Didn't the nut come from Genuine too. :finger:Sandman said:I forgot about the gear wear, good point.
Yeah the Genuin gears are not great but I'm in a hurry so I'll just get them to replace them. To give them credit, They were not the root cause, the pinion nut let go and the pinion gear shot into the housing under a heavy load. The threads on it look fine. I now have a pinion nut with no threads on it. :?
Thanks for the order Matt :thumb:Sandman said:Well I just got off the phone with HBRK in Boise and they hooked me up with a set of Yukon gears and an install kit. I might be able to get them in this weekend!
I might make Twin Falls yet. 8)
Wrong there captian, any repuable gear company matches the pinion and ring gear together to aide in setup. Most won't sell you a pinion for your afore mentioned statements.AJ Johnson said:it isn't that they are matched sets... its that they wear to each other, so if you put another pinion with the ring gear, you will have whining and clatter and clash like you wouldn't believe.... we had a kid try that at school on his rig a couple of years ago... it was funny.... :rotfl: :rotfl: he lasted about a week, then he put a whole new set in.
Eric, great idea, and it has been tried before in rock crawling rigs......And it doesnt work out.blazinzuk said:Just a thought has anyone every used drag race gears? They are a little bit softer to deal with the shock loads that a drag car puts on the gears. If you drive it on the street they won't last very long but there are alot of rigs that don't get driven on the street (like Matts) except to the trail and back again. You would have to talk to a gear manfacturer to really get the lowdown on these but for people with big motors and big tires it might make some sense. :rotfl: :rotfl:
