GM Dana 60 Load Bolt

Told Carl I would post these into his thread.

This is my Dana 60, I opened the hole then had a buddy who can Tig much better than me burn it in think he used ER70S2.

Drilled the hole to .875 then opened up the rest of the way with a die grinder.



He put down a root pass then one more on top. I didn't take a picture of the root pass.



Since I am using Dana 60 gears it pulls the load bolt back, we couldn't get all the way around the inside.




Turned down a Yukon Zip Locker, for the load bolt. By the way I called Yukon before I turned down the locker and told them what I was going to do and they said they would still honor the warranty. I thought that was stellar.

The Toyota gear has plenty of real-estate on the back side so turning down the carrier was not necessary. However with the housing being cast Iron (rather than nodular iron like a Dana) I was worried about welding in the load bolt threaded bushing. Thanks Jeramie for loaning a couple of housings to experiment with. I tried welding a couple of beads with the wire feed on one of the webs of the housing, and found it to weld just fine. I then tried the wire feed in a corner without preheat and without any peening, and had a very slight crack at the beginning of the weld puddle, It was so small you couldn't see it but i found it using a die penetrate crack check. So I figured they can be welded in using a wire feed and proper cast iron welding techniques. Just the same I experimented on one and installed the bushings by brazing, which worked well, especially on the inside where it would have been impossible to weld all a round with a wire feed. I did the next one with TIG and NiCast rod on the outside and 308 rod on the inside, both blended in nicely.To get to the back side of the bushing I used a small mirror to see where I was welding, You can see our peening technique on this vid.

Does this kit also fit the fzj80 casting or is it for the earlier casting only?

I don't know, If it takes the same ring & pinion, or at least the same carrier assembly, that is the same ring gear bolt pattern, then I see now reason why it would not work. Looks like the casting is wider. I made the threaded bushing a bit shorter for he 9.5" toy than the Dana 60/70 units, I could send both sizes, and as long as its the same ring gear bolt pattern then it should all work out.

9" with DIY load bolt

The nice thing about doing the load bolt in the 9" housing is you can use a feeler gauge to set the clearance. The Nodular Yukon housing welded up real nice. Locating it was a breeze, after doing some careful measurements the load bolt threaded bushing just goes tangent to the housing flange and 1/4 down from the edge of the flange bolt hole.

Sorry if I'm being a PITA but are the Jk Dana 30 gears stronger than the regular hp d30 gears? Like how the Jk44 gears are stronger than a regular lp d44 gear set?

Would it be possible? Kinda like a Jana k3 kit?

Was wondering because the Jk d30 gears go down to 5.13 and mabey a 5.38(if you can find them in stock). And a stronger gear set never hurts..

I don't know, so question is high or low pinion, and I think I have checked in on this before,the newer gears have a much shorter pinion, so it just does not work out, but I will check again, for any possibilities.

I believe that the Jk gears are reverse rotation so they would only work in a hp d30, all else equal, right?

Load bolt for a currie high pinion 3rd

Ive grow attached to the sweet driveline angle in my XJ. But as time marches on I've become weary of my 10 year old Currie third member. (7 years on 35s&3 years on 37s) Please tell me there is a load bolt kit for it. Also cost of load blt and girdle set up for a JK Dana 30. Thanks
Scott

I can build a load bolt system for the 30.
I just have not done it yet.
So if your not in a big rush I would be happy to start doing them.
Pricing would be:
Load bolt assembly $100
Load bolt installation kit rental $50
Rental deposit on install kit $100
Girdle cover $325.

Thanks for the quick response
Is there a greater strength gained by the load bolt system ,or by the girdle?

that is a tough question, and for the load bolt I can clearly measure the amount of deflection a non load bolted ring gear gets. (over .030") at Dana Spicers maximum momentary output torque.
The Girdle is hard to measure, but I calculated it is easily .020", similar to the spread you get when you use a differential spreader to install the carrier.

The best way to look at is is this. you take any box or for example a Tupperware container, move it around in your hands, then put the lid on it and see how much more stiffer it becomes.

I have figured them out, have not done a production run yet, if you want, send me $270, and I will get the ball rolling. Also Just had shoulder surgery so figure 3-4 weeks for your unit.
