    Does this type of post with pics in it create bandwith issues that you are having Steve? If so I won't post as many pics in the future...

    I belive the pics only use steves bandwith if they are posted on the CK5 servers, IIf they are posted say on the off-road.com test forum they use up off-road.com's bandwith.

    Better yet, post them to <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.zing.com>http://www.zing.com</A>. That is what they are in business for. It's not cool to tie up off-roads bandwidth either.

    Cool beans Burt. Looks like your ready to rock. And yes Executioner is always like that. I try to ignore him as best I can. I like the part where he twisted my words about saying he was a little off and refered it to the crush sleeve. he must be an attorney or something. They are always good at that.
    So are you starting it tonight? Looks like I'll be right there with you only 2500 miles away and 2 hours ahead. I've already started a step by step right up on the setup, but it is for the GM 10 bolt (Executioner) not the DANA 44, the one that has no crush sleeve. The aticle is written I just have to add the pics. Which is the owrst part. Cause I hate reaching over to grap the camera with greasy fingers. My son would love to do that part but he hasn't quite got the digi-cam down yet. I tried relating it to Digi-Mon but that didn't help. LMFAO!!!!
    What happen to the good ol cartoons, like GIjoe and Roadrunner, MEE MEE............ Rock on Burt.
    Im assuming you'll have the LZ cranking and the beer flowing...

    Will work for beer, parts and tools.

    Ahhh Yes!! Tonight is the night!! Even double checked with the wife, "so honey, you remember that I'm gonna spend ALL night in the gararge on Friday when I get home, right?", " Ya thats cool." YYYeeeeeeHaaaaaa, PARTY PASS~ oppps did I say that out loud. I mean I've got allot of serious work to do there will be no partying......NOT !!! ya Right The 20pack and bag of ice for the ice chest is the only thing left I need to get for tonights adveture!! The mighty LZ will be the main appitite to get me in the mood... maby an acasional fire here in there[​IMG].
    Another thing that is different on the D44 is the carrier shims are on the inside of the berrings so I will need to do the old berring trick so I'm not pressing and pulling all night.....
    It will be cool to see your 10 bolt stuff too and maby the both of our write ups side by side would help someone decide if they want a D44 or 10 for there front??!! But allot of folks have D60 feaver and probly think were crazy for even messin with this 1/2 ton stuff...

    Yeah your crazy Burt.[​IMG] I've got both the 60 and 44. If a 44 is all someone needs then that's great. Not everyone will need a 60. Look forward to seeing the complete job. You go Burt and have fun at it. That's what it's all about.[​IMG].

    Ok so I learned something new today. Damn on the inside under the bearings?? Thats F'ed up. Can these designers not give us a break? Thats like the geeks that designed Unix. Yeah its all mighty and powerful, but it is not user friendly.

    Ok, so Executioner you were right, my bad. Cant wait to see your smarta$$ reply to this. :o

    Will work for beer, parts and tools.

    Wow, is there some set of planets in a wierd alignment this week? I'll also be doing a R&P this weekend. Finally have all of the parts to fix the puny 7.5 inch rear under my S-Jimmy. I'll be installing a new Torsen diff, R&P, bearings, axle bearings and seals. Figured I might as well update everything while I'm in there.

    I've always farmed out R&P work in the past, as I could find places that would do it for $150 or so. Every place I called in Colorado Springs quoted me $350 just for labor, so I figured for that price I can learn how to do myself! [​IMG]

    I know it seems all the R&P shops relize they do 'Specilty' work so they hike up the price thinking 'we' don't have a choice. Welcome to 2001 the POWER of a web community filled with helpful and just down right cool people is now the reason that DOES give us the choice to research and DOIT our selves!!!
    I can't stop thinking about that 20pack..........[​IMG] is this day at work over yet????????????

    I was really tripped out by the amount of horror stories. But I too was willing to take the plung adn givie it a go. And to this point I am gald that I did. Its not that complicated. ITs all simple in theory. Just lining it up fron to back and side to side. As long as you know what the correct results should be and the knowledge of the type setup your building... your in there, providing you have good basic mechanical comprehension.
    I agree that they must have a speciality complex when they came up with the prices for doing these things.
    From scratch, I had mine in and setup filled with fluid and test driven in 3 hours. Well, I already had the correct pinion depth. So add and extra hour for that had I had to find it again.
    Still 4 hours at the avg. rate of 50/hr only adds up to $200.
    Go figure, guess its the same as the rising gas prices a?
    Were' s the speciality there??? Gonna have to start driving JIMI flinstone style. But I'll have to wait for my floor pans to rust out.
