The 12 Days of Christmas OkieRover Style

10th day of Christmas my true love gave to me…
Ten nuts to tighten

There are ten nuts holding the rear differential on the axle housing. I had to pull the differential to remove the piece of broken axle out of the differential. To get it out I also had to sacrifice a screwdriver and convert it to a long narrow punch.

It was kinda awesome to see how the differential worked. It is almost magical, sort of how you imagine Santa’s workshop functions. I would have liked to done this job while my Classic was on a rack but I learned that I can do this job flat on my back. So if ever I see a differential go out on the trail, I know I can do this job. All the mystery is gone.

I love to hear from my readers, leave a reply
