  • rear locker

    OK, I'm a virgin when it comes to pulling a differential cover off. Any advice or words of wisdom? I'm planning on installing a Powertrax No slip in my rear axle this Thursday before goin' wheelin' on Friday?

    so far here's my list of stuff to get (besides locker of course):
    brake cleaner to clean inside diff.
    gear oil for after job's finished
    wheel bearing grease (locker parts)
    new gasket

    tools I think I'll need (looked at instructions off this site):
    punch for rollpin
    small 1/4 " wrench (advice from fellow wheeler)
    unknown size torx bit (advice from fellow wheeler)

    I have an AMC 20 in the rear by the way with open carrier. Thanks

    leave the top bolt in the cover in and loose when you start to pry the cover off. have a large something to catch the gear oil. you shouldn't need brake parts cleaner unless you've got a mess in there, in which case you probably won't be able to clean it anyway. needle nose pliers always come in handy and a very small flat screw driver for putting the springs in. i'm pretty sure the 1/4" wrench has to be a 12 point, the 6 point won't work.

    i always like some liquid patience to....
