Gear Swap....Help Needed
Well, after mentioning that I need to swap out the gears in my front diff, Wildturkee graciously offered to give me a hand, as I would have no idea what I'm doing. It seems that we will have all of the tools we need except for one thing.
I was wondering if anybody happened to have a press/puller for the pinion and carrier bearing. Also, my cousin is a diesel mechanic, and may have the right parts, if only I could tell him what kind. What EXACTLY do I need?
Also, if anybody else would like to help out, that would be great too. With enough people, (and another set of jackstands) I may be able to get the new rear axle in at the same time. Sorry, I can't buy beers for anybody, but I can provide a pretty good meal at least.
I'm not quite sure when I can do this... It needs to be a weekend....but I'm in no hurry. Ideally, we could catch a time when the weekly trail runs have tapered off, but it isn't ridiculously cold yet. I'm free just about any weekend after this one. Tell me when you're free, if you're interested, and I can work around that (specifically you, Wildturkee).
