Last night while in Newberg I tore down 4 axles (2 automatic & 2 standard transmission variants) and rebuilt 2 of them for use on the gasoline engine (front bus). New boots, new grease, and re-clocking to wear the axles on the opposite side of the races. Should work quite nicely. The rear two axles will be built later on as once CV joint was contaminated with metal as well as heavy scuffing on a few bearings.
Tonight the plan is to hang the rear brakes (shoes/wheel cylinders…all new) replace the rear brake hoses, install the t-fitting in the rear brake lines, and then start working on hanging the transmission in the bus. All of this while juggling preparing the unimog for service Saturday AM doing Search and Rescue personnel transport.
Photos and such later!
