    Didn't want to grind it any further. Not sure how much penetration I was getting while welding, but I was blowing holes in it.

        Thanks Harry. Yep, black paints hides a lot in this case.

          This came out of the pocket between the pinion bearings. Looks like a shim, but I'm getting ahead of myself.

          Youtube is a wealth of knowledge and I learned that the Dana 44 had been marked on the caps so you cannot mix them up. Note the location and position of the K for each side.

          Not much preload on the pinion bearings either.

          • There is a formula for these numbers, but I'd have to refer back to a Youtube video made by "Metalshaper" for the math.

            The bearings came out by hand of which I don't think they are supposed to.

            Oops. This carrier appears to have some abuse in it's pass. Time for tea.

            • Twin traction . When you reassemble, the axels must be in the carrier be fore tighting the 2 half together to align the splined plates.

              • Nice axle for towing a 3.73 ratio

                • Divide the 11 into 41 will give you the ratio.

                    • Does anyone recall someone offering a Traction Lok carrier on the forum?

                      Comment


                      • Traction loc is a generic term, usually Chrysler/Mopar specific. I have rebuile Studebaker twin traction carriers using mopar traction loc parts. Some even had the 19 spline gears.

                          Oops, I should have said "Twin Traction", also probably a generic term for Studebaker. I moved onto the master cylinder/Turner install kit.

                          I removed the front brake residual valve out of the AMC master. The rear one won't make a difference, even by adding another one down the line, from what I've read.

                          I pulled the brass flare fitting with a screw.

                          When it comes to bench bleeding without a residual valve, it takes blocking the hole with your finger to keep the return stroke from sucking air right back in.

                          Bled and capped off so I can install it without making even more of a mess.

                          • Instructions indicate another hole needs to be drilled into the floor for access to the other reservoir that would otherwise be covered. They even provide a plug to cover the hole.

                            Fitting the master was close, but Jim Turner did a fine job of getting it just right.

                            The pedal brace hits the new master, so I had to "modify" it.

                            Clearance is so close, the bolt doesn't sit right either.

                            So it gets the die grinder.

                            So it's finally in and while not the greatest access, I can fill both reservoirs with a funnel. Brake lines are next and once done, I can finally start reinstalling the transmission.

                              Limited Slip is the generic term. Traction Lok is a Ford specific term. Sure Grip is the Mopar term and Positraction is the Chevrolet term.

                              • Seeing as how my differential is beat, does anyone know if any Dana 44 carrier will fit? I'm looking at this one.

                                https://shop.broncograveyard.com/D44...uctinfo/22094/

                                I suppose axle spline count would be different.
