When I was a kid I used to spend my summers at my father's in Fernandina Beach, FL. We would go down to Mayport and look across the river to the Saratoga at the Naval Station. I believe she was CV-60.

It's cool when you get to go ride around on a ship for temp tours.

CGC Rush. WHEC723. Homeported in honolulu HI, but because she was high endurance, we only spent 4-5 months out of the year there. And I was main prop, so there was a lot of... "overtime" at home. 3 alaska patrols, a south patrol, a japan patrol... a breakdown leaving canada that sent us to san fran for repairs. Saw most of the pacific, and man do i love her.
Winter in the bearing sea: i got so used to it there was a point i could NOT sleep unless the seas were minimum 20 feet.
I miss it, but my wife is still in, so i can live at least somewhat vicariously through her if need be.


Edit for everyone else: sorry we're getting so off topic in here, but us sailors have a hard time NOT talking about that life :-p

it's OK. Reminds me of the time me and the LT were at the LPOP waiting for the HHC NBC OIC to come by and drop if a prc77. We see the CO and OOD drive up in a 114, get out do the truffle shuffle and CM down the road.

Replacing the axles in the jeep. I had 4:11 gears with 33's but went to stock 28 wheels and then the gears were to much. Rather than doing ring and pinion, it was cheaper and easier for me to just replace the whole axles themselves. I say easier just because I've never done ring and pinions, but replacement ones cost more than 2 full used axles with 3:07's. I did the rear axle this past summer and loved the new gears. Now that winter is coming it was time to get off my butt and swap out the front. I pressed in new ball joints and replace some seals and now have the axle bolted to the leafs. The rest should go pretty quick, I'm just waiting on new hub bolts to come in, which should be here today. I surprised myself today. I lifted the axle off a work bench and put on the ground alone. My kid isnt around until 5 and I wanted to get this axle in. Not bad for a 143 pound 60 year old! lol Sure, tomorrow I may not be able to stand up straight ha.

Question on diff covers.

Picked up a new cover for my D30 swap. Right away it looked like it might be an issue with the drag link.

Laid it down next to an OEM cover, 1/2" further out then the OEM.
I am thinking this will interfere with the drag link?

Which cover is it?

Also, is it's furthest point of protrusion in the same plain as your drag link?

My last part showed up today to put my broken 44 back together. Motive gear warrantied the stub shaft and Yukon also covered the inner. I just had to buy a new spicer 5-760x U joint. Now I just have to find time to put it back together this week. The Bantam Trailfest is this weekend.

Here is my .02 cents on diff covers. This advice and $8.49 might by you a cup of coffee in todays economy.

A big part of a covers function is to control the fluid flow around the ring gear and make sure it slings it forward to the pinion bearings. That is why all those Dana covers have the outward dimple that rides so close to the ring gear stamped into them rather than just having a big round cover over them. You can look at a dana diff from the outside and know exactly where the ring gear is. That cover could have been much more simple to manufacture but it has its purpose in oil flow in a system that has no oil pump. (Dana is only one example) I do not remember who has the video but they use clear diff covers to prove how badly some aftermarket diff covers mess up your oiling.

Just food for thought. I understand the thought of armor and do not deny its importance but some diff covers are the cause of pinion and pinion bearing failures IMO.
