    god feel like an idiot asking this but on my old front 10bolt to remove the hub was to take the cover off and the 2 snap rings and screw in 2 nuts that held the case on pull and out came the locking hub inner assembly, ok so Im about to install my lockrite (which Im sure ill be posting something about that) in my D60 but cant get the ****ing locking hubs out, did the same thing that i did w/ my 10bolt but the thing wont come out is there another snap ring or something :confused::confused::confused::confused:

    On a Dana 60 there are two snap rings. One large dia. ring that goes in the bearing hub body and holds the locking hub in. The other goes around the end of the stub shaft to hold the stubshaft seals into the back of the bearing hub and spindle.


    Now for the weirdness. On a recent D60 teardown we found two of the large dia snap rings stacked so to say. I removed one and couldn't get the locking hub out and felt the other snap ring in the groove with a pick. Pulled that one out and used the screws, that hold the outside part of the hub to the inner part of the locking hub, to get the inner locking hub out.

    Hope this helps.
