Third member flange
« on: Apr 14, 2004, 05:59:40 PM »
I just got some third members with 5.29s and realized after I put them in that the bolt holes do't line up with my drive shafts. I'm havin' a hell of a time gettin the flanges off so I can switch them. Any easy solutions for this?
 :help:

Thanks anyway. Think drilling new holes is a good idea?

Just drill new holes 45 deg. from original holes using your drivesahft flange as a template

Ya I would redrill the flange too, but why is it so hard to get off there? That is kind of disturbing  :headscratch: well as long as they don't howl run them  :thumbs:

The biggest poblem is getting the flanges off the thirds that are no longer on the truck. They are hard to keep from spinning aroung when I try to losen the nut.
I'm not really sure if I can drill the holes well enough, so I'd rather swap flanges.
