So the ring amd pinion wemt out on my jeep because of water in the diff case from po I ordered a used ring and pinion and such and the new pinion was about an inch shorter when they switched to wode track axels did the pinion area change and what years could I look to get a used one ?
Nope, the center section of the M20 didn't change at all through the years. Sounds like someone sent you gears for the wrong axle.
'84 CJ-7: Yota axles (spartan locked front, e-locked rear) 4" BDS, 1" Daystar & 3/8" shackle lifts, 35" X-Terrains on steelies, YJ Tub & family roll bar, heater blower upgrade, 4.2L w/MC2100 & Team Rush, Warn 8274. Rebuilt 4.2/4.0 hybrid, AX15 and twin sticks/clocking ring waiting to go in.
The advertised position for a topless, dirty jeep girl has been filled......by my wife. Thanks to all that applied.
<------------and yes, that is her. :-D
The CJ, Scout and early Bronco Dana 30's are the long pinion std cut style. Most XJ and all YJ Dana 30s are short pinion and reverse cut. The last couple of years of XJ had the short pinion std cut front Dana 30 like a TJ wrangler.
well i got a long pinion off of ebay for 85 bucka got it looks great i go to get bearings and the inner looks like it will work havent pressed it on yet but the outer on the pnion is different on my new pinion compared to my old it is bigger quite a bit bigger
what did this pinion come out of so i can get the correct bearings and get this thing running
You can't just use a used pinion to replace the one you had. Ring and pinions absolutely have to be used as a set and kept together. They are lapped together as they are manufactured and if you use one pinion in place of another it will lead to a very short life for both the ring gear and the pinion.
You need a CJ Dana 30 ring and pinion set. They can be used but they must come together.
