Has anyone got a good tip on how to make the correct dimple needed on the new steel sleeves they sell for rear axles? Drilling the grease fitting hole isn't a problem, but I can see that making the dimple could be. Thanks!
Who supplied blank sleeves?
The "best quality" sleeves that I bought from Lang's a couple of months ago had the dimples and holes in the right places (be sure to order a right and a left, they are different).
I think Chris has bought TT repro sleeves. They're made without any holes or dimples.
Here's a 2008 thread where some posters remarked they made new dimples by welding:
Chris I just took the mig welder to it keep the heat down then
Dress it off round with the die grinder works for me Jim
Correct, I have the TT sleeves, which are sold without the dimple and hole by everyone. I was thinking of dropping a small weld bump onto it.
On a side note, I took the driver side apart today and found an original Ford stamped rubber oil seal in there. It was neat to see an original seal still working.
