Plugging away, this stuff is way beyond my ability! A little good news the front gears look really clean and I think will match up with my new rear gears, crossing my fingers but it looks good so far. I have no idea how to take the gears out to clean up and send to powder coating...

Mark the the bearing caps and the housing if their not marked already so the left cap and the right cap wont get swapped on reasembly. My dana 44 was marked from the factory so I didnt have to mark it. Then remove the 4 cap bolts. And pry out the differential. You may have to rotate the the pinion yoke as you remove the diferential on each end of the differential the bearing races will come out and fall off. Once its out, tie wrap the bearing race and bearing cap to its origional side of the differential . Do the same on the other side and stuff it all in a heavy plastic bag. Loosen the pinion nut before you take the ring gear carrier out. Let the gears help you hold the yoke. Would have ben better to loosen when the front axle is locked up sitting on its tires. After you get it all apart there are axle seals inside where where the carrier bearings were. You may also find tapered tube sections inside the axle tube. Which are guides when you put the axles back in.

Forgot, wear good gloves when disassembling this stuff. Allot of sharp edges and heavy parts. One slip can lead to a bad day. Work over a couple pieces of heavy cardboard. The fingers you save may be yours.

Also make sure you save the carrier and pinion shims. Should be able to re-use as is if only changing bearings. If you’re putting a new carrier in for locker, or different gears, you’ll still want measure old shims as starting place for setting up new gears.

When in doubt go to You tube. If a Jeep Girl can do it so can you.

I would leave the nuts on loose so you dont bugger up the threads and it wont fly apart like hers did.

Google addiction, thanks thought about that after I asked the question. What about removing the pivoting screw attached to the knuckle?

What do you mean by pivoting screw? The limiting bolt that's got a bit of a tack weld on it?
