PostSubject: Axle sheared off in the diff   Sun Nov 23, 2014 9:12 pm

Had a little issue yesterday riding, the front axle sheared off in the front diff.
To get out of the woods I made a hammock of a thing out of bungee cords to hold the axle up.
To remove the broken spline I was able to drill and tap it 1/4-20 and screw a bolt in it. On the drilling and tapping I had to engauge the 4wd so the output on that side would not spin while drilling and tapping.
I didnt have a slide hammer at the time to I used a pair of vice grips on the bolt and tapped it with a hammer and it came rite out.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.][You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]" />[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.][You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]" />

I have seen several on fb pages that have done the same thing. These were not stock axles, they were Rhinos. Just one of them situations where I was pushing it a bit too hard.

Yea I was trying a little too hard for sure, I heard it and honestly though it was the diff slipping, it will do that in a bind. I think it did slip but then grabbed and shock loaded the axle. If I can slow down on replacing parts I am going to try and buy a new diff and have it blue printed by a company I found that claims to tighten up all the tolerances and helps to prevent the diff slip.

Ya , but with out any Diff slip , you might just break shit faster.
Remember in a bind , something has got to give. I would much rather break an Axel.
Than a ring and pinion... 431114

Problem is its not made to slip, its doing damage inside the diff every time it slips.
