    Theres a cup washer that fits between the outer bearing and the hubs spring. Which way does it sit?

    1.Should the lip turn out to the spring (and then will sit flush on the bearing)

    2.Or should it face inwards (and rest on the bearing cup edge leaving the spring to sit on its backside).

    Ive run it both ways to check wear but my experiment was stuffed due to an un-related operator induced mechanical %^&* up. /forums/images/icons/blush.gif

    some drawings will show it facing inwards but I install them facing out.. it really doesnt matter.. I prefer it to cup the spring that sits right there.. there is nothing to be protected behind it. I have seen them both ways with absolutely no ill effects either way.

    Do you have a pic or link to a pic of the full time drive flange assemblies. I found some at the wreckers for emergency use but I don't have any cupped washer. All that was there were the spring, drive flanges, then the cover.

    I scanned these in just now:

    Part-time D44 and Full-time D44

    Theres also one for D60 but I wasnt feeling that generous /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    hope they help... you can see #9 & 16 which they refer to as the pressure plate.. the cup is pointing in.. I think thats bogus /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    I left em real high resolution, hope you like em
