Bill, as always you are the man! The 3.54's in my a MC 20 is still good, but what I do need are the three dots 54s from the Dana 30 and the carrier; my carrier got chewed up pretty good when the previous owner busted the axle. DM me and let me know how much IOU. Thanks again buddy.

Picture of the Dana 30 gears. I'm going to send the carrier with the bearings intact, a wire thru the center to hold the races in the proper place. If you like I'll send the races with the pinion as well, you can be the Judge if you want to use them, (I see no reason not to) Especially in the front axle.

The shims that are installed , will be a good starting point. Or it could be a bolt in.
So let me know if you would like the piņon bearings and races.
Bill

Yeah please send me all the guts definitely. I would have responded to you earlier but the Air Force has blocked the JeepForum from allowing me to login. Bill, once again I appreciate everything you have done for me.

Reference picture. The shims go between the housing and race closest to the head of the pinion .

I just realized that I might very well have a rolling chassis by summer!

Thank you so much, Bill.

Holy crap, it's been a bit over a month and I've done nada on the CJ. One reason is because we have been getting some much needed rain. With the rain, I've found that some of the welding on my frame patch is rusting, thanks to bubbles in the welds.....apparently not enough gas when welding or dirty metal, so now I get to grind, smooth and paint again.

Bill has been the supplier of my habit; I just got the 3.54 gears for my Dana 30 and all I can say is that these gears were either never used or they were replaced, because they are mint. I'm going to make a trip to Vato Zone tomorrow, get a bunch of degreaser/cleaner and load the Dana in the truck and take it to the car wash.....it's been sitting in the RV garage for too long and has dirt, grime and spider webs all over it.

At the same time, a friend of mine gave me his old 1985 Kawasaki KLT160 for free, so I'm working on getting that running again. The 1982 Honda 185S is a blast, and I've been riding the hell out of it, but boy is it a real kidney buster! Zero suspension on this 40 year old body doesn't feel so great.

As soon as I get the Dana cleaned and assembled, I'll post pics. I'm going to try and throw everything together, put some paint on the ring gear and see how close I am. I'm going to need some expert opinions, because I've never done an axle before.

See y'all in a few days.

Gear marking compound, it's basically a thick yellow grease.
I doubt you'll find it at a auto parts store. The compound can be had at a dealership, or what 15 minutes of google produced. Yellow ocre from a hobby store, for oil based paints/painting pictures. The first gear setup I did is still working well after 75,000 miles. I didn't even clean it off the last time. 2 oz. would be more than enough. The only other thing needed is a beam type torque wrench, a dial indicator with a magnetic base, and dead blow hammer.
This is if the bearings don't need to be removed. In which case, and press and bearing separator will be required.
1 other thing, Patience!!
Bill

^^^^this^^^^

I have 20,000 on my first gear setup and going strong. It's fun! If you want some cliff notes, I rebuilt my 30 in my build thread, it's maybe 20 pages in or somewhere close to that.

Well guys, another month has gone by. I received the gears that Bill sent me, and two weeks ago Mikey and I took the Dana 30 to the car wash, degreased it and rinsed it off. When I got it home, I installed all of the components and quickly realized that, even with the Dana Service Manual, there are some lanes that I should just avoid, this being one of them; I'll take it to a shop and have them set it up properly.

With every cloud, though, there is a silver lining. I was on eBay and found something that I had been searching for for quite a long time. The PO, IMO, committed the ultimate faux pas and hacked the dash, in order to install an aftermarket radio. Last weekend I found the holy grail, an uncut 1976-only dash that is great shape....$100 shipped from NY.

Here's the pics.

That dash is beautiful!!! I hope to find an uncut OEM Laredo (Tach and clock) dash for my '85.. I have two early Laredo dashes in my garage from '80-'81 but they changed slightly when the intermittent wipers were added in I believe 1983 or 84. The ends are no longer folded over and the wiper switch hole is clocked differently when the switches were updated.

Would you have a pic of the wiper switch hole your referring to on the 80-81? I picked up a dash for my 78 that doesn't have the folded ends but I was not aware of the wiper switch hole change. Will the old style switch not work with the newer dash?

Thanks
