Ok question? hard to tell from the picture,but did you take the bolt out? Heat that thing up and hit it with an air impact wrench! it will pop off!

Like Dave said. Make sure the bolt's out, heat it up, and give it hell with the impact. It will come off.

The bolt and washer are out. In the picture I have the bolt back in without the washer. I had the torch on it again tonight and now letting it soak until tomorrow. It just has to be stubborn. 😃

Thanks.

I have had good luck with a puller and a pneumatic air hammer. It was a multi step process of tightening then hammering tightening then hammering.

I tried more heat tonight and then the impact. Well the bolts holding the puller broke off. I am going to take it to a friends tomorrow night and borrow his press. If that doesn't work I will hit it with the cut off wheel and get a new yolk.

Here is a close up of the yolk, it really doesn't look that bad. I wonder if the last person who put it on had the splines misaligned when it went on.

Yolk

On a good note the crossember is all clean and the first coat of paint has been applied!

The splines are not misaligned, they would self correct anyway when tightened.

You have eastern rust. what type of heat are you using, pictures do not work for me here at lunch while working. Too many security IT people keeping us safe from dangerous websites.grinning smiley

I have to use an oxy-acetylene torch on many here in the east. And I also have worn out the Clark's puller bolt and had to drill and tap new holes in the plate.

Success, after much heat it is off. Here are a few pictures and I think I should get a new yolk and possibly an axle. Do these splines look bad to you?

Keith,

When you slide them back together does it feel like there is a lot of slop between the yoke and axle?

Time for some updates:

Thanks to Davemotohead I have a 'new to me' yoke. It fits way better than the one I pulled off.

I have the transmission all cleaned up and resealed. I found the source of the oil leak. A few years ago I installed a new reverse light switch seal but that never really fixed the leak. Well I found out there were two seals. One of them was wedged into the transmission. So now I have the one seal on the switch. I bet the reverse lights will even work now!

I am in the process of resealing the differential. I had a leak from the input shaft and that was the root cause of the slipping clutch. If you look at the picture I attached you can see there are two seals in the tube. I cannot see the split ring washer in there. I am guessing this in the main problem here. The shaft doesn't have any wear on it and I am not sure why the two seal were used. Tomorrow I will get my slide hammer and pull this out to inspect.

Other than that most of the work has been around cleaning and painting parts. I hope to have some final pictures soon of the finished parts.

Look closely at the 7 o'clock position on the snout. Is tht a crack and does it extend back to the seals? If so then the snout needs to be changed and that means a diff rebuild. Resealed at the minumum but I don't like putting used bearings back in a diff.

Ken,

I looked all around the snout and I believe it was dirt in the picture. I cannot see any signs of a crack.

Thanks,

Ken,

Here is a picture with it cleaned up. I did see the mark you were referring to at the 7:00 position but after further inspection is looks good. I could not feel any kind of crack in the housing.

Now why there were two seals and no split ring is beyond me. I will fix that now.

Thanks for the information.

With some careful measuring you will discover there is room for 2 seals AND the split ring in the stock housing. The outer most seal will however require some tweaking to get it to fit snug. PM me.

I have the new seals installed, split ring and gaskets. I still have to put the axle seals in but it is coming along! I am waiting to install the top cover until the seals are done.

It almost looks to good to install. spinning smiley sticking its tongue out

Getting closer to completion!!!

It feels like Christmas.

I have a few new toys to add to my project.

I got the exhaust logs and bushings from David Kostich, one of Seth's Distributors from vair1 here on the forum, some billet pulleys and a change in color on the shrouds.

I painted the engine compartment black so decided to make the engine tin body color. I guess this is BLING for me. spinning smiley sticking its tongue out

Making progress. New brake and fuel lines installed. Heater box reinstalled and rear suspension ready to go in. New speedometer cable installed.

This weekend the suspension, engine and transmission are ready to go!
