I just got one from Amazon exact same one as on Keizer Willys page but 180 it's great Willys stamp too. But a day later found on jeephut for 30 cheaper

A quick follow up,... The bolts for the pressure plate came in just now! They are the correct thread, shoulder diameter, and length!

So, I'm thinking about kill switches again Several times this week different people have asked me if "either" of my jeeps are fore sale. We've had alot of break-ins around the neighborhood over the passed 1/2 year or so, so I think it's time I get a kill switch in both of the jeeps.


This time, I'm thinking about a rotary switch that has a bolt head in place of the metal or plastic turning knob (or just JB weld a nut around it, then grind it flat and paint it). It would look like a bolt head. In both of my jeeps, there are so many bolt heads everywhere one more bolt head would just fit right in. Alot of times sometimes I even plug up holes with bolts!

However, the only type of low-profile rotary switches (low profile on the back side of the switch) I can find are lamp switches. Which is fine, but they turn on and off by continually rotating the switch in the same direction, each time it clicks it's off, then on, off, on, off.

What I'd like to find is a switch that turns one way ON, and the opposite way OFF, and won't turn any more beyond that. Basically, so I can put a small scratch in the bolt, and know by looking at which direction the scratch is facing it if it's turned on or off. The continually rotating switches would be difficult to tell at a glance if it's on or off.

Any ideas?

I am changing the ball joints and seals on this Dana 44 because one side was leaking. I have never done this before. I didn't know the seal is on the inside closest to the pumpkin. If I remove the 2 caps will the spool assembly just pull out? When putting it back together does backlash have to be reset? Thanks. Name:  ImageUploadedByAutoGuide1398782659.436712.jpg

Nothing will have to be reset BUT if there is proper preload on the carrier bearings getting the spool in and out might be a bit of a bear.

The spool might make it easier since you could pry the carrier out on the spool

To stick it back in your need to get the bearing cups started and then tap everything back in with a dead blow hammer.

If your bored you can build one of these....



Generally you need a dial indicator to make sure you don't spring the housing too far.

Yes, just to the 4 cover holes with grade 8 hardware. Your only going to be spreading the carrier about 0.020". It isn't really that hard to do with the spreader at all. You just want to be even top to bottom. You need to get the slack out of the system before you start measuring.

You can also add pins that index into the housing.

Be sure to keep the cap in the same order left right top bottom. I have yellow marker paint on the left top L. and R on the top right. I used a large socket to pound the seals in evenly. My carrier pops out with a pry bar. Easy job just time consuming. I give it 3 beers

2 questions:
A) What's a good brand of battery that can operate on it's side? I've hear Optima has really gone down hill. I need 800 CCA.

B) Anybody have a source for those broom bristle type things they put around e-brake handles? I haven't a clue what to search for even.

I have had good luck with my Optima's for the most part. It takes me 5+ years to kill one usually. Just about any AGM sealed battery can be on its side. To get 800cca your going to have to have a pretty big battery in general.

Brush seals.

Ya, I'm struggling to figure out where to put it because of it's size. The optimas seem to be slightly smaller physically....which is hugely beneficial.

Thanks for the brush seals link.

I used to love the optimas, but no more, they don't last like they used to--there's the battery thread that has pointed this out and with better options out there…..I bought an Odyssey

I'm looking at the Odyssey 34r-pc1500 but can't seem to find any confirmation it can be mounted on it's side. It's an AGM so I'd assume it can but I'd like to be sure before I plop down that kind of coin.

They can, it's a sealed AGM battery.

Sears Diehard Platinum batteries are basically re-badged Odyssey. They don't offer as wide of a selection as Odyssey does, but you can find them more places and they have a better warranty.

Odyssey vs. Diehard Platinum - Expedition Portal

I think they even talk about your size.
