First off i'm not running it, just wanting to remove the shafts to sale. I have the drums off, the nut off on the end of the shafts, my problem is how th hell you get the bar pin out in the carrier. There is a hole in the carrier where it looks like maybe a pin could be holding it in. On a 35c there is a small bolt that is removed then pin slides out, what is holding the pin in on the AMC 20, it's from a 79' Cj5. <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">

Uh, I say roll pin. It only punches out one way. Why do you need to take out the pin? The axles unbolt from the housing end.

Well, i got that bolt off on the end, but the roll pin(bar pin..whatever it's called) goes through the shaft and when i pull on the end to pull it out the pin prevents it from coming out, now i'm sure you realize all ready i'm not an expert on the AMC 20 axle....so what's the trick i'm not seeing.

If you have two peice axles they are a bitch to get out....however if you have one piece axles then they should just slide out once you have the bolts undone. if they are one peice and they wont just slide out then something is wrong

...And if they are two piece, who would want to buy them? You shouldn't need to pull the cross pin in the carrier, but if you just want to, Rockslut is right, there is a roll pin holding it in. Get a long skinny punch, and tap it out, then the cross pin should come out normally. Again, I do not think this needs to be removed to take the axle out.

Hey, thanks for the advice guys, I tool a small punch to it, and it came out. There two peice stock shafts....I figure I can carry them with me on trial runs, since alot of the Jeeps in my club have AMC 20s someone might need them. I'm sure someone is looking for a 20 housing to build or whatever. Thanks for the info!!!! <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">

The amc20 axles, one or two piece are retained only at the outer ends by the outer seal and brake backing plate. After you remove the four nuts, the axle, along with brake backing plates will pull out of the axle housing. You don't have to remove the nut that secures the hub onto the axle. That's only for removing the bearings and brake backing plate. The axle may need a yank to get them out. Use a rim on the studs with lug nuts out at the ends of the studs to snap outward as a puller. If that doesn't work, use a piece of chain attached to two lug nut studs and snap it with a sledge hammer. The differntial centre contains no components that retain the stock or after market one piece axles.
