Hello, I am working on a 35 spline stub axle conversion. When I put everything together, there is about a 3/16" gap between the retaining clip on the end of the stub axle and the face of the lockout hub. It goes together fine, but I am thinking the seals on the spindle might not seal very well if the axle is not pulled out by the retaining ring. Normally you have to pry the axle outwared to get the retaining clip on, and now I don't.. Any ideas??:confused:

As long as all your seals are on there just throw on a washer or two... maybe I'm missing the question but this is like asking what direction to turn your oil filter to get it off.

What I was asking is what is the purpose of the retaining clips. Is it to hold the seals up against the spindle, or is it to align the ujoint with the knuckle joint? What is an oil filter? haha Just thought there might be somebody that actually knows what goes on in a dana 60.

Very few companies that offer hubs care about the spindle seals keeping water and dust out of the spindle bearings and wheel bearings. Some driveflanges have a spring to hold pressure on the seals. On some designs the small allen bolts that hold the cap on pull the snap ring on the stubshaft out in place of the spring.
