Trx300fw - Homemade Differential Lock Nut removal Tool

Recommended Posts

Repost of my old forum thread on prior website
______________________________________

 

Hey Guys!

 

So as promised to @shadetree, I made a tutorial (as there is not one on this forum, or on the internet that I can find) in appreciation of him helping me figure out how to make this tool (much simpler then the plans i was making to remove it).

So here we go!

 

Quick video showing / Explaining how it works:

 

Parts:
1) 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 in square metal tube
2) Metal file
3) Pipe Wrench

Optional (only if need):
1) large Flat piece of metal
2) drill

 

How to make it!

Step 1) Take your metal tube and file around the tube gently so it is much smother (can also use sandpaper afterward if you want even smother)

Step 2) Insert into the 60mm lock nut (P/N: 90244-HA0-000) and turn Counterclockwise

Step 3)Remove the lock nut from differential housing, and pull out the pinion and bearing

Step 3) This is the most important... Send me some money for beer!!! 

 

AND THERE YA GO! YOUR DONE!
To install it, just literally do this in reverse!

 

For the optional tool, all I can say is to do this:
Step 1) Take a piece of cardboard. Place some grease on the tips of the 4 bolts sticking out of the differential, and press the cardboard to them to stain it were the bolts are.

Step 2) Place the cardboard over the flat piece of metal, and drill out the 4 bolt holed through the cardboard.

Step 3) Cut a 2" hole in the center of the 4 bolts on the flat metal

Step 4) take a piece of scarp metal and weld it to the bottom of the flat metal so it can be placed in a vice

 

And your done!

 

If this helped please thumb up my video and say thanks!

Happy Repairing guys!

 

Edit:
A tip on taking the pinion nut off: * this tip should allow to skip buying the pinion holder tool 07924-HA00001*

 

Here is what i did. I took a vice (with rubber grips, but just put something like a few rubber bands in there so it wont get scratched up, and sticks better), and with the side panel off the differential (exposing the ring gear) i put part of the tube that comes out of the ring gear (were rear axle goes through) in the vice and clamped it down.

That way the pinion wont rotate because the ring gearl is holding it stationary (if one turns, the other turn's).

 

Now you can take that pinion bolt off freely without the need of that $120 tool !

Shade goes off and does "real life stuff" occasionally.
