    I am working on my Mgt. ,I tore it apart quite awhile ago do to bearings ,I have new Fast Eddy bearings
    to put in ,but I am also going to do a few more things before it goes back together ,like replace some
    upper hinge pin mounts as some are pinching the arms ,an doing a mod to protect the diff mounts
    from blowing out at the hinge pin mount on the diff!

    I will make a plate that screws on to the front of the diff an drill out for screws an where the pin will
    go in at ,it should be a very simple task!
    This will help from the pins blowing out on an impact ,may not be bullet proof ,but should help!
    It is rare that I blow them out ,but it does happen every now an then!

    Here is a pic of what I am doing!...:cool:

    These are the bearings ,but I have issues with the aluminum hubs eating bearings ,went through
    2 sets already.
    I am going to switch back to the original plastic hubs until I figure out why the aluminum ones
    are destroying the bearings!

    years back!

    from blowing out!
