Clay's Jeep is loaded up early to have it at the shop by 7:30. I wanted to catch the guy when he opened. Warren (the owner/mechanic) is a great guy, and he has done our mechanicing for about 5 years now. He was actually pleased to have the Jeep in his shop. He pulled the pinion yoke off and asked me to bring him the factory 20 yoke. I had swapped a D44 yoke onto it for the benefit of u-bolts vs. straps. So I ran it up there, but it was late, so I'll hear something tomorrow. I'm hoping beyond hope that there is some kind of subtle difference between an AMC 20 and D44 yoke, but I can't see it. I have been told they are completely interchangeable. If the 20 yoke doesn't remedy the rearend problem then Warren will have to go into the R&P... which will humiliate me and bottom out my wallet. So keep your fingers crossed!

Jeep loaded up on a borrowed trailer.

Squaw going with me to town, and she is carrying LOU'S JAR OF SALSA!! YAAAY!!!

Where I am sleeping tonight!

And I have always wanted my very own grill in the rearview shot. Except mine is covered in the morning dew.

But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!

I have Good News... I think!

My Mechanic just called and told me that I never crushed my crush sleeve. Wow! Backlash was good. My gear pattern is okay. Bearings are good. Just never crushed it, even with my G.I. Joe Kung Fu grip! Can you believe that? Mechanic says he likes to start the crush on a press and crush it maybe 10-12,000ths. The Wise and Knowing Jeepers have spoken! Bill, Paul... as usual, you were right. I feel like a real wuss.

Verifyiing that a D44 yoke DOES fit on an AMC 20! So if you want U-bolts instead of straps this is a good swap.

Don't feel too bad. I had a crush sleeve for a Chrysler 9.25" that my 660 ft lb impact gun couldn't crush! It was some doorman piece of junk. I replaced it with a good one and it worked great. I later tried to squish it in my 12 ton press and it still wouldn't budge!

Maybe you should start eating your Wheaties in the morning more often Scott. I got jacked up lungs and high BP and I crushed mine. Glad it was something simple in the end!!! If you ever do it again it has a distinct feel when it rolls over and starts to crush.
