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.

Stripped. Primed and painted.







I bought a second yoke so I could take the splines out to set my pinion, but found that my original is damaged and bass groove where the seal goes.



The two yokes are just ever so slightly different,

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.

Very nice project,
but what happened to the pic's in your thread ?
Can no longer see them

The half collar sweepers are pictured in the manuals top and bottom installed and it makes sense to mount it like this.

For the yokes, you can use "shaft protection sleeves", so you can reuse them after a blasting and paint job.

Works flawlessly and is easy to install.

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.
