Well took off the driveshaft last night and went to remove the pinion but no ratchet i had was big enough. I didnt measure it. I was sondering if you guys knew the size of the pinion nut on a dana 44 so i can pick up the apropriate size ratchet on the way home. Thanks. update: Ok now i cant get the dan thing off I locked the hubs and chalked the wheels but the nut wont budge. am i not doing something i just bathed it in penetrating oil and ill try in a bit. also what does the pinion nut need to be torqued too?
