could you mark the area you 'welded' and say more about it... a welded head is not typically recommended by anyone, but many mechanics guarantee its welding strength...

There are few rusted areas at the border of water flow path so I filled it by aluminum welding and polished .that will increase the gasket life.

Hi Sreejesh,

A simpler test would be to jack up all 4 Wheels a let the vehicle idle in 4wd-Lo 1 st Gear.

All 4 Wheels should rotate in the same direction.

What about emergency spares, just in case the welded front axle snaps during an OTR?

Regards,

Arka

Yes,its very practical test for LSD differential. Once had the 550 roll forward while checking the speedometer with a new cable.

1,2&3 Gear need to replaced TC Counter shaft Needle bearing Everything except the Gearbox&TC case need to changed. But I am sure Once I did it in the proper way with proper Original Parts It worth doing it.

before buying the parts do the math - it may be better to buy a used GB than spend on new Gears.

Thanks Santhosh. But Buying a Used GB is again a problem because I don't know the condition of that Gearbox. So I Decided to rebuild it from the scratch Only taking the Best parts which is available to pick from the gearbox . I think It will be around 10-15K for the parts only.

Does that mean it is not the original stepped flywheel. Are you using the Same Pressureplate / Cover assembly ?
