A hydraulic slave cylinder would be nice, if I can find one that will fit the diameter of the T-90 bearing retainer.
Yep, I've read every page. I was also following the Willystech rebuild instructions alongside the Novak rebuild instructions. None of them mention the issue that I'm having and so far I haven't had any luck Googling either.Did you check out the sticky about rebuilding the dana 18--it's the first item in our forum...
I made a thread about this on an AX15. It should share similar dimensions with a T90 input shaft:

I did get a new gas tank between welding the bellhousing and the frame, the other one was running low. Also replaced my tip on the gun. I may not have been getting good gas flow. I also fiddled with the knobs on the welder a bit and worked on my technique. I think I was just doing a little bit of everything wrong.that's quite a difference! what changed? I had assumed those previous welds were fluxcore. Were you not getting enough gas flow?
