I actually did not take a close pic of it but he took off the diff collar too as it was not required.
From my experience, what I did was replacing all the dif bearing to a custom made cylinder cube where the dimension was fitting nicely. Tighten the center allen screw and you will have no way for diff action, completly solid. That was before my solid axle come out.

If I'm not wrong, you're relying from the metal to metal friction these cylinder metal pieces will provice against the metal plates? So how many of these cylinder metal pieces did you put to replace the balls? They should be 4 x 4 mm measurement right?

Correct, just replace all the bearings. The only concern here is where to get those cylinder metal pieces? My rear diff outdrive cup start to wear out, any solution?

I guess get a 4 mm cyclindrical rod and cut them out at every 4 mm intervals...

Replace one side of the dogbone with a 11.7 mm pin. The stock one is 9.7 mm. The side of the dogbone with the longer pin should go into the diff outdrive.



Of course, replace the diff outdrives with a new one and with these modified dogbones, the diff outdrive will last much longer.

That is one way another of doing it. What about the dogbone, where can we get those pins?

Geez Mark, I know you're old but I didn't realise you were already born during the mini-skirt era!

What's the difference between panties in the 60s and panties these days?

Anyway, I also changed the dogbone pins from time to time as they flatten out after constant usage. What I do to pro-long the usage of these pins is to knock them out, turn them 90 degrees and knock them back in. You'll get a "new" pin.

Good tips D, not sure what Serpent thinks of these cheap mods but I'm sure they'll survive!

Any good tips for a cheap Shuffle? Maybe knock something out of a cassette player and then hammer parts of it back into a broken pen-drive case and voila! Cheap iPod!

Is he still around? They're so quiet these days ... maybe that's why ... Serpent found out he was knocking out pins and replacing them and ... take a guess.

Usually, the hardware shops that deals with bolts and nuts will have them. They are called dowel pins. But they come in standard 12 mm or 10 mm. The ones we're looking for is 11.7 mm and 9.7 mm. So therefore you need to do some grinding off the edge of the pins to round and chamfer them.

I always strive to be better.

Wait a minute... Who do you call cheap? A person who knocks out pins from a dogbone worth few bucks or a person who waits for a free iPod?

Digging out old discussions Onkel Sow?

Americans: Panties as in Pants as in Trousers.

British: Panties as in underwear !

This was what Mark confirmed too.

Well, being winter in Europe, one would froze anywhere anyway ... just ask our friend over there who is planning on running over to Floriday just to start his engine up!
