The wheel end ratio is slower than 4.63 (higher numerically)

It won't rattle if it's wedged nice and tight...

Got started on pulling the tag axle tubs out. A good hour or so taking a few dozen bolts out and getting the air spring line off the bulkhead in a tight spot. Amazingly enough, MCI designed the wheel tub bolts to be accessible without removing more than the wheel. If I had been able to lift the bus up by about three feet, I could have rotated the tub so that it would slip right out from the underside. Alas, I do not have a way to levitate our bus, so I gnarled the tub in half with the sawzall. One side down, the other tonight or tomorrow.

I want to put the wheel back on before pulling the other side off for an extra safety measure, but that blocks much of my access again to the area that I want work on. The bolt-on jack stand came to mind. Perhaps it's high time I built the foot for it. I measured 16.5" the OD of an aired up tire to the edge of the wheel center bore.
