Spent the better part of yesterday under the '99 Dodge Ram taking the axle apart and putting new carrier and pinion bearings in the 9.25". Real similar to the smaller Chevy axles I'm used to, but just different enough the make it take longer. But, it's done and very quiet now. Front pinion bearing was BAD! I'll get pics in a bit and post them.

I have to weld up a stand for a pool heater for work today. Has to be done by Monday as the heater will come in then. Hope that goes smoothly this morning so I can start painting it.

My son & grandson are here and I want to spend time with them. Also working on getting Chris & Heather (my twins) speaking to each other again. I've had enough of that issue! I want the family together again! May have some pics of them all together later today! I'll be happy when that happens.

My twin girls are always at each others throats over something. Been that way for almost 28 years!

Good Luck with all issues. It is a beautifull day after the hurricane here. No damage, so we were lucky. My son and I are replacing brake lines on his Taurus. Hopefully we will atleast finish the rears today. These bubble joints are new to me but the tool from NAPA makes them easier than the old double flares. Good Luck, Rick

Same with these two! But it escalated to the point they wouldn't even be together for holidays! Makes for a very hard time for me and I want it to end!

I can come knock their heads together, but it will cost you an FF.

My two older ones are only 19 months apart. The younger one is always trying to plot the older one's demise (I'm kidding, but only a little).

I feel your pain there guys.

I just told them both that I'm getting older and am done with a split up family! I want all of us to be together as I grow older. We'll see what happens.

Here's a pic of the offending bearing causing the noise. The bearing cage is bent as I drove it out with the front seal from the back.

Here's the pool heater stand all together. Got a coat of Rust Reformer on it. Tomorrow, it gets some semi-gloss Black over that.

I had to make the legs adjustable as the pad it sits on has a slight 'list' to it, about 1" in 24".

Kenny, since you are done with that Dodge, I got a Turd Bronco that needs a rear main seal put in  :smilewink:

 

I am not talking to my nephew at the moment, actually two of them. Both of them blame other family members for their decision and mistakes and have chosen not to speak to us. I don't have time for their childish games, I am here if they need to talk to me.

Rear main seal on a what size engine?
Dad and I got really good at changing the rear seal in his 78 Ford 351Modified. (His dumb kid liked to make the cool kids look stupid at the traffic lights in town.) We could do it in about 1-1.5 hours once we got ready. Must've done it a half dozen times in three years.
The trick was to cut a flexible, cheap toothbrush in half lengthwise and use the handle as a flexible punch to push the upper old half up and around and then out of the block. Never had to drop the crank.

Alan, 1993 302 w/ a one piece rear main seal. Gotta pull transfer case and tranny then slide seal over end of crank. $12 seal.
I never had any oil spots in the driveway until we bought this Ford.

Sorry, I don't do tranny work! Not even to remove them!
