I am starting a new thread - I found the 4.10 front diff that I needed to match the 4.10 rear axle on my converted 2wd to 4wd Amigo. http://forum.planetisuzoo.com/viewtopic ... 694#451694

According to Hollender, the front diff is common from late '80s to '02 (from memory, the print out is at home and I am sitting in a hospital waiting room). I was unable to get the RH axle and the LH intermediate shafts out of the axle asm. The owner had already removed the axle asm from the car. In order to be able to carry the part home the the truck of my car, I dismanted the RH axle at the inner CV joint and the LH axle to housing.
I expected to be able to pull both shafts out with a minimal amount of effort - no such luck. I even used a pickle fork and a 3 lb hammer and applied a moderate ammount of persuation and sill the shafts did not come out. Close ups of the two ends of the asm: http://i290.photobucket.com/albums/ll27 ... 070015.jpg

Is there anything other than a slip fit that holds the shafts in? I need to get at the diff - the rest of the parts are just scrap metal to me since I have a first gen.

you have to remove the 4 mount bolts on the diff bracket, then you can slide the shaft out with the bracket...I believe there's a bearing pressed in holding the inner cup against the bracket. I haven't done so my self but Ive read about it so thats about as much info I can give you...some one will chime in with more knowledge

for the right hand side where the cup is u need to remove the 4 bolts and the cup will come out with the bracket as one unit. The shaft of the cup goes through the bracket then there is a bearing, then a snap ring, then a seal, then a snap ring. as far as the other side goes, there is a snap ring under the teeth of the axle shaft. One u get that out it will come out though u might initaally need something to create some leverage to pull it out.

THanks for the replys. I finally got a chance to have at the diff asm. Once I removed the 4 bolts the remainder of the drive axle came right out and with the drive axle out and the lube draining out of the RH side I was able to get at the large snap ring on the LH side - once it was loose the intermetdiate shaft slid right out. I was going to toss the intermediate shaft onto my scrap metal pile - no need for it on my first gen but then I looked at is as raw stock for the lathe for some future unknown project- it sure is beefy.
