    If it is a D60, you are looking at a drift pin. I just finished installing a Aussie Locker in a D44 about 30 Minutes ago. Just hit it out with a punch.

    The drift pin holds the cross pin in place.
    I can go out to the garage and take a pic of what i am taking about on the D44. I also have the stock open carrier for my D60 out there since i replaced it with a detroit.

    Just get a punch and hit it out with a hammer. It is a roll pin. The 10 bolts use a bolt instead. Just do exactly what you see in Tim's pictures and you will get it easy. I can go dig out my carrier or the 44 i have on the bench to show you if you would like. Just let me know

    Also you will only need to remove it about as far as shown in that pic. Not all the way out unless you feel like it

    My ex took good pictures of the entire process. Took me about an hour including removing the driver's side axleshaft.

    The roll pin will come out ONLY when hit from left to right...in other words, punch goes in ring gear side, and roll pin comes out of the carrier that way.

    I used the air hammer as you see in the pics because it was pissing me off.

    Use a smaller drift to drive it out.

    Using the wrong tool for the job can often make it a PITA. Make sure you have the right size drift.

    The carrier only costs $65 to remove and throw in the trash, I'll be damned if I'm giving the strap on guy $85 for a punch to remove a roll pin when I can buy an entirely new carrier for that with free shipping.
