Re: How do I remove rear drag links?

After removing the nuts, find the 2 threaded holes in the steel flange side. Thread in a 8x1.25 bolt to slit units apart. Use a new gasket going back together and do not loose the wave shim or coupling.

Re: CV AXLE

This has been done before, and it works fine as long as there is enough movement. If I recall, a 960 or 980 joint was used.

Re: Rear drive failure...?

You will most likely find it sheared before the "paddle" on the inboard end.(most common axle failure point)

Re: Rear drive failure...?

Broken axle or spider gear in diff.
Put it in gear, raise it up lock the diff. The wheel that spins has the fault(most likely a sheared axle shaft).

Re: Big smoke, big oil mess, big problem! Advice/confirmati

No special tools to remove the piston. Just remove the retainer and slide the pin out, you will have to remove the #1 piston to remove the bad #2 piston. If the pin is stuck, use a nut and long bolt through the pin and pull it out.

Re: rebuilding a transmission

New unit, Ha, Ha,(finding 1) that makes me laugh :P Usually cheaper to fix if you don't run it dry :wink: The parts you pray are good are #1 Case,#2 main shaft, #3 cluster shaft(5th,4th, and 3rd driven gears are press fit @200deg F). Basic ZF trans, it's not so much the tools but there is a learning...

If you pick it up, stop by San Bernardino on the way home to Stockton. I can tell you the most cost effective direction. Bring a memory stick :wink:
