I started a little bit on tearing down the front axle. I did manage to get one of the locking hubs off. Only had one cap screw that rounded out on that hub. Then I was off to town to get an axle nut socket, and then got the spindle and brakes off. I had then found I need a Ball Joint Spanner Wrench.

I'm using info off of Mr. N's 44 page for the tear down.
Mr.N's Dana 44 build up

I had to order from Napa # 278-2030 and will be here tomorrow


You can see the inner ball joint preload nut here


So far about 3 hours to get one side this far






Also, today I did a little horse trading. Traded my Lincoln 185 tig for a Thermal dynamics 180 Tig/Arc and a Hypertherm 30 Plasma cutter and bought a Lincoln 180 HD Mig. They will be coming next week. I should be set-up for the cutting and welding for the project pretty good now.

My little basement furnace-room machine shop has been a "catch all" this winter. So in the the morning I'm holding my breath and "going in" to clean it up. If I don't come out by nightfall, better send someone in after me.

It was a long afternoon, but I was able to get both knuckles off. Of course I manage to bugger up some threads in one of the upper C's. Now I need to figure out what size threads are in there, and will have to get a tap! I'm sure that will be cheap..........looks like it's bigger than 1".

I figured out the thread size of the upper C's, its 1 1/8-12. I might try slotting a bolt and thread it up from the bottom to try and clean up them top threads. If that doesn't work, I guess I will have to try and find a used tap on fleebay.

The first of the 3 new toys showed up today.




I got my old tig ready for the trade in tomorrow.


I'm keeping my old cart that was homemade. I'm going to convert it to hold 2 tanks, the new mig, and the new plasma and new tig thats coming tomorrow.

Worked on remodeling the old weld cart tonight, to fit 3 machines and 2 tanks.











Thats it for today. Tomorrow I will make a extension cord with 3 outlet plug-in bank, on board air line, cord holders, and tig filler rod holders.

I hate working with 10ga wire with only 1 hand



Now I have one cord to anywhere in the garage and use any of the 3 machines with just a flip of a switch.





All self contained now.

About impossible to find anything made 100% in the USA, but this is the best I could do.

Motor says assembled in Mexico. Made in the USA means, we put the stickers on here in the States.
