View Full Version : Brought my new baby home!!!

Well I brought home my new 1980 Scout II home today!! It has a 345 4spd, winch bumper ,spring over dana 44's with 3.73 gears sittin on 35's[36]
Now the problem is I was told the rear diff was shot but I did drive it home in front wheel drive from whiterock to Aldergrove with no problems. I got home and washed it and pulled the rear diff cover off and the spiders are stripped..... So my question is can I just replace the spiders and is it difficult? or can someone help me put them in when I get some! I will provide beer and food!!![cheers]

PICS! And spider gears are easy, but are you sure they're the only issue? Metal from them could have damaged the ring and pinion gears...

Ya I am debating on weather or not to weld or replace them or buy a locker...
I have 3 scouts cause the green one phil is buying ...soon I hope and my red one will be for sale soon...I don't think I need to rob too much off that one so it should be road worthy for who ever wants it...I will post details as soon as I know what I am doing!!![36] I still have to aircare the black one and figure out what else I need on it so I hope it will be done soon[cheers]
