Tech- - DRIVE TRAIN / HELP - PLEASE - 904/999 Output Bearing
« on: March 10, 2010, 04:06:43 AM »


Mopar sucks, mopar sucks, read all about it...
OK - so...I called your contact too, Bob.  His exact words "This is weird...I can find your OD but not your ID and your ID but not your OD".
I am thinking I am going to remove the last Chrysler part from my truck which is the transmission...what a friggin nightmare.  My truck is apart, I am not putting it back together with a crapped out Chrysler has me (and the rest of us probably) by the balls.
Friggin Wonderful!

The saga continues...called the stealership and the part is backordered, indefinitely...
Trying Fatsco now...and no such luck...again it calls for the INCORRECT bearing...geez!
He is goig to check in the back himself to see if he can find something...what a friggin nightmare.

I'll give him a call - do you think he would have it IN STOCK?

Probably. . .
He supplies allot of trans shops all over the country.
I know - I was gonna grab it, actually.

I actually called A&A and they were supposed to call me back after 5P...never did...
Thanks to AMCForum I was able to find the Mopar PN (the stealership wanted my VIN aka digging) and I didn't have it at the time...and they want ~$50 for it...
I will try A&A again tomorrow as they have it listed for $25 which is MUCH more sensible - as long as the O.D. is correct, of course.
One thing that I find interesting - my Jeep is an 82 and all replacement bearings (ie Timken etc) call for COMPLETELY different specs...strange....

OK...I will keep this very brief as I am extremely frustrated and thoroughly confused.

The Extension Housing\\Output Shaft bearing in my trans has went south...took a couple months to track down the noise...
Pulled it all apart and added external oil filter and 2qt pan...I had the trans rebuilt within 5,000 miles (but this part is not in the overhaul kit as it hardly ever needs replacing, being that it is a ball bearing).
So...I call my trans buddy up and have him order the bearing which is WRONG, they sent him the output shaft bushing which is for the 2wds and when he calls his sources they say they can't get it, sorry, not even I start going around town looking for the bearing locally with limited luck.
I call my friend up where my Jeep is sitting and he puts a set of Metric calipers on it with the following dimensions:
I.D. - 31.5mm (1.2401in)
O.D. - 72.0mm (2.8346in)
W - 19mm (0.7480in)
NAPA is able to find me a bearing that is meant for my application (but not thru there system b/c it is terrible and does not have it listed).  They give me the part and it LOOKs close and it is...everything is perfect except that the I.D. is 0.040in too big.  WTF...
So, we look at the bearing and find the PN from MRC...what we find is this, after calling SKF (who bought them out, naturally)...
According to MRC\\SKF the bearing is a 'custom' bearing by the PN but have no listing for it in there books including the OLD books...
What do you guys think is going on here?  Anyone have to change this bearing and run into the same issue?
To complicate things more according to Transtar my trans should have a ~2.445in O.D. on the bearing but they do not have a listing for the I.D. and the NEWER Jeeps have ~2.8346in O.D. but they do not have an I.D. listed.   Both of them are almost out with the 2.8in O.D. bearing only having 1 in stock US-wide with no plans of remanufacture and same with the smaller ones...
I am going nuts here...I think I may have to get a sleeve made for the bearing I got from NAPA with a press-fit onto the bearing and a slip fit onto the shaft but at ~$80(1hr labor), I can't afford it and really do not trust it even though a proper press-fit is said to hold up fine...I just can't trust it especially when I have my family in the Jeep with me on occassion and work nights with a 50mi 1-way commute...
The closest bearing I have found from SKF has the following specs:

I.D. - 30mm (1.1811in)
O.D. - 72.0mm (2.8346in)
W - 19mm (0.7480in)
Does anyone know if the I.D. can be turned down on the bearing?

Thanks,I will take up on your offer the next time I am down.
I'm sure I can get it stuck!! LOL!

Same here.
Not to worry - between the 9500lb winch on the front and the ponies under the hood I am sure we can get her unstuck, too...

Did not blow up the motor, no.

Did not take the baby, although she LOVES the Jeep.  She pretends to work on it when she plays outside - HAHA.  We would take her, but I have not put the rear cage in (although I have it already - spring project)

Truck did GREAT...on the section where I am doing that short climb I scraped on the center of my frame (why I flat-bellied the truck) even though it is ~23" in height with a 93" wheelbase.  NICE BREAK-OVER ANGLE, METHINKS.

Barge - I would LOVE to see you wheel it! :)

BTW - In those 'Poser Flex Shots' - I am running 35" tires (actual height ~34.5) and the front tire is at least about that high in the air.  Not bad, eh, especially for Sprung Under -and- Leaf Springs! ;)

Hello all - I have not posted on here for a long while now and figured I should share a recent 'outing' I had with a couple friends.  Everything worked really well...Liz enjoyed it, too!

LOOKING GOOD, STEVE! Cudos on the Royal Blue - same color I was looking at for my Yeep.
I wanna take a close look at everything when I'm down there tomorrow.
I straighted the body on the frame today - it was off by a full inch in the back ROFLOL.  That's what I get for rushing the YJ body on a CJ frame a couple years ago.  Finally got around to fixing it.

I have been told NOT to wrap headers because it will make them rust very quickly. TTI says not to wrap their headers either....

Not knocking the lawn mower racing...just laughing about how fun it is to wrap exhaust - even with the head pipe on the bench it was a PITA because of having to keep tension...

Tell you the truth I want to try it one of these days...probably a blast to get liquored up and race on a riding mower. :)  How hurt could you get? fast do those things go when they are setup for racing???

That would be a good idea.. I cursed even wrapping the headers on my V-twin lawn mower racer..


The headers are definitely going to get wrapped but due to low funds I will be holding off for now.  I have enough steel and welding wire to do the hood so I think I will do that next...even if it doesn't help it'll give some attitude at the least...
