axles out of diff??

ok. 85 chevy K10. grease seals r leaking. ruining shoes. i know i need to remove axles to replace seals. and there are C clips holding axles to diff. it seems like the clips r impossible to pop off. they fit perfectly in a recess in the gears. do i have to remove the center pin, push axle in slightly, remove clip, and pull out axle? obviously im not really experienced with diffs. so thanks.

I think youve got the idea right. remve the cross pin lock bolt and remove the pin then push in the axles to remove the C-clips.

Watch out when ya take that pin out. The gears that the pin is holding will want to fall out. ( spider gears ) there are shims or washers behind the gears. They can be hard to get it all back in alignment so the pin will go back.

Bolt that locks pin in place is a 5/16 or 8mm head,it unscrews.

i have that bolt out. ive been pounding on it with everything i have. i guess i hit it hard enough to chip a chunk out of the top of the pin. where the chip came off, it looks like there is another small pin running through the center pin.

should i just forget about it all. put it all back together. and just clean the grease off from behind the drums regularly? then get a new rear end. one with limited slip.

When you took the pin out of the cross shaft, was there a fairly long section of the bolt with no threads opposite the head? If not, the smoothe end of the bolt may have broken off in the carrier and cross pin. If that happened, you probably wont be able to get the cross pin out without damaging the carrier.

The broken piece will come out if you blow air on leftside of pin or sometimes you can unscrew it with a pick. The is a tool to drill these. T is a allen that you thread in to hole and it locks the broken piece in place. It has a hole through it to put a drill bit thru it.

you were exactly right. the threads came out just fine. looked good. i was pounding on it. saw that the smooth part is still in there. not a big deal. im going to leave it. put it all back together. clean the seals regularly. then get a whole new diff. i dont think that the threaded pin is going to come out. i cant blow it out. and the other option is too much of a hassle than the tired rear end is worth.

thanks to all.
