I just had my Lincoln locker re-welded (a lot more weld), because the first welds did not hold. For those of you that have welded your carriers, do you notice a slight vibration during exeleration? I'm guessing its because the carrier isnt as balanced as it was before. <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0"> Just wondering what you guys have experienced. Also do you notice the whole third being a lot hotter after driving than before it being locked? Is there a better gear oil to use with a Lincoln Locker? <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">
Thanks,
Eric

Did you weld the side gears to the carrier? did you check the runout? is it warped?

Eric was the backlash ok when you dropped the carrier back in. Also make sure your drive line is "in phase" in case you pulled it appart. My third seems to get pretty hot when I'm buzzing down the highway. I never worried about it too much but I'v heard the Mobile 1 synthetic is pretty good stuff.

I didn't notice any extra vibration when I had my '88 welded up. My welder is pretty experienced, he has a good sense of metal, not warping things, etc.

I was welded in the rear for about 6 months and never had any vibration. Did you set/check the back lash or just throw it together? Did you also preload the bearings? The carrier not being balanced would have nothing to do with vibration during exceleration.

a welded careier is not going to viborate. If its vibotating on exeloration than its got to be a drive line problem.

I'm going to tear it apart in the next couple of days anyway, just to make sure all the goobers are cleaned out. I did set the backlash, but I will check it again. I will also check to see if my driveline is in phase. Thanks for the advice.

Well, I figured out what the vibration was, (I know, I'm an idiot <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0"> ), when I put my chevy's in, I moved my axle back about 1.5", didn't notice my drive shaft was all the way out to the splines. <IMG SRC="smilies/tongue.gif" border="0"> Luckily I had a 79-83 shaft that I hadn't shortend yet, and it worked out perfectly. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">
But I still have some sort of rattle, I did notice when I put my third back together that there seemed to be a lot of slop between the ring gear and the pinion. How much should there be? when I set up my front diff, it was pretty tight. This one when dry clanks between the ring gear and pinion; this normal? My backlash is good the pinion is half way or more into the ring gear. <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0">

Take a look at Jays article it should help you out http://www.outdoorwire.com/content/4x4/toyota/tech/gear_setup/</STRONG>
Thanks Wes, but I think now the noise isnt coming from the rear. <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0"> I hate tracking down noises, what a bitch. <IMG SRC="smilies/mad.gif" border="0">

Don't be to offended I'm only trying to clarify, but do you know what you are doing? Backlash is the play between the ring gear and pinion, the clank. The pinion being half way into your ring gear has nothing to do with that.

Actually the gear mesh is the backlash. The more clearence in between the gears(r & p). the more backlash you are going to have. It is a direct relationship. Grabber the backlash should be pretty tight. You should just barley be able to feel it. Use some grease on the gears and spin it around. You can see where the pinion gear picks up some grease off of the ring gear and then it will smear it back down a few teeth later. The grease should smear from the front to the back of the RG and almost all the way into the valley of the teeth. There should only be maybe 1/16 of an inch left ion the valley with no grease. Clean every thing off and do it again for good measure. Good luck......

Thanks,I think my backlash if fine. I think the noise is something else. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">
