OK, I fell I'm out of luck here but I'm going to ask anyway.

Due to lack of space and 220 volt in my house I'm building my MJ in my dads drive. I have the front D30 (I know, get a 60) apart and the caps unmarked. I knew where they went based on the how they where laid out.

Here is where it gets bad: Me pop in a desperate attempt to clean up picked up all my parts and put them in a box. Now I don't know up from down and left from right....I hear this is important. Any ideas on how to tell?

Worse case I'm just going to run them however, the D30 is just a temp thing till I find a donor axle but I would like it to last maybe till next summer.

TIA

Most Dana cases are stamped with a letter code from the factory, both on the cap, and on the area where the cover bolts. It will be the same letter on each side, but it will be sideways on one side. Look real close under all the guck and silicone

Id venture to guess that the machining tolerences are so good on recent axles that its probably the differnce in a 400K mile axle and a 280K mile axle.

They are machinedwith those caps on. They should only be put back the same way.

The only markings I've seen on the caps are from person that took them apart.

Maybe a dial indicator on the ID will show one to be more round than the other, if you know what I mean.

Yea but if you aren't wired for 220, i.e. a breaker, and an outlet, then you dont have 220......yet!

Look at the wires coming into the house. There should be 3 of them. Two wires carry the 220 between them, the third wire is the neutral wire. One wire and the neutral give you 110, using the 2 wires and the neutral gives you 220. If you have an electric stove, it is 220. An electric dryer also uses 220. Check it out.

very simp0le to run 220. I don't know crap about electrical but I can buy a braker pop it in , run wire and screw it in a socket. If all else fails make an extention and run it from your oven/dryer.

What did yo pops have to say when you told him that he just took 100K+ off you axle. I hate that. The garage is mine buy I always loose sh8t when my wife "cleans" inside the house.
