General Discussion / How many ?
« on: December 05, 2018, 01:04:11 PM »
After a recent visit by a Admin and another member  concerning some parts, an interesting question was tossed out there. How many wrench/socket sizes does it take to disassemble a first Gen Camaro ? No you can't include the your Cresent ! 

I'm not at all sure if this has been asked here before, think carefully !

i can assume from reading its crunch time, man i know how he feels, update us !!!!

hang in there ,, your not alone, hell as it turns out you have a whole bunch of friends here.

lucked out and got a good pattern after shim setup on new Eaton unit, but one of my friends asks, what are going to do with the old one ? does anyone know of or even heard of a repair for this issue, i understand that it might exceed the price of a new complete case but i just hate throwing the old stuff away. Thanks

Other than the washer just not there it looks good, i ve had this one for 7 years now and changed lubes but didn't see any significant metal when it was drained, and didn't see any this time so it was this way for some time i guess, the side gear wore into the case with some visible damage to the surface's as well as the side gear, but it is just as shiny as the other side, so I'm not sure any pics would show it that well but you can feel it, ill try to get some taken and post.

OK here's the update, after draining and removing back cover, pulled shafts, and carrier out and on  the bench, other than side gear movement that i thought was to much, i decided to tear it apart, after getting retainer plates out without shooting them all over the place, started on the side gears, and bingo, one whole side gear washer gone to the point of it working into the case, clutch packs were full of very fine metal, new Eaton on the way. pinion and gear look good, axle bearing and seal kit should finish it up.

well i have the cover off, and have re read the service manual, no metal to speak of and wear on the gear looks good, but i have what i consider allot of over all play/ back lash and both shafts move in and out way to much, 89000 + so i guess its time, i saw on a Yukon axle kit anyone have any suggestions, thanks

almost made it to the dream cruise, just short of Woodward ave started to get a bad clunk from the rear on left turn accelerations, we limped it home and just put it away, when i get some time will start to give it a good look, sounds like its coming from inside and not just the axle sliding around, any idea's before we rip/tear, thanks
