rear end gear swap question

<< < (5/7) > >>

You will be charged 50.00 for a half hour labor just to drain the fluid from the rear end, another 50.00 to put fluid back in. another 50.00 to pull the axles. You will be tying up the lift the entire time getting charged an hourly rate as long as it sits on the lift. That lift is thier bread winner, If they have it on a bench they can get to it a little at a time throughout the day. As well as someone mentioned its a lot easier and faster when your not looking up at it the entire time, banging your head on the floor in the dark, while its still hot. This way you can already have it drained cover off if its not a 9" if it is have the pumpkin loose and ready to open, and the axles ready to come out, That is your cheapest route.

Absolutely Flying duchman.  A rear end on a workbench that has been properly drained  and the cap popped is a hellava lot easier to work on and cheaper that one on the car.

I would call a shop and see what they say. I was quoted $700 to regear and reclutch My 71 Mach I. I have a hard time believing I could save enough to justify the R&R of the thing. When I get a chance I'll call them and see what they say.

Tim175:
