A/Os 1/2 ton axle rebuild and SASsy thread -with a pic or two

Since FTE could use another SAS thread heres what Ive been working on the past couple weeks for a friend.


84 F150


9" rebuild

housing stripped bare and wire wheeled


Had to weld one spring pad back on


Painted gloss black


The 3rd member already had 4.10 gears so we kept that but gutted the open carrier for a mini spool. The rest of the parts in this pic are 44 stuff


everything removed and cleaned up


Open carrier with the ring gear removed. Bust it in half


Knock out the 3 roll pins and remove the cross pin, spiders and side gears


Throw 'em in a box


Its cute


Stick it in the deep half of the carrier along with the shims that were behind the side gears






Stock cross pin on the left chromoly on the right.


Stick it in the hole and drive one of the roll pins back in.


Slap it back together and bolt your ring gear up - torqued to 60ft lbs with red locktight

Set it back in the 3rd member - caps torqued to 60ft lbs with red locktight


use the spanner wrench you made because youre too cheap to buy one




Had to put a new pinion seal in


Cast coat aluminum high heat paint....


Put it in


Press new studs in as necessary


Paint the brake backing plates


Slap 'em in and install new brakes. No parking brake




Bend lines


Slap it in the truck. I reused the factory 2" block but I think he is going to buy a set of 4" springs. The front is a little high and I want to ditch the block.


Hes also bought a new set of shocks but they havent come in yet.

Greasy rusty turd as delivered


Stripped down and wire wheeled


Paint


The axle came with 3.25 gears. Ive never seen one with that high of a gear and I dont think its factory. Not sure why. Oh well, order gears, carrier and install kit.


Remove the side gears and spiders from your 3.91-down carrier and install them into your 3.92-up carrier. Basically the same as the 9" carrier above except dont try to bust this one in half Notice the difference in offset.


Everthing together before the first go'round on the shims. The ring gear bolts were torqued to 55ft lbs with red locktight.


Press the pinion bearing in



Ready to go


Race


Pinion




Zang! Took 4 tries for me to get right.

Hubs and rotors


Press new races in, pack bearings and install the outer wheel seal.


Slap the shafts in


Add finishing touch to **** off owner


Caliper bracket, spindle, wheel hub/rotor and outer wheel bearings on.


Install blingness and repeat.


Wait on parts from the big brown chariot. 4" Deaver Superflex springs and 7* bushing set


Install brake lines, 7" extended brake line for a 79 F150 and radius arms. Basically complete in this pic minus calipers.

Now the fun stuff...

For tie rods, drag link and trac bar we are using 1.5 x .250 DOM with 5 -3/4 thread x 3/4 bore and 1- 3/4 thread x 5/8 bore chromemoly heims with kevlar liners. All hardware is grade 8 and pinned with a cotter key so it cant wiggle loose. We are also using misalignment spacers at the top of the passenger knuckle and at the pitman arm. You will need to drill the taper out of the knuckles and the pitman arm to make this all work.



More on this later.


Get that POS out of there


I salute you! Link'd

All gone


Roll the new axle under there


Bolt your blingdaddy superflex springs into the stock 84 coil buckets - I did this out of spite to the interwebs since Ive read numerous times it will not work and that 73-79 buckets are required.


bottoms


I used stock 79 F150 radius arm brackets instead of the TTBs. If you notch the brackets to clear the body mount and use the rear ttb bracket hole on the frame in the front hole of the radius arm bracket it works perfectly.

notch them like this...


bolt that shat up!

Mini spool bad. Better off making one with spiders n two cross pins.


Everything else looks good.

Trac bar bracket cut down from an old set of 4 link brackets






All done


Trac bar and drag link are within 1/2* of being perfect.




yes, thats a chrome diff cover.


On the brakes...
A 84 (not sure what other years for complete certain but Im pretty sure 80-96) the brake lines come off both sides of the frame with a seperate line coming from the proportioning valve. For this truck I used the 79 style lines and routed the line from the pumpkin (where it meets the juction block and is distributed to each caliper) straight up to the proportioning valve in the driver side line hole and capped off the passenger side with a pipe plug.



Next for this project will be a MSD 6al and coil, electric fuel pump and regulator, new valve springs to match the cam, shocks and a few other little things. I may also end up swapping torque converters for something a little higher stall.
