Yep. I figure anything for Mmagus.
Warden brings up a good point. I usually don't like regurgitating instructions because it seems senseless and often self serving to me. But Mmagus asked, and I agreed.OdD,
What about the "peening" of the nut on the drive side.
Should one always use a new replacement nut. "Peening" is foreign to me.
pushr0d explained it. This is B'bandit's illustration. Click it, then enlarge it with the magnify clicky and you should be able to read it.This "cush drive" business is really getting me confused. What is it? Is it some pieces of rubber between a shaft hub and a sprocket? Is there a front and rear cush drive? What do they do? are they necessary? what are the symptoms of their failing? I don't want to hijack the thread, but I'm really confused on this, even after reading some threads revealed in a search.
Ok Pushr0d, I see it, thanks. And folks sometimes shim worn rubbers with innertube material, huh?OnD,
Forgive me for picking nits...
The BB exploded drawing shows three seals. All are part number 8. One is shown outboard of the cush drive bearing, and then one on either side of the Needle Roller Bearing.
Your writeup describes replacing two. Did you replace two or three, or is the drawing inaccurate?
The cush drive is a radial shock absorber. There are two sets of 'fingers,' on on the drive side, one on the wheel side. They interlock, but with a thick rubber 'cushion' between them. Look at part numbers 11 and 14 in the link above.
The 'cush' is there to soak up the high frequency shocks in the driveline.
