No welding the spiders for me. I wants a regular trac-lock for the streets. I understand the whole spooled/welded thing. I was just curious if the dana 44 scout track lock was the same or if there was another procedure because the spiders have some cracked teeth and need rebuilding

I loved my welded up crap-lok so much that when I built my Dana 60 rear, I put a full spool in it. Sure makes the Jeep track strait going down the road. It barks a little on tight corners but not too bad.

If you're talking about a DANA 44 of CJ, it looks like the same than a AMC 20 look at >>> HERE <<<

So same tip/hack

Depends on year. There were some changes, but I don't know exactly what changes or what years those changes came into effect.

Spline count on axles might be different for the side gears also...

Even though they used the same differentials from the same companies, they gave them different 'Marketing' names...
Mopar also used the name Trac-Lok; I had a Dodge Ram with 4.10:1 Trac-Lok Dana 80.

Dana Spicer was the manufacturer of the Trac-Lok and came up with the name, if anyone cares.

Checking runout...

The runout of the cage must be checked:
and must NOT exceed 0.002" !!! (0.05mm) Otherwise the backlash can't be set



Mine does not exceed 0.03mm (~+0.001")

Old post I know but I wanted to say thanks for making the picture tutorial. It convinced me I could do it myself and it was much simpler than I believed. One question though, originally I only had very little resistance with the old clutch packs (one hand could hold the axle shaft and my teenage son could turn the other). Now I need to use a crowbar on each end of the axle shaft but I can still get it to break free, How much resistance should I have?

You're Welcome!

This is quite normal ! (mine too was hard to turn but not with a crowbar )

By the way, do you have put some oil on each washer of the new clutch pack ?

Regards,

Gilles
