when the diffs for the raffle rig got built, they installed the thrust block and spider block. problem is, i have to get them out to measure for c clips and to install clips.

how do you get the spider block off the short cross shaft?

Doesn't Joe know? Well, uhh, Robbie's in town. I hope that isn't a secret. :(

no way to reach joe over the weekend and this needs to go together today since i'll be gone next weekend and the friday after it goes to the 4wpw expo.

if it doesn't get together, it doesn't go, which means even more of a loss of ticket sales. we're really hurting since we didn't get it to easter jeep and they cancelled the ohv expo. :(

I am confused trying to decipher what you are asking. Are you saying both carriers are full floating versions? If memory serves me right you can remove the support block by removing the long drive pin and one of the short ones. All three pins have a lock bolt in the end. I can't come by today but I should be able to be reached via cell phone most of the day....

IIRC, the front is supposed to be an RD-33 and the rear an RD-124.

short shaft does not have the lock pin. does is press in from the inside? the directions that came with the locker really dont' say squat.

I believe it does and a quick Internet search seems to agree....

I know Ige is aware of this thread, just cross posting for future reference.

Leave it alone for a bit and I'll give it a try when I get there

why? is he going to come install it? or to tell him that if i was broken down in the outback and waiting on his technical dept for help, i'd be dead?

I know you've been trying real hard to get this done, Ige. Maybe we should call Joe or Christo or Robbie and have one of them do it. :)

the block is out. Called poser and with 4:88 gears the housing needs to be modified. The arb was not installed with the ability to field repair. 3/8 needs to be removed from the carrier.

not just field repair. you cannot install the cclips unless the housing is modified first.

I called ARB today to talk to Lisa and Chris Wood answered. I mentioned our problem to him. He said that some small amount needed to be ground off the ring gear, not the housing. You might want to call him. 425-264-1391

Also, he suggested I leave a message with Lisa about the bumper, which I did. :D

We, Rising Sun 4WD Club, need a volunteer to drop by Ige's house tonight or tomorrow and R&R the freshly installed locked diff out of the rear and reinstall the stock carrier for now. I will be happy to take care of the rear diff and get it reinstalled soon but I cannot pull enough time right now to R&R it this weekend. The rear is currently on jackstands with no axles installed so it is an easy unbolt and swap carriers then install axles, c-clips replace rear cover and add some gear lube so the vehicle is mobile again. Please don't ignore this request and think "someone else" will do it as those "someone else's" are burning out! YOUR CLUB NEEDS YOU!

OK, I can volunteer to be a warm body or wrench monkey...but seeing as how I don't understand (more than) half of what you just said, I need someone to order me around. (And my wife is too busy at the moment.) Let me know if this newb can help in any way.

i won't be home tomorrow or saturday. so i'm not instructional help. getting the arb out is self explanatory. unbolt the diff and pull.

don't know how soon kevin can get it done. if he can get it done before next weekend, the old diff won't need to go in. if not, than just bolt in new diff, slide axles all the way in, install c clips on ends of axle shafts and push/pull the axles out until they hit on the c clips. insert block in the middle and drop cross shaft through housing. install bolt/pin that holds the cross shaft.

install cover and fill to bottom of fill plug.

Does it need to get delivered to you? I could probably get over there and pull it tomorrow. I won't bother putting the old one in if you'll have it back in time to install for next weekend's shows. I'm out of town Tuesday through Friday so I can't help putting it back in.

I could swing by and grab it from Ige's on my way back through town from C-sprigs tommorrow evening. That would be awesome Chris! I really don't need any help putting it back in although it would be nice as I have a couple other things to do on the RT. I don't have much free time right now either but I did raise my hand and say I would like the club to take this on so .......

Well, I hid from the real world for a couple hours this morning and am pleased to report the RT is ready for Ige to haul to it's next venue! The rear diff is together, lubed and sitting on rubber again, drive shaft connected and even the T-case is fully functional now as I installed to elusive missing FWD parts! I did not get a chance to tune it or anything else and will have to make time soon to get that done! A huge thanks to Ige again for her on going time sacrifice for OUR CLUB's commitment!!!!!!! :bowdown: :Princess: There is still several little things to get done so I do hope others will commit a little more time out of their busy scheduals to follow through with OUR commitment! Another HUGE THANK YOU to Sharkbait and TimBuck2 for R&Ring the carrier last weekend for me....couldn't have got it done without you! One blue line and some wires away from true 4WD....were getting close! :thumb: :bowdown: :risingsun :woot: :woot: :beer2: :perry:
