pinion yoke

I bought another D35 axle last night (I know, I know, but I had to get my daily drive back on the road immediately) because the ring & pinion weren't set up properly (it's cheaper to get a whole new housing than to get gears set-up). Anyway, the yoke that is on this new axle is not the factory one. The yoke is larger than the original. I need to swap my original yoke onto this new axle, and I wanted to know if there was anything special I needed to do to swap the original one back on there. Do I just tighten it down as tight as I can with a little bit of lock-tite in there to keep it from loosening up?

Is there no castleated nut? Or any provision for a pin at all? How about a positive locking washer? (something with fold-over flaps, not just the split ring or internal/external star washers)

That thing spings pretty fast with a fair amount of torque. It might cause some problems if it backs off.. I'd want a little more assurance than my impact gun can give.

Just a thought.

Use an impact gun and remove it. Spin it on the same way...There is likely to be a flat washer under there in all the gook. The nut itself is normally tweaked a little to keep it from backing off. This is a special nut similar to rocker/valve nuts. I don't know the technical term.

Just put it back on tight and it shouldn't be a problem.

You can't reuse the pinion nut. You'll need to buy a new one. Its has a somewhat oblong shape, so when you put it on, it sort of strips itself in place.
