    So, i take it the pinion needs to be pressed out of it's little carrier unit? or is there a "not so professional" way of removing this little 8a5tard?

    Remove the pinoin housing.
    Remove the pinion nut.
    Disassemble.
    Redneck way..
    Drop shaft.
    using a 3' pipe wrench and cheater bar secure the yoke.
    Loosen the pinion nut to where it turns easy.
    remove the housing and do what ya have to do.

    yes, i am just needing to remove the pinion from the small "pinion carrier" that unbolts from the front of the axle housing. it has two bearings on it and this is why i am assuming that it needs to be pressed off?

    I just used a press to get it our of the pinion housing and to get off the pinion bearing. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif If you don't have access to a press then run through a machine shop they should do it for a small $ hope I helped /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    if you look at very end of the pinion stem notice theres a center deperession for a punch, clamp the pinion gear bearing housing in a vise or somethign and punch out the pinion with a good round punch and BFH, have someone catch the pinioin gear though

    A press is the best, easiest, and fastest way to get them out. Every 14FF I've torn apart, I used a press to remove the pinions.

    BTW, the "little carrier unit" technical name is "pinion support housing." /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Yeah i had to miss the wheelin trip with all the buds out at FR42 here in Phoenix area, but i did manage to get the pinion off, while they were wheelin /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif
    i ended up taking it down the street to a Firestone shop where they happened to have a press, and let me tell you, it even gave the press a workout and when it finally popped,,, it literally popped and scared all of us when it did. Man that thing was on there. But as mentioned, it was replaced so i am currently now runnin 4.10's and all 8 lug /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    Thanks for the replies, it just took more than manual force to remove it.

    See ya on the trails soon locals /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    I don't really know what size it was, it's at a Firestone tire and service store, so whetever they use to press things on with. It really wasn't very big, heck the pinion teeth wouldn't fit through the bottom of the press, person had to stack plates to get the gear up high enough for it to drop to release the bearing. Just a small hand pump operated press, nothing automatic.
