So time for the trans axle....

Have decided to use the axle I got with the newer pan because the bracket and everything is ok.

Bearings on the previous axle came off with a few taps and some prying... Not these it was keeping me up at night.


Bought a whole gearbox seal kit was going to remove axle tubes and then pull off that way... But decided against it because they only provide two of those gaskets in the kit and you seem to need two or three on each side. Also didn't want to tear into too much. Was going to cut races remove balls etc etc... Then remembered two little fingers I had made to try and get the pilot bearings from the beam that I messaged about a few days ago...

Just went to the garage drilled the holes a little bigger. Fitted them to my large gear puller and they came out like they were sliding on butter.

A small pic of the tool made from two pieces of flat bar and a little time with the angle and bench grinder. ImageImageImage

Also thought I would share what my 3/8 power bar and hardened 36 socket did to what was supposed to hold the drum when removing the one castle nut.

Wrapped it inside out around the drum...

Thanks for the encouragement guys.

So after a lot of work this weekend I have a rolling chassis.

Using a temp front beam as I am not yet done with the one I am redoing but axles on...

Bought 4 new ATE drum cylinders. There is a big one and a small one. Put the small ones on the back and broke both the lobes when i tightened them down. Wondering if I put the wrong ones in the back, but understood the bigger ones go at the front... Anyone come across this before?

Put paper gaskets on the axles with the o- rings I bought. Can't find my pesky vernier so can't give the sizes but will as soon as I find them.

I need some advice on the order of events for assembly from guys that have done this before please.

My thinking is the following:

1) refill gearbox and check for leaks
2) tread plate floor pans and seat brackets
3) brake lines including hand brake
3) Peddle box including clutch and Accelerator cable, brake bleeding
4) fuel line
5) Engine back in including clutch
6) body
7) steering and dash
8) electrics
9) roll bars and bumpers
