    after installing the locker required me pulling the shaft out 6 inches, when i put it back i noticed a gap that looks like fluid would pour out of it not to mention stuff getting in.. is this normal or is something wrong?

    the axle seal is further inboard in the tube..i think thats more to trap large debris from entering..

    On dana 60's 44's and any bearing cap design (not like a 14FF) you just have to keep the same bearings on the carrier and leave the shims in the same order on the same sides as it came. It is that easy.

    oh and the seal is in the tube farther. It can leak if you gouged it with the axle thuogh (I did this so don't fell alone if it happens)

    post count doesnt matter all that much IMO... if i never owned, saw or touched a d60 before, how would i know about them? i did do a search but with such a wierd description i didnt have much luck. Before my truck i never even touched a wrench before so this is ALL new to me so i can only learn as i go. i dont know what you know about rockwells or uni mogs, but youve been bere almost 4 years now and that doesnt make you an expert in every field though

    I just look at post counting as the number of new things learned. If you came in here as a clean hand rookie and now have 2500+ posts you are probably about the median as far as wrenching knowledge goes. I have moderate to good expierience wrenching and still have learned about a 150 new things (my post count /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif)

    That is all (said like a school principle)

    Brandon,

    Something looks weird with that pic? Is that inner axle ALL the way in, with the outer kunckle/rotor/hub installed?

    It looks like it's sticking out about 1" too much for some reason....


    Damn, now I'm going to have to go outside and look at MINE! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    .....Ok, I'm back...I wasn't kidding I went outside and took this pic with a flashlight:

    [​IMG]


    See how much DEEPER the inner axle sits in this pic? Also, there IS a sort of scraper/seal on the back edge of the inner axleshaft that is there to keep the major crap out of the tube... once it's installed things will look more "correct"! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    it should be "shoved" in more, did you put together the outers yet? i dont see how the spindle would fit right witht he outer shaft being so far out.
