Default ARB tool for semi floating air locker

Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

I believe that there is a tool that is necessary to remove the pinion shaft in ARB installed in a semi floating axle.

Where can I find one of these locally? I am removing the ARB that is installed in the front of my FJ60, and will be installing it in the rear of an FJ55.

Is there a "name" for this tool?

Could you clarify? You talking about the pinion shaft of the DIFF itself? Or the pinions INSIDE the locker. As in, you're disassembling the locker?

If you're talking about the main diff shaft, I have a semi float rear, which I put an ARB into, and there was no tool other than a press needed to remove the main diff pinion shaft.

I have no idea about the guts of the locker.

A landcruiser rear axle is a semi floating axle with a c-clip unlike the mini truck stuff which is held on by the outer flange.

I have never actually seen it, but I know there is a special tool needed to remove the diff from the axle housing. You have to slide the pinion shaft out of the way in order to remove the c-clips.

Are you talking about the allen wrench looking thing with threads on the short end? I have two of them.

My guess is yes. Are these readily available in shops around town?

You can some times remove the short sections with out the tool. After removing the lock with the allen key, use a pick to try and catch the threads. Some time it will pull out easy. Other wise you can try to a small allen wrench to screw into the retainer and pull it out. Good luck with this, later robbie
