I did the same thing with my old Gopher truck. Put a bunch of money into the rear end only to have the thing go bad again. Jerked it out and bought a used one and with a warranty and life has been good again. Darn truck is so quiet I almost can't stand it. 

Hope you get to the bottom of your problem. 

Cvans is your last sentence a pun or is it just my dirty little mind?

What kind of truck is it.  I'd look for a truck forum of that brand and see how they do it, good luck

Chronic problems with your wife's rear end can be a bad situation.


Sometimes there is enough to work with fixing up the old one, sometimes their are problems you can't see unless you can really get your head up in there.  Go grab a flash light and get a good look up in there!

Sorry to hear of the breaks, been there. Hope you can find the time and funds to get it fixed.


I did  a similar thing with my dad's AC HB212 back when we broke it in 1990 when ran low on oil. Rebuilt the motor, it ran for 3 hours then snapped another rod. Still sitting in the same spot in the barn where we pushed it.

This site should be able to find you what you need and maybe close to home as well.

I agree get rid of what you have. Replace whole unit from junk yard. Snapping parts like this more than likely has bent the tube enough to crunch another bearing. Doing this would be far easier than replacing parts again. Feel your pain been there too.

I am gonna put a nice heater in the garage to work on this thing though...Ohh wait..I dont have a garage...I will be on the cold hard ground in the driveway...LOL...wife will be there handing me tools though..thats worth something,It can always be worse!

I thought you were recently pointing out the warm weather your part of the country enjoys during the winter months?  :D


I don't believe you have ever seen what really cold hard (frozen) ground is until you have to change a Chevy starter on your plow truck at 10 PM in the middle of a "winter storm of the century" with a dozen customers raising heck because you still have not plowed their driveway. 


If you have never lost a 9/16" socket in a foot of snow under your truck then you really never have been real "frustrated"?

Sorry to hear about the new problem's with the rearend.  I know if I had done all that work and it went back out in such a short time I would replace the whole thing and just be done with it.  Good luck.

Sorry to here about the problems, I have a little Mazda pickup, VW bug and VW bus that are not running. My only running vehicle is a '81 chevy 1 ton dually that gets 9mpg (OUCH) Think it's a timing chain on the Mazda, the bug needs a engine put in it (and finish painting) and the bus has been sitting 10+ years lol.

I hope things turn around for you and if you don't have time to work on your Case loader/backhoe you can just give it to me :thumbs:  :poke:  :angel:
