Disassembly and cleaning of the Dana 25 continues.
The yellow and blue paint is super thick. There are two different colors of OD green on everything too.
I had the axle and backing plates soaking and scrubbed over the last few days.
I still need to hit it with a wire wheel to get some rust, chipping paint and a little left over gunk.
Up on the horses
The carrier bearing caps are stamped its a D on both of them. I took a punch and tapped another mark into them.
I need to get some longer 1/4-20 bolts so I can attach my pinion tool to the yoke so I can remove it in the morning.

Spent time in the carrier and ring gear today. It was so nasty from the sludge, I took it apart, cleaned and put together again.
Set the kingpins.
With no shims and new bearings, I could pull 14 lbft
The half collar sweeper is a question.. which orientation does that go? Pictures Iíve seen didnít show specifics.
Yes I know the oil ring goes toward the knuckle, then the felt seal, the the half collar. in the above photo I had the brake hose shield on when I set the king pin pull. I took it off again so I can install the sweeper. _________________ i have a build thread on Youtube. just type in CoastieReid in the search.
I spent a bit of time today with a grinding stone to make my pinion setup bearings and also removed the splines out of the old yoke.
Set up pinion is in but I donít have a 1/2Ē drive 1 1/8Ē socket to fit. I only have it in 3/4Ē drive and no adapter.
So torquing it can wait till tomorrow. Not even torqued and I can tell itís too tight so I will need to keep adjusting the shims in order to get the preload right. No oil seal installed!
I will stop by a box store tomorrow after work, but I may just go looking thru the tools at work and see if we have one. Iíve got dozens of odds and ends in the vidmars
Once I set the preload, I will start on the carrier. _________________ i have a build thread on Youtube. just type in CoastieReid in the search.
