Saw a axle on CL says it is a dana 30 why no locking hubs. I have drums on mine and was looking for an axle with disc brakes would the parts on this axle work?

I have other pics but kinda hard to do stuff on my cell phone lol

They would have drive flanges. No locking hubs unless someone added them after the fact.

Ok well going to throw this on here to get opinions now I do know the 360 has more power but the 304 presented it's self so I have no problem rebuilding it and running it and going to guinea pig it a little with Shawn with the cam which I am looking forward to.

Anyhow to the point this question pertains to the 304 but it is an any engine question as it deals with cylinder measuring and what do I do with what I have.

I do not have a problem boring this but why if it is not needed why waste money.

Ok now the long part PS I tried putting the numbers apart but when I post it they are jumbled back up sorry.

Here are the measurements of each cylinder top mid and bottom mind you was attained with telescoping Ts and a vernier caliper digital also took 2 measurements 90 degrees apart so one vertical and horizontal

#1 T 3.765 3.765
M 3.751 3.758
B 3.752 3.752

#2 T 3.762 3.756
M 3.753 3.752
B 3.755 3.751

#3 T 3.756 3.758
M 3.753 3.753
B 3.752 3.750

#4 T 3.761 3.764
M 3.755 3.755
B 3.751 3.755

#5 T 3.765 3.756
M 3.754 3.755
B 3.757 3.755

#6 T 3.756 3.758
M 3.752 3.755
B 3.755 3.753

#7 T 3.765 3.759
M 3.757 3.755
B 3.756 3.757

#8 T 3.769 3.769
M 3.757 3.757
B 3.755 3.759

Sorry lots to look at but was a little work to get that but worth it just wondering what do you gurus see the least I can bore would be .020 or if I just honed to straighten then go back with stock or would the honing remove to much?

Also did not ridge ream this so that may have thrown it off but there was not much ridge at all by my finger feel anyway mostly carbon.

Still stuck on the boat but pistons at the house and need to pick up the stuff at the machine shop when I get home hopefully will start the rebuild and take plenty of pics and maybe a write up on a 304 build starting from fresh. So ready to get this Jeep moving again even if it just drives around the complex LOL

Well did a little work today have parts coming to do the front disc upgrade. So off with some parts and clean stuff up.
Passenger side



Drivers side



Spacer off next the drum



Oops looks like we have a leak no problem there will be a caliper there soon.



Hub with the lock ring you have to remove after you undo the 6 or 5 allen head screws on the cover that holds the switch depending on what year you have, remove the lock ring and the Locking hub should slide off



This is what you see next bend the washer back and well mine was finger tight.



After you take that one off there will be another right behind it unscrew it and well off comes the hub.



You should be able to pull the axle at this time so do it LOL you will see this nut which is the lower ball joint and it is an 1 1/8 loosen it almost all the way and it should look like this.



Did not get a pic of the Top nut on the ball joint but it is 1 5/16 nut now when you get a new ball joint it will come with the castle nut so I just loosened mine so the top was flush with the top of the threads and whacked it real good with a hammer and popped right off.

The once you remove the knuckle you will be left with this.



And this is a shot of the adjust split nut for the ball joint preload have to find that tool myself.



Anyhow there you are disassembly of the whole shebang next we will put it all back together. Stay tuned

Well dang unless someone has a source for shims for a 1976 Warn hub guess I am going to have to foot the money for new hubs the money pit continues LOL well cannot take it with you just delays putting them back on.

The Shim and found other pieces that are in the pic



And the bearings think these can be cleaned and put back in no problem there.



Warn says they do not carry parts as they discontinued them 30 years ago and they no longer use bearings there from what he said.
