so today, me and benson swiched out my front diff. ...needless to say after 8hrs of work, the new diff works fine but the 4wd is still a no go. anyways, when i was draining the old fluid there were nice chuncks of metal and metal shavings all over the place. it turns out it was the spyder gear that was completley destoryed and was cracked in half with a bunch of teeth missing. so heres the pics.

some pieces of missing teeth an the bottom of the housing


pics of the spyder gears




and some more teeth missing:





as far as the 4wd still not working, im going to change out the cvs, if that doesnt work maybe the chain in the tcase snapped when the gears broke so ill check that out. maybe i just need a new actuator?

you should put it on your mantle or on a coffee table as a conversational piece, car parts make great furniture assets

greg, you can vaccum test the actuator assembly with one of those kits from autozone(inexpensive) to see if its working correctly. i'm not sure how the cv's would change anything, they should turn if the diff is engaged. i've got a haynes manual that shows how to check the actuator. can you "hear" anything when you engage the t/case?

Trust me it works great, my pops has a piece of a driveshart sitting on his desk at work, turned him into the coolest guy in the office by the end of the day.

I'd have to agree find this on your camera
(Macro) and turn it on for close-up pictures. if you dont have it get a new camera (or you can get a new lens)

you can also try a magnifying glass

ya but if you use it make sure to be zoomed all the way out or the pic will be out of focus.

good to hear you'll be getting 4WD back (hopefully I'll have it by April)
