and then putting a steel bar across the top to strengthen it and use it as a skid. is this right? or is the entire axle aluminum?

TGIF is right

Have not heard back from Steve re: metal shopping; I sent him a text msg yesterday. Can't speak for his budget but he needs to replace his rear crosspiece not matter what it costs, or quit carrying a spare tire.

Maybe I can run to national city a lunchtime today or go out to el cajon in the morning.

IIRC it is only the pumpkin that is aluminum but don't quote me on that.

To my knowledge only the pumpkin is aluminum. We could probably make one but that is not something to be rushed into with out designs and plans and research. I have no idea what one costs to buy
