pitted ring and pinion

would you guys run a pitted ring and pinion, for a trail only rig? its a old eaton HO style third member, and im having trouble finding a replacement for it, or i'd just swap it. 5.13 ratio.

i'm skeptical, but ready to get my new ride out of the garage. anybody do this with luck?

bring on the and the and the

mild pitting from rust, but bad enough to where its definatly not smooth metal. it sat under an old flatbed for a while.

I've seen cases where they'd be fine and cases where they wouldn't. Almost need a pic.

Run it....it won't break or have any catastrophic failure...it will just wear fast if its pitted too badly. You'll know before it goes.

Just run it. It probably looks like half of the rigs in the northwest do. Mine is alright.

cool, i will run it. come to think of it, if it makes it 1000 miles, that will last me for quite a while, since its trailored to the trails.

i usually break ring and pinions long before they have time to rust


redneckengineered, just how big a feller are you???!!!!!

I vote for running it to. My father has a 47 CJ2 that he restored in 1992. He swapped in a early 60's offset dana 44 rear end. When we got it apart the ring gear had pits in it the size of BBs.. It is still going strong to this day (14 years later) without a failure despite being used very hard..
