    Started tear down and inspection today, she was funky inside, gears in good shape just the upper and lower bearings on worm shaft are toast.Haven't done one of these before but the step by step instructions are in the -34, how hard could it be?

    Well if the fresh out of AIT E-2 screwed it up Uncle Sam just bought a new one. I don’t think he’d do the same if you do. Good luck! No pressure

    Got a little painting done today, more of an experiment, i see lots of sanding I'm gonna have to go back and do. Finally got my front steering gearbox adjusted out about right. I don't have a lot of the special tools and adapters they used in 3rd shop back in the day when rebuilding these so I made do. My kit was in good shape considering it was boxed up in 79.

    You have to pay special attention as you have to set the pre load on the the bearings and gears in 3 different places to get it right, pretty happy with how it came out. Doing leak test today, TM call for 10 psi for 10 minutes should be no leaks, I don't have what it takes to pressurize it, so just filled it halfway with 90 wt, and look for leaks, so far none.

    My only worry it the top race on my worm shaft was pretty rough, tried to smooth it up best I could, but I have a feeling I'll be back in here in a few years, in the meantime I'll be looking for a new worm shaft to squirrel away till then.

    All other gears looked great, the design of this box sucks, or I should say location, think I'll always try to park nose uphill to keep the water out.

    If no leaks I'll put it back in tomorrow.

    That puts grease between the shaft and bushing in the spindle. Not the wheel bearing,
    Check the LO. number 6 in the notes.

    By the way, that bushing is phenolic.

    Happy 4th Tom.

    Its been three years and you haven't finished? I thought it just needed the engine buttoned up and it would be good to go. What loser did you buy the hunk of junk from?
