Last year my dana 30 Pinion shaft pin fell out and from the pinion shaft moving back and forth caused some minor damage. I installed a new pin and everthing seemed fine.

Yesterday's outing caused the pin to pop out again but this time the carrier was damaged beyond repair. Worse, the ring and pinion were also damaged.<img src=bash.gif border=0 align=middle>

Now I have to decide to fix the narrow track 30 or maybe it's time to buy a 44 with an Ox cable locker oh yeah now we are talking !!! <img src=headbanger.gif border=0 align=middle>

Use Joy's repair rule #1- If its broke it isn't skookum enough... Don't piss around... fix it right. [upgrade it...stronger, bigger, better...] It beats the aggrivation and wasted money on towing, parts, etc. when it breaks again. That money is better spent on the next bigger, better toy<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>.

I have Jeep Thrills looking for a used 410 and Carrier to get me going...... boring <img src=sleep.gif border=0 align=middle>

I have my wife who works at a wrecker looking for a reverse cut high pinion 5 on 5 1/2 Dana 44 out of a 90 ish Ford pick up. <img src=hyper.gif border=0 align=middle>

I will get this and build as the wallet will allow. I hate to put money into the narrow track Dana 30 but I have to get it back on the road. It's my daily driver and the wheeling season is here !!!!!!!

Well on Saturday I picked up the used carrier and gears from Gary's Auto wrecking for $300.00 and took it over to Bruce's. I Get the front end stripped and ready for the new set up and DDDDDDDdooooooooohhhhhhhh <img src=bash.gif border=0 align=middle> the pinion is as bad as mine is.

At that point all you can do is drink beer Which I proceeded to do. On Sunday I put it back together and I will try and get another replacement today. I hope Gary's will take this back and replace (if they have another)
