I'm not familar with the AMC 20, but that is how the D44 looks. Otherwise you would have to take the backing off and put it on the axle before you press the bearings on. On the 44 the axle plate that's put on before the bearings is what holds the axle in.

Or am I totaly not seeing it correctly?

That's what has to be done on a 20....dust shield, outer seal an backing plate all have to go on the axle before the bearing is pressed on. The backing plate is what holds the axle in place.

I'd be pissed! Words of advice for said "mechanic". If you don't know how something works, read the directions or don't jack with it!

My mechanic said he would pay for the parts to fix it and make it right. He said when he widened the backing plate he was thinking of a ford 9" axle. People screw up. I judge people by what they do when they screw up. If he makes this right I'll sing his praises!

Well done muscle. It takes a man of considerable character to give another man a second chance in something that could have killed him or someone else.

"Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race." Supposedly President Coolidge

I agree musclenut... if he make it right, admits he messed up, I'd be OK with that. No one's perfect... heck, even I have screwed up a time or two.

BESTEST movie evah. Not just about speed and motorcycles. A must for anybody that turns wrenches, even just a little. Plus, old Sir Anthony gets teh layed more than Peter Fonda in Easyrider!

I've also learned that sometimes... when people don't agree with you .... its best to hold them down and kidney punch them till they agree with you

I went over to the fellas shop that worked on my jeep. We pressed my new bearings and backing plates on and he paid me for the parts. After working with him I beleive he is good at what he does but he had a major brain fart on my jeep. He said he was thinking of a dana 44 axle when he opened up my backing plates. Anybody need a set of opened up backing plates?

The log works on the front as well. A guy with us last weekend broke the steering knuckle and his wheel fell of his Toyota truggy.

Good on you sir. Your mechanic can't ask for more that that... You are acting like a man when you admit your mistake and make it right. God bless.

That retainer on the axle shaft is what holds the axle in. The backing plate does not do that. At least that is how it works on a Dana 44. I guess I'm like your mechanic.
