I'm guessing it's Greg Huizenga with his turbo Cherokee. It's an absolutely awesome build for drag racing/autocross.

Was it this one? https://www.facebook.com/turbocherokee

After some research, it looks like the right sleeve will be part number SKF 99187.

I'm almost certain that the problem here must be the physical damage to the sealing surface on the axle shaft.
I did mess up the install first time around by using bent retaining plates, but second...

Yeah, this late Dana 44 just runs the outer seals, although I did grease pack the bearings anyway.

I had similar when the wire at one of the door jamb switches was grounding on the body.
All of the lights you mentioned come on with the doors open so they all came on when they grounded out.

So, what does everybody think of the new Grand Wagoneer?

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that I love it. I think...

Hi Tony,

The cam I've got is just a pretty mild Melling MTA-1. I chose it because I didn't care about top end power but just wanted a bit of a low-down torque boost.

I had thought that because it...

I expect you might be correct.

Dana 44 - New axle seals leaking

Last week I replaced the rear wheel/axle shaft bearings in my Dana 44 rear end.

That's a really good point about the caster angle!

Mine with bad leaf springs has a caster angle of something like 2 degrees, which I expect explains why it wanders badly going down the road.

I tend to run between 30-33 on my 235/75r15s depending on type of driving, whether towing etc.
