Sals detroit in carrier

Selling my sals locker, it's in good shape and works perfectly set up for 24 spline. Does not come with gears. Just bolt in your ring gear and go!

450 shipped

Thanks

Lane

Dave, you'll love the rear detroit. It just works. Had mine for...15 years now. Cannot imagine having anything else. However I suggest in a year or two, replace both rear shafts and flanges. I had to eventually replace mine. I think if I had replaced them BEFORE they broke, it would be easier.

As for installation of a rear salisbury detroit, its super easy. Pull the cover, pull the shafts, remove the carrier straps, the take a crowbar and pry the carrier out. Get an old couch cushion and put it under the diff, so if it pops out, it lands on the couch cushion.

Then unbolt the carrier, pull the spiders out, pop the detroit in, the re-assemble. Just follow the instructions on torques and you'll be good.

I'm wondering why the marking compound is on there, shouldn't be any need to adjust anything if the old carrier, bearings, shims, etc just go back in.

Look at the for sale thread. It appears he bought and installed what was sold on this thread, so it's a different carrier than was in there before.

Max described the install pretty well.

The hardest part was pulling the bearings from the old carrier - we needed to scrounge up a bearing puller. In the end - I do not know why we spend so much time pulling the old bearings when we installed new bearings on the Detroit. In any event - the old Sals is cleaned, oiled, and packed away for storage.

We re-used the shims from the open diff for the Detroit diff and checked everything with marking compound. We checked the old diff with marking compound before we removed it, too. We did not have to make any adjustments - but it was good to use the compound to make sure we knew what the before and after gear interface looked like.

I had to replace my old carrier bearings a few years ago after axle shaft pieces tore up the races. I just took my entire 3rd member and replacement bearings off at my local NAPA that had a "machine shop". I dropped it off on the way to work and picked it up on the way home. Was charged $35 and it took 5 minutes to drop it off, and 10 to pick it up (due to obligatory BSing). Easier than screwing around with it for hours on end in my garage.

BTW, she will drive a bit different, but after about 100 miles, you get used to it. With manual steering, you do feel it in the U-turns, but, meh. On the flipside, off-road performance is increased by 538562958673278593625x, so solid trade off.

I briefly discussed this with the Fireman...but are there any sources for HD axles for the rare Stage 1 axle width??

What size/length are your axles Max? (compared to a Stage 1 Sals)

Pull the shafts and send them to Moser. They can make up a set for you then save the old one's as spares. I had them do a set for my front Salisbury.

Stage 1? As in, the early 110 axles with the thicker flanges? KAM.

Series Trek, I'm sure would do a set for you.

I dont think so, Fireman's axles are really narrow.
I'd guess they're at least an inch an 1/2 or more narrower per side than a D1 or Defender axle.

slorocco probably has the right idea...

The Stage One is narrower than the Disco / Def axles. However, my Stage One and Max's Series axles should be the same (provided Max's are 24 spline). Flanges should be the same, too.

I will have to keep an eye out for this.....
