OHHHHH the centershaft bolt...
if its broken, your going to fight with it more getting it out rather than pulling and changing the entire axle section...you could use an angle drill and a easy out
but its a *****.
When and if you can get the bolt out of the cross pin .You will need to mike the cross pin hole to see if it is oval .If you can find any difference ,toss the carrier.These newer carriers are softer than the old ones. This also happens in fwd trans. When the hole distorts it lets the pin move and shear the bolt. I have seen the pin slowly walk out and mill a grove in the transmition case. If it happens in a rear diff it is alot more violent .
still can't get this thing out driving me nuts my poor GTR is out in the cold while i work on my truck! lol
anyways as i said in second post i was mistaken i was half asleep when i was trying to figure out why it wasn't coming apart.
I think i am just going to have to drill through the pinion or something that might be the easiest way got a replacement for 13 bucks just need to find away to cut through 2-3mm of this hard hard metal...
don't have one but any excuse is a good one to buy some more tools
thanks you have been very helpful.
Here is the skyline 1994 100k kms cost me 12g canadian
if you do not know has roughly 330hp awd, all wheel steering (managed to break this last time i drove it before winter came haven't ripped into it yet lol), twin turbo inline six.
Oxy-Acetylene torches can get expensive, but its definately a good thing to have around! It should be able to cut through the center pin, just be very careful if you go that route! Some people use those torches to weld up their spider gears... and i doubt you want to do that!!
That skyline is sick! Definately clean. I've always liked those cars.
