hey there

halfway into my aisin install

took off flange covers, yadda yadda, put manuals on

c-clips have a gap behind them with the manuals on. doe this mean i have the inner part of the hub on backwards or is this correct?

if there is supposed to be a small gap behind the c-clips do i need to install some sort of spacer behind them or not and if so, what kind of spacer?

TIA

If you're trying to use the c-clip that was with the auto hubs, that is your problem. You will need a new snap ring for the Aisins. 27mm I think. It fits in a different groove on the shaft.

If you have the right snap ring, this is a new one on me :? How big of a gap are we talking?

HIH,
Andre

How large is the gap? The gap should be less than 1/8", but there will always be a small amount of play. Some hubs I've seen have small washers. Your hub flanges may have washers which you can re-use on the hubs.

so i figured out the gap, it was a hub put together wrong. i had to break the entirer thing down to scratch and build it. i did so following directions based on this page.

http://myweb.cableone.net/bcanderson/tr ... 0hubs.html

i got one side to work - it took forever...

now the allen key bolts on the other side won't budge. i'm afraid of stripping them.

no danger to driving one hub on one off for a bit??

Yeah those allen bolts are a pain. I took my aisin hubs off a 89 trooper and it felt like the bolts were welded on. I used a 12 inch extension with a large deep well socket to brake mine loose. I just slipped the deep well over the end of the ratchet and was able to get them all off with out breaking any.

How did messing with the hub cover and pawl correct the gap on the cv spline?
