John,ask the gear shop you bought the gear from,let them tell you what to run.
Its those people that have to warranty the rebuild.

Default All set to go

Dropped off the 5 gallons of gear oil and a couple quarts extra. Permatex sealer. Asked the fellow if he had the 4 inch sockets etc (which he does) so I think we are good for Thursday.

Thanks SO MUCH for the help to this point and a couple of you guys stay close the phone's (And you know who you are)

Sorry I'll miss WOG this year but next year I'll be there and likely buying tires. So I'll provide at least that level of entertainment.

Lets hope that between now and then I will not need to spend much on the coach or need more HAND HOLDING. It's been a $10K year or close this year.

Not complaining I haven't been sitting along the road or needed a tow so I have NOTHING to complain about. And I think WOG for making it so.

Good example is this differential project. Had it not been for the WOG group and Shane and Barry Grim and Thomas in particular I'd not have had a clue as to what to do about the this.

Thanks also to Randy and all of you other fellows.

MORE TO FOLLOW THURSDAY AS IT HAPPENS. PICTURES EVEN.

Default Seals part numbers

I am trying to get things in order for tomorrow morning. I'll need seals at least. Can one of you give me a number for the seals required. I know it's a Rockwell QR100 rear and I assume I need an outer seal?

I think I found it NAPA NOS48000 ?

Default She's Under the Knife

Took her in and dropped her off for the differential repair. My initial plan was to stay and watch but changed my mind. Busy place and I was just going to be in the way. In addition I felt a little like an expectant father and pacing isn't going to help. Gave them my cell number and said if we need to talk call. I will check back in a couple hours and see how it's going. Maybe even take pictures although I doubt there is much to show. Little nervous about this but I think the doctor knows what he's doing and me standing around looking over his shoulder isn't going to make either one of us feel any better.

I'll let you guys know if it's a girl or a boy as soon as I know. I might get to cut the cord.

Thanks guys this will be the biggest heaviest baby ever delivered and from what I've seen on the x rays it's an ugly bugger as well.

Rob and Randy if I was closer you guys could take me out for breakfast and some coffee. Simms my vet friend might be around to fill in for you not sure what he's up to today.

Ethel is sleeping which is appropriate. She's not worried at all about this birth. Last one she participated in different story.

If I need ya I will call.

Sorry I have not been following this thread but had other things to do. Read your post "Crit" that my comment about backing up the coach and putting the tranny in drive and gasimg it before coming to a full stop was probably the cause of the broken ring gear teeth, was covered in post 6 by bubbler. Sorry but bubblers comment that he got stuck on grass did NOT cover what he did. we have to be careful and explain things so everyone can understand. These kind of mistakes can cause some very heavy financial penalties as well as a lot of stress. When solving a problem we all need to remember there is a wide range of experiences on WOG. Same comment goes for "Randys" comment about packing the bearings with grease. In an oil bath system like the rear axel nome of the manufacturers in there literature recommends it so what is the purpose? Whats the reason you recommend it "Randy"?

Tom,

I think there is a wide range of experience on any forum. there are several way to get oil into the outside axle bearings, for the inexperienced and first timers, grease is a sure way to not fry the bearings before the oil can do its' job.

Tom.
If you pack the bearings with grease,they will surely be greased.
The lube will wash that grease out in time.
I have done hundreds of bearing/brake jobs in my life on big rigs,trucks and trailers,with never a bearing failure,after packing with grease.
If you want to take a chance on lubing some other way,go for it.
