I'm in the process of fabbing one up, it would save me time if someone can supply dimensions of the tool I would appreciate it.

If it works okay I could lend it to you when I'm finished with it.

That would be good, although can't help with dimensions, there use to be a loaner floating around out here. I am not that much in a hurry just have some forced (furlough) days off and have several 3 day weekends coming up.

Would it be possible to leave the metal housing in and just replace the rubber portion?

No, the new ones from Max are a filled housing with poly and a sleeve for the bolt to go through, and the old housing has to come out, or the uuc which is 2 seperate poly bushings, one on either side of the diff bushing housing, uses no sleeve, but the old sleeve still needs to come out. Check out

I have the UUC bushing and I thought about it. Problem is I would need to modify the new bushing and the existing metal could damage it over time. Best to just remove it.

I still need to put the step in the tube to clear the diff housing, Anyone know how big the cutout needs to be?

Probably, I shouldn't be needing it. Just need to figure out who gets it next and the logistics of how to get it shipped.

Someone is currently borrowing the only one I have left. I'll call him and see if he is finished.

What would probably work best is to take a Paypal deposit of about $100 and give the person a timeline. Once you get the tool back refund about $80 back to cover your time/shipping etc.

I would like to get on the list.

Thanks

That's what I use to do. I had 5 at one point and I'm only left with one.

Sounds good, I will start another thread tonight to get it rolling.

I only have one and do not plan to make more. Did they break or just not get returned?

I believe people thought the $50 they sent me wasn't worth the trip back to the post office. Maybe if you hold on to $100 instead of $50 they'll send it back. I had a few made for people after I stopped 'loaning' mine. I charged $90, so if anyone wants one for that price just let me know.
