Here we go I've stepped way out of my comfort zone and will be running out of it soon
My son and I pulled the rear end out yesterday evening
And boy am I glad we did I had no Idea just how much wrong was going on
All the rubbers were worse for wear for sure from the rear axle to the torque tube support
I'm surprised the u joint hadn't fell apart already all the nuts weren't but barely finger tight and the u bolts I could shake around by hand
Who ever worked on it before never bent the tabs over to lock in the nuts
I figure we will work the rear end build and when ready to go in we will start on the transmission pull ( so we don't have to much apart at once and it becomes an over whelming scenario)
I have to say we were both shocked at how small the drive shaft/propeller actually is.
I hope us pulling the drive shaft out of the trans isn't a problem when it's time to put it back in
I assume the thrust spring will stay in position when we push the shaft back in?
any hoo I'm excited to be tackling this stuff all though a bit timid I feel pretty good.
