Axles and bearings for 1984 310
So I picked up a 1984 310 2000 miles from home a few weeks back.
I heard a scraping noise when I turned into my neighborhood, I decided to see if I could re-create the noise today. I made it about 0.5 miles away from my house, turned the corner and lost all forward momentum, engine revved, but no forward progress. Luckily One of my neighbors was home and towed me out of the highway. Long story short, My outer bearing turned to dust and axle broke about 1.5" from wheel end on drivers side. This is not a super serious fix, except I could not seem to find any parts in town today. I will try at a few of the more commercial type parts stores tomorrow. the Diff was filled about 1/2" below the drain plug and the PO RTV'd the axle shaft covers to the axle tube one or both of which prevented the axle lube from getting to the wheel bearings. Bottom line, I need the part numbers and source for an axle shaft, bearings and cups for both side, axle seals, axle end plate end gasket, etc. and torque procedure for proper bearing set. I am one lucky guy. Thank you.
