Axle/Differential/Steering / 80 series axle mods help
« Last post by sjelite on Today at 09:25:03 AM »
Hello All
I'm looking for advice. I picked up a set of LC 80 series axles and planning to swap them onto my 1st gen. My questions are in regards to how to clean up the 80 series axles, removing all the tabs and spring perches, I have access to a plasma cutter, welder and of course an array of angle grinders.

Questions are:
 Seals: Is it possible to go through the clean up procedure and save the inner seals etc wile being installed?
Oil: Should I drain the oil prior to plasma or grinding, or leave oil in and drain after?
Welding of new tabs; Weld on tabs and perches with oil in the axle or remove oil? Can new  perches and tabs be welded on with axle complete.
Strip Down: should I just plan on completely striping down the axles to the bare housings?

Thanks for reading

Wow, well done!! How long has she been practicing that trail? I wish I'd been that good of a driver at 16, let alone 9!

The first time I drove any sort of vehicle was in the CA desert when I was 15, in my mom's 4Runner. Unfortunately, I proved to be good at stalling it (blame the clutch, which was the original and had over 250,000 miles on it at that time :) ). But it certainly made learning to drive way more interesting than just going in circles around a parking lot!

Well first day driving my truck and about the 4th time doing the trail. First two were with me copilot, then by herself after that. I had it in double 2.28's low and she ran in 2nd gear. There is one spot where the mirrors will fold in if it's not hit perfect. Theory was she was going to hurt in any worse than I ever had.

The first and only turtle I've seen was when I originally joined the forum, and it took 20 points from me. Every time I log on I hope to see a good turtle, but none of any kind have appeared yet!

Edit: just after I posted this I caught an "amazing 46 point magic turtle." Guess I know how to make them appear now :)

The ears can hear a loud ping, but the knock sensor will read it at a much quieter level

TRUE.

Got her filled back up, and the hose setup in a closed loop. Made bleeding the system easier! I could've just installed the plug on my intake and capped the other coolant port, but I would like the system to flow.
Works great so far.
