    Yeah I read that article but didn't tell me how to actually shave it I have seen an write up that showed it being done with a sawsall and a grinder. Ric what tools do I need to do it. If I have them how about you come to my place that is a lot of stuff to drag around and I will have it home by next weekend hopefully....Jason

    sawzall and a good grinder is all that you need. what you want to do is remove or smooth out the lower lip.

    just remove the cover and screw the bottom bolts back on the housing use them as reference as to how much to cut off.

    then stuff the housing with some rags so you wont get any shavings in there. cut off the big chunks and grind everything smooth. once you're done with the housing, bolt the cover back up and cut to match.

    one thing, after you cut the cover you might run into a problem i had. everytime i drug the diff i would peel back the cover and it would cause it to leak. you might have to beef up that area of the cover to prevent it from happening..

    An easy fix for that is to remove the cover and trim the edge of the cover so that it is 1/8th of an inch or so smaller than the housing. That will prevent most things from snagging the cover and peeling it back. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Do you use gel or foam? Cartridge or disposable.
