  • Dana 300 (re) build

    We (thanks Dave & Frank!!!) discovered (on the way home from Rausch, Sunday) that my clocking ring has come loose from the transfercase. The T-case actually moves around a bit. :shock: As a result, it is slowly leaking oil.

    It is time to drop the T-case and install the Lo-Max 4:1 kit (thanks again Rob K.)! I will be rebuilding it at the same time. It has at least 300K on it, so I think it's time! :D

    It was recently suggested to me to upgrade the rear output at the same time- I saw JB Conversions website about a new tail-shaft kit and saw that it allows for a driveshaft brake kit. JB Conversions clearly states that they do not sell said E-brake kit. Will someone please point me in the right direction for that kit? I did alittle searhing for it and left a message with JB Convs' in reagards to it.


    This is what I'm talking about:



    The Early CJ's came with a driveshaft brake-- if anyone has used one of these, you know how great they are! I'd love to have this option on my '7. The other issue that comes to mind is will it work with a CV'd rear driveshaft? I know the one on my Willys has a flange mounted upper yoke.

        Tha's OK-- I'm looking more for the parking brake feature-- besides-- I don't think my current e-brake will help in an emergency either! :-$ I've never had much luck with it-- repaced all the cables, lubed and adjusted everything-- still seems marginal, especially as a parking brake.

        thanks to both of you for the input-- I'm definetly gong for the 32 spl shaft.

        here's the e-brake kit .... I'd like to set it up as a hand brake

          I just got off the phone with High Angle-- they don't make a e-brake kit for the JB tailshaft-- they DO make one for the AA 32 spl kit. :-k

          What's the consensus on the AA kit vs. the JB kit?

          It seems as the AA kit will work fine with the JB Lo-Max gears, no?

            It would have to be e-brake only or it'll heat up like a pinion brake on the road.

            I agree w/ Rob, High angle was the only place I saw that had flanges for em. I had looked into that idea awhile back.

                Ugh-- I just called High-Angle back-- The driveshaft length doesn't change, but their kit DOES requires stepping up to the 1350 u-joint shaft-- AFAIK I'm running the 1310 joints(stock CJ/Cherokee size?). Stacking on the $$$$!!! #-o #-o #-o

                Who else makes these type of brake kits?

                Yeah, I won't be using it as a primary brake system ;)

                        Pete,

                        For a Parking Brake I use a fancy ball valve on my rear brakes. Its still hydraulic but it works great holds for days and passed Neuroc tech.

                          the 32 spline output is on it's way-- looks like Jon and I are going to have a 300 building party-- anybody coming?

                          The 1310 CV youke is on BO for a few days, so we are hoping to see the stuff in about a week!

                          Rob-- I have to get that info from you about that ball valve brake--
