    On a 3/4 ton D44 carrier, with 4.10 gears, is the retaining pin held in place by a nut & bolt?

    The carrier isn't threaded for the type of bolt used in a 10 bolt, and the D44's hole goes all the way through the carrier to the other side. This make me think that maybe a nut & bolt are used to hold the pin in place?

    If so, will a grade 8 nut & bolt of the right size work? or do I need a special one made for this application?

    Thanks,

    Thomas.

    I just had my D44 completely apart a couple months ago.
    I cannot visualize what you are talking about. It is Monday morning so my brain ain't working too well right now[​IMG] but if you would discrbe what pin yer talkin about I can tell you if my D44 has it. I don't recall any type of pin what so ever........

    If it's what I'm thinking, It's a rollpin. I drove the pin out that was in that thing so that I could clean out the internals. The pin was thrashed. The 10 bolt uses a small bolt.

    Ok, what I'm talking about is the pin that goes inside the carrier, between the spider gears, to stop the axleshafts from being pushed in too far.

    The screw I'm talking about, goes through the side of the carrier and into the pin. It holds the pin in place so it doesn't slide around.

    On the 10 bolt, there is a hole that goes through the carrier and the pin, but not out the back of the ring gear. It is threaded within the carrier and a bolt screws into it to hold the pin.

    On the D44, the hole goes through the carrier, the pin, and the back of the ring gear, but there are no threads in the hole.

    This is why I think it might be a nut &amp; bolt combo.

    that's the rollpin. That's what I thought you were talking about, but I wanted to make sure.

    So do I use a nut &amp; bolt to hold it in place? Was that what you took out of there, or was it a single bolt with threads?

    A rollpin is a split pin that when you drive it it expands. That's all that I've ever seen in a 44. There's no bolt or anything. The 10 has a threaded hole with a small bolt that threads in to hold it in place, the roll pin does that duty on the 44.

    Any gear shop should have it, if not, you can prb. find it at a hardware store. I'll see if I've still got the old one at the house tonight to give you an idea of what it looks like.

    All you do is line it up and tap it down in there, like I said, it will seperate out as it goes and hold it all together.
