Allright guys i have a serious problem i am trying to take apart my d27 front axel and i am stuck on the spindel. I bought a socket for the nut but there is something in fron of the spindel but that i cannot figure out how to get off. I found an article in JP Magazine but it isnt very detailed. This is the picture of what i am looking at can anyone help me.
i just did a disac brake conversion on my 27 after removing the locking hub therer was a washer behind it it just took to hooks and pulled it off check for a snap ring mine didn't have one but that doesn't mean anything
Yeah that's kinda what I was thinking where he was at. My dana 30 has the same washer you are talking about.. but I don't remember which order it was in. It's a washer that's bent out in a couple places. If it's what we're thinking.. you just need little hooks to get behind it and pull it out.
I used little dentist hooks like they clean your teeth with.

Some scout dana 44 fronts have a round looking spindle nut that looks like that. On the scouts there is a set screw holding the nut in place. I can't remember if it is on the face of the nut or up on an edge. So look for a set screw.
