Default Re: Can't separate axle shaft from carrier

Thanks for the article. I can't imagine how much time ends you must have spent working on Model A's in your life so far. :P

It may be a dumb idea and proven to not work, but if one has a diff carrier with excessive wear from the spider gears wouldn't it be possible to use or fabricate a shim to compensate for the wear? Much like the shims for being able to set the preload on the diff if the race is pressed in too far. I think that would be an option if no new or usable diff carrier can be found.

In the US, you could just get another diff carrier of course but I would imagine that they're quite rare in Europe or Australia.
