    Some of the progress of a part time wheeler.

    The Sanden OBA setup:
    Oiler and One Way Valve to 3/8" copper



    K&N intake filter

    Over to pressure switch and inline oil and water separator/filter. Zip ties are temporary.


    Back to manifold and first rear tank, manifold has pressure relief valve, guage and outlets to other tank.

    Over to second tank with regulator.

    Over to the only outlet for now, I have a 50' hose so I'm set.

    Thought I might as well show my rear full depth drawers.
    Closed

    And open

    looks good man...I like the drawer idea too....


    Looks like your gonna launch something out the back of the rig.....not that I mind but make sure your aiming for Iraq eh lol

    I dont know if "all around" the strapping your using to hold the bottles down will be strong enough tho...it might not take to bouncing around

    Yeah I tripled up the strapping around the scott bottles and they are mounted on formed soft rubber cushions for shock loading, pretty solid but I will keep my eyes open for something better. Check out the ammo boxes, lol, $5.75 at Princess this week for the large ones, should have got more.Thanks guys.

    Don't come to Burlington today... they're doing a safety Blitz all around the city and sending them to Burlington Mall (from as far up as 401 & 6) for safety inspections. You'd get yanked in a heartbeat with those in the windows.

    I'd box the tanks and try to conceal the lines just to keep people off your back.

    Those bottles are tested 7500 psi, tappin and loading them with a measly 150 psi isn't an issue, especially with a 150 psi blowoff valve.

    Those windows are stock, thats how they came, no tint, factory.

    The strapping is plenty strong enough, they've been tested enough. I wouldn't carry my family around if I didn't think it was safe for a collision.

    Thanks all.

    I think he means because you can see the bottles out the window that you would get pulled over for an inspection

    Ah yes, didn't see the those "in" the windows part, yes I was worried about that too. I thought cause I dont ride with them aired up the tanks would be fine transporting empty. No problems with that here tho. Thanks apusz

    the rear d44 rear build up

    This will be a long process, I tend to take my time with shite, if you didn't already know that about me, lol. This will be the long slow process of my teardown and rebuild of my rear d44. I'm still pretty new to this so bear with me, no smart ass comments, especially you Sarge!

    Lets start with the donor, my 87 laredo.



    The axle, finally off and in the shop, thanks kids for the toboggan!



    The practically brand new brakes, dont plan on needing them, hoping to swap to zj discs while I'm at this, anyone looking for d44 drums and shoes and all parts let me know, very little wear.



    Drums and shoes removed, as well as wc etc.



    Cracking the cover!



    This side retainer plate came off ok, had to cut the other side off.



    The chunk.



    Took some time but figured out how to free up the axles, remember I'm pretty new to this, it's a learning process.

    Both sides removed, passenger side slightly longer than driver side.



    Some friendly persuasion and the chunk is out!



    Not sure what is normal here but I found no shims on the sides and the groove in the sides seemed to have some kind of gasket maker in there, no oring or anything. Should be shims tho right? This xj was running and used and worked fine. Odd?




    Pinion removed, lots of friendly persuasion here, just got the outer bearing to remove now.



    Pretty much broken down now, lots of cleaning up and priming to do, some form of truss to do, filling holes in the axle, redrilling and tapping the vent, you know the story.



    Ring and pinion out now.



    Completely gutted now. As I said on to clean up. Hoping to shorten shock mounts too. Thanks for checking in!

    now thats progress!!

    as for scott tanks inside, hard to believe MTO would have issue with it considering they are built into the seats of a crew cab Fire rig and drive around ever day with them there.

    lol, thanks Sarge, I have had a conversation with the staff sergeant with Middlesex OPP, he couldn't see a problem and he looked closely, however I only seem to have troubles with Huron County OPP so you never know. Thanks all, I'll keep you posted.

    the shims you are looking for in the one pic, are on the carrier, sandwiched behind the bearings. the sealant is to seal the axle tubes into the center section and prevent gear oil from seeping out. that is normal from the factory. no o-rings.
    I took apart my Dana 44 also. even got all the bearing races out. That probably wasn't necessary, and i probably just made more work and expence for myself. Mine too will be a slow slow build. I havent touched it in about a year as it is.

    Thanks gadgets, I was wondering where the shims were, I guess I will re-rtv that section again when I do final assembly, which will be a long way away. I think I will leave the races in, lots to learn, thats why I take it slow. Thanks for the reply.

    he he he

    Not everyone likes it, some hate it.
    The fact is, I needed to remove my doors anyways to solve a little rust problem before it gets out of hand so in preparation for that I swapped the stupid torx cap screws for normal cap screws with plenty of anti seize and worked the hinges so that the doors are now removable with no tools quite easily. Gonna make rust work and herculiner on the door bottoms nice and easy this summer.



    And while were at it here's my d44 cleaned up and trussed, just waiting for gears etc.



    Not the best welds going but I'm comfortable with them

    Just for strength Josh, not on your level but I'm trying! Took a quick tour today with my daughter but it was freezing!!! She also brought up a great point, I know I'm legal and all with no doors but she asked what if I get T-boned. Great point and one I didn't think of, that's one thing no one has brought up. I believe there is no structural component with the doors as far as flex however there is a vital component with regards to a t-bone collision. Therefore I wont be doing any highway driving with the doors off, not when she can see anyways, lol. On our tour I visited a neighbor a block away with a nice willys, thanks for the check in Josh, can't wait to see you out there, I trust the family is good.

    Why don't you make some half doors using donor parts? That would look cool and be functional (and safer than nothing).
