This was under another thread, but I figured it would get a few more looks over here. Does anyone know what type of Posi, limited slip or whatever is on this carrier???



Here's a side shot..



This came out of my solid d-44 out of a '78 Bronco. Also, are there any tricks to removing the pinion flange??? How do you keep it from rotating or can this only be done with an impact?? Thanks.

I'm trying to determine if I should keep whatever this is or go with a Truetrac.

Actually, thats the first ive ever heard that...what kind of conditions caused it to happen? too much tire and power in a bind or something? :shrug

I think i've seen......5 or 6 in the last couple years let go. I haven't really seen a pattern develop of what has been breaking them.....they've mostly been in trucks w/ mild small blocks and 1/2 ton running gear (3 d44's, a couple ford rears, and I think one was in a 10 bolt)....(not that I've ever seen one wheelin' around in anything but 1/2 ton running gear)....
all of this happened here in the NW....just running trail, though most of them seemed to have gone when it was particularily slick out....

the way the tru-trac works, w/ the gears inside like a Quaife/gleason-torsen diff......but from what I've seen, the parts just aren't quite up to the task of the abuse they sometimes see...

just some first-hand observations,
and my $.035 cd

trutrac is not warranteed for large tires
I would use a detroit/no spin

tru trac is an expensive open dif IMO

if you really plan to wheel it, I would advise against the trutrac.....simply seen too many explode....

if you're stuck on going w/ a posi in a D44.....find a Power-lock...

--Berne
same here find a Power-lock that is not hard on your axles like detroit no-spin does I had detroit in mine when it had that old ttb and I broke 9 axle shafts with 35in tires

i disagree with that. I have one in the front, and whenever i lift one, the power always goes to the other. or so im told by onlookers. Combine that with the way the TTB "flexes", and i get alot of weird looks from jeepers :toothless

i spin both tires to. if one comes of the ground a little E-brake pressure gets both tires spinning again.
