WARN hubs Model M253

It is important not to touch the switch when it is dismounted! (risk of breakage)


First operations ... Since they are in good condition and are not found in new:

(*) can be found in New ... site WARN -> http://www.warn.com/index.shtml under reference 28751
But these are not the same and they do not fit with the chrome wheels ...

So they were degreased with gasoline ...



We grease again the inner part ...



There ... (DO NOT PUT A LOT OF GREASE: The inner mecanism would work)



And then two layers of special aluminium paint spray ...
You have the before / after (for remove the paint of the aluminum piece, I used a usual paint remover CAUTION however, do not put on the plastic because it tends to attack!



If you are a maniac like me ... You can add a layer of varnish ...

Is get the stickers 4x4 ... (home made too with aluminium background)



we have defatted the inside mechanisms and the original screw ...



We grease a little the spindle before installing ...



... the WARN inside mechanism ...



which is greased too generous ... (DO NOT GREASE A LOT: the inner mecanism would not work...)



... is installed c-clip on the axle ...



... Here ...



and finally installs the housing WARN ...


we set the 5 NEW bolts 8 grade (ref manufacturer 180125)...



...that are tightened to 41 Nm



Voila...



End of the episode...

See you monday... for the brake part of the DANA 30...

have a nice week-end...

Regards,

Gilles

Brake caliper!!

I've used the old one... since I'm not sure that the powder coated treatement resist at high temperature... I use a high temperature paint
instead (of course it's sandblasted (avoiding the machined part of course) before the 2 layers of this paint..)



For calipers brand new ...

You will need:

A caliper
Piston Kit- (constructor ref: 8133845) including:
A piston
An inner seal,
A dust shield


A new bleeder (ref: 3203313)

some tools too, you will need:
-lead Hammer
- a block with at least the diameter of the piston
- a rod of steel (the old spacer of the differential cage DANA 30's will do the hack: do not spoil!)



First, install the dust cap on the piston ...



voila ...



We do the same thing with the inner seal... but before installing the seal, we put brake fluid and nothing else to ensure a good sealing
in the groove of the caliper ...



then we set up brake fluid on the outer lip of the seal ...
With your hawk's eyes you notice that there is some rust outside the piston:
It's nothing serious and it's due to the old seal who are leaking...
and brake fluid is extremly corrosive

if you NEED to change the caliper : ref (8133846 passenger side and 8133847 driver side.

So I've removed the rust and...



We do the same thing (brake fluid) on the piston ...




it then inserted in the caliper...



we put the piston flat, insert the wedge and the rod as in the photo ... and we inserted the piston with some blow of mallets ...



That's it ...



It remains to well establish by hand the dust cap ...



and replace the drain valve ...



I'll let you do the other caliper... when finished, it looks like this:




Note: Brake fluid is highly corrosive to air, clean the joint out if you've stumbled upon otherwise the joint will crack and not be tight ...

End of the episode...

Tomorrow the FINAL post of DANA 30 : the brake brackets

BTW the final shims of the AMC 20 are done... so AMC 20 post will restart

Stay connected!

Regards,

Gilles

Are you building your own Jeep?

Thanks

My background... (sorry for my english again)...

Many many many years ago, when I was a child, I used to live in holiday to my uncle who owns a '43 MB Willys for his works in apple fields...

I've learned to drive with it ... And I really like it...

My uncle is gone... the MB too...

... 20 years later... my wife says she want a JEEP because her parents had one in the '80...

In my mind I was thinking about a MB but ....

1- It's priceless in FRANCE = $18000 at least !!!!! (and it's mainly very bad rebuilt...)
2- NO power steering : my wife want to drive it and she 's a little (weak) woman...

So we buy a CJ7 LAREDO Diesel ...

It becomes a DD for one year... and we LOVE it so much...

I give her a nickname: "Ma´tÚ" (it's the name of a well known (in France) old big fat lady who do amazing recipe )

So we started a FULL restoration of Ma´tÚ >>> HERE <<<

And one day, I hope have enough money/time to buy a MB... and I'll rebuild it...

But NOW, before everything, we (my wife and I. Yes!: she helps me a lot!!! ) have to FINISH this restoration

Regards,

Gilles

Last lap for the Dana 30

This time we will mount the brake calipers on the Dana 30

To do this ... you need ...

- a caliber brake (done before)
- a support bracket (powder coated) (not more fab)
- 2x springs caliber support (ref 3239865) (not pictured)
- a new regular brake pads (ref 83501167) (not pictured too)
- 2x mounting screws (ref 3239866)
- 2x plastic inner rings (ref 52001701)
- 2x plastic outer rings (ref 52001700)

All this, as usual ... by Caliper



So we fold the outer ring like that ...



we insert it in the hole caliper ...



With a screwdriver it is put back in place properly ...



and voila ...



Then inserted the inner rings ...



and mounting screws in it ... (wrench can fit more easily inside although there is no thread mallet might do the trick ... but Madame was in a hurry)



Here is the result ...



we find ourselves on the DANA 30 to install the support bracket with 2 screws that are tightened to 136 Nm (sorry no photo)
Warning: there is a sense ... anyway you can not mistake: it fit on ONE WAY



then we install the inner brake pad (there are foolproof)
with 2 springs pads...



and the outer brake pad is installed ...



Remains is to properly position the brackets and tighten the 2 screws ...



and tighten to 40Nm!



That's it! DANA 30 DONE!!!!

That's ALL folks!!!


Sincerely,

Gilles

For our american friends , you haven't translate the torque in ft/lbs

for you 40Nm = 29.50 ft/lbs
have a good day

Yep Pascounet71,

You're right!

I correct a mistake I made ​​about the DANA 30 ...

I forgot a few things ... my discharge the 239 MR ( Manual Renault ) and FSM '82 did not talk about this...

Only the TSM CJ 82 spoke :



Here is the first NUT...



tool angle tightening ( but it can be done easily without it )



and back off (I took 60 ░ ) :



thank you to my Italian friend from JF ( I forget the username...sorry ) who told me this error ...

it is important: because if NOT untight ... bearings will be screw up AND the spindle too!

Sorry about that...
Gilles
