|Mike, located on the Cayman Islands, gets Harrop elockers front and rear for his 1997 Landcruiser|
|(56 BIG pics loading)|
|NOV 24 2017|
| Mike's 97 Landcruiser....on the North shore of the Island and Landcruiser is pointing towards the USA.|
Mike often camps on this shoreline. I would love to be there with a camp chair and a glass of Pinot Noir....
|Harrops front and rear will stop this from happening...|
| Mike is going full bore and will have Harrop elockers front and rear and this write-up is about the rear elocker.|
Mike's is on the left and another waiting customer's elocker somehow snuck in the right side of the above picture.
Here is a link for the front Harrop elocker install.....
| The Aussie guys pack them pretty good. Strong buffering on the bottom with layers of cardboard |
and circular wraps of packing paper around the case to stabilize it.
|A very well machined case from Australia.|
|Because of where Mike lives, it was much more cost effective to go on Ebay and have a used 410 rear 3rd sent directly to me.|
|Parts are laid out and organized. The 3rd is secured to the fixture.|
|The ring/pinion is being evaluated.....Backlash is checked.|
| Yellow paint is brushed onto 3 teeth and spun back and forth 3 times to reveal a good pattern.|
This drive side pattern is good.
|The coast side is just fine. There is no damage to this ring/pinion. It can be re-used and will run perfectly quiet.|
|The 410 ring dropped out nicely.|
|The file check on both the ring and the Harrop case revealed nothing unusual.|
|Related parts are cleaned up and layed out.|
| Cola is very photogenic and sends her best to everyone on the WWW.|
81 ft/lb and blue Loctite on all 12 bolts.
|Koyo carrier bearings being tapped on the Harrop journals. Nice tight fit at that.|
|This end is now complete.|
|Yucky flange was removed and now pushing the pinion out.|
|Old seal was removed. I think that is 40 years of a baked on mud.|
|A new Koyo bearing will be pressed on with the original .047" pinion shim.|
|And new races also.|
|I use a bubble to get the large inner race started straight.|
|Making 100% sure the race is down all the way.|
|The smaller outer race is quick and easy.|
|Just bang it down with the widgets.|
|Looks great. A tight fit.|
|The pinion assembly is now mounted into the 3rd....|
|The freeplay of the magnetic ring is not the full 2mm of suggested play but good enough for this paint check.|
|Backlash is adjusted and some preload is dialed in on the bearings. Now it's ready for paint.|
|As expected, it's about like it was before....this is a good used pattern.|
|The coast side is exceptionally nice.|
|Last teardown....the pinion is ready for the new crush sleeve.|
|Only the best for Mike....Marlin seal.|
|I just didn't like the looks and feel of the original pinion flange...so a new triple drilled one will be used.|
|A little aluminum based anti-seize on the threads....|
|Anti-seize on the flat side of the pinion nut.|
|A 3 foot cheater bar was used to crush the sleeve and numerous checks with the torque meter until 12 in/lb was noted.|
|The new nut is dimpled and this end is done.|
|The shiny Harrop is mounted...|
|This bearing cap goes on easy....|
|...this bearing cap takes a little more finesse.|
|Push the cap in horizontally....screw the 2 bolts down....then thread the wheel.|
|75 ft/lb on all 4 bolts.|
|Both wheel adjusters are tightened systematically.|
|I can feel the backlash and the bearing preload. I know when I'm close.|
| The dial indicator has the final say. Backlash values are recorded from every other tooth.|
Not shown, but the total preload of 18 in/lb was noted from the pinion end.
|The tabs have blue Loctite and 10+ ft/lb of torque.|
|The resistance of the coil encapsulated in the magnetic ring is measured at 4 ohms.|
| 12 volt power is applied(no polarity so hooking it up either way is ok)and the pinion is turned....which turns the case which pushes the 3 pins inwards.|
Remove the 12 volts and the pins snap out instantly.
|The basic numbers are scribed onto the ring gear and date coded.|
|A snapshot of the notes.|
|Packing it up for the trip back to the Cayman Islands. This is the larger MEDIUM sized box....look closely and it is a double medium box.|
|Pool noodles :)|
|Now to head to my favorite Fedex Office Print and Ship Center.|
