Rear Stub Axle R&R Problem


Recommended Posts

I removed my passenger side stub axle on the 1600 (longneck diff, if that makes a difference) to replace it with a later unit that was drilled to accept the later CV joints. I installed the newer unit, but it binds when I turn it. I removed everything and cleaned it out, but it still binds, even with the original stub axle in there. There was no play in the axle before I removed it; it just didn't have the right bolt pattern for the later CV axles.

Is there a special method to reinstalling a stub axle? What am I missing?

Thanks in advance.

The shop manual talks about different length bolts that hold the stub axles. If they are too long it will interfere with the gears. Don't know if your newer stubs need shorter bolts?
