Can anyone tell me how to get the c-clips into an ARB? I went to put my rear axle back together today and I don't understand how you get the c-clips in with this ARB; the setup is a little different than the open carrier and I don't want to screw this thing up. Do you have to take the spider gears apart and so forth or can you just slide them in somehow? If you do take the thing apart, how do you get the pins to slide out? The new thing has a different set screw to hold it all together and it is not coming apart easily. Thanks all. <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0">

The set screw appears to be different and I can't figure how you get it out. The old set screw is a long bolt whereas the new one is a pin that is in the hole with a set screw on top of it. What gives?

I'm positive you have to take the cross shaft out. (read the directions) But they dont say how to get it out??? the exploded pic of the locker shows what your describing with the bolt and the pin.

I put mine in front so I didnt have to deal with it. I could have sworn I put took that that shaft ouut fo some reason though and it wasnt a prob.

I hope someone can help. Try calling randy r-p I was having a prob with my arb and they gave me a tech # for arb

I changed to non usa axles five years ago and can't rember how to get it apart, but I have this special wrench in my ash tray that I carried around in my ashtray in case I broke an axle I could get the ARB apart.

Tim is real helpful at ARB

Pull the set screw. Then get the pin out - you can use a pick or a magnet to get it out - I use a hex hey to pull it.

It's really pretty simple.

If you call ARB, Tim is a great guy - but this is simple and anyone there can help.

Yup, the set screw is a button head socket cap (allen head). Pull this out then thread in a small tap or 3/16" sheet metal screw to extract the pin. You should be able to pull the pinion shaft out at that point.

It's been quite a few years since I got rid of that LC semifloater, but, I clearly
remember having one heck of a time getting
that pin out of my ARB. I had to make a tool
to reach down by the pinion end & tap it
out the backside. ARB should have tapped it
from the factory <IMG SRC="smilies/mad.gif" border="0">

I got the bugger out with a long sheet rock screw. It is tapped but I guess they don't give you the tool to get it out with the locker. Anyway, thanks again, I'm now proceeding with something anyway.
