All better.

I owe a HUGE thanks to Robbie for graciously freezing his tail off helping me do this, while missing dinner with the family.

Thank you so much sir, I owe you huge. Next NSTBC that we are both at, your meal is on me.





I spent the rest of the evening cleaning the VERY few parts I actually needed from this mess. Struck me as a little funny, but then again, I'd just spent 3 hours around a tub of parts cleaner.

Parts you need



Parts you don't



Again, thank you Robbie.

Oh, and UB's press is impressive to say the least. I'm fairly sure he wins.

Yes I did miss a little family time, but in some ways this is more fun. This looks like a fun project and well thought out.
I have a suit(cold weather suit, not a tux) and did not freeze, but I was wondering if you brought enough cloths. Maybe next time it will be inside a comfortable enclosed area that is heated.
UB press makes short work of stuff, When he wants it back I will just have to invest in something similar.
Good luck with the rest of the project AxleIke.

The only thing that was cold was my hands, and I haven't figured out a way to work with small parts and wear heavy gloves yet. I think my attire was decieving. I was wearing a long john shirt, a long sleeved shirt, and a sweatshirt, and then my down coat, as well as wool socks, and long john pants under my carharts. I was nice and warm, excepting the old hands.

Thanks again!

Hey Isaac, save that output shaft. Not often, but it is a failure point.
Depending on condition, the input bearing is not terribly expensive to replace at this point and can save some heartache later.

Thanks Bill. I will look at that bearing, and save the shaft.

What about the other bearing? I'm nervous about both, but is the other one only used in low range, or do they both spin regardless?

The case wasn't in the best of shape. Its all clean now, but it looks like it saw some outside time. The internals are all good, but those two outter bearing were full of old grease and dirt. I've cleaned them REALLY well, but perhaps a replacement is in order.

They both spin full time. Only the output speeds change depending on whether the straight-through mesh is engaged, or the low range mesh, to the shaft.
Cheap insurance to replace them! Especially since the dirt problem you describe.

Non-Toyota, but same brand, sourced through alternate suppliers. NSK/Koyo, as long as it says that, you are happy.
