Butch threatened "great ridicule" if my pinion busted on this trip, considering I had busted one in Moab and another in Attica...received lots of comments from many people on how stupid it was to install a cryo coarse and not a stock fine spline (yes, I have 2 sets of fines on the shelf). Not sure he's wrong on this issue (tho, possible) but his concerns were unwarranted, it appears...however, obviously, additional time will tell...
I never though about it that way :laughing: :laughing: But I guess your right. the old saying " Dammed if you do and Dammed if you don't " comes to mind But I would rather DO and worry than be DAMMED and not have to worry :flipoff2: :flipoff2:
here is a pic of my eaton's pinion yoke compared to the 32 spline pinion of an atlas t-case. a dana60 pinion is similar in size to the atlas. as you can see the eaton is huge. i am not worried about breaking this coarse spline pinion.
