dana 44 ring and pinion and locker install

I am currently installing ring and pinion along with eaton E-lockers in my jk...the front install is complete...so i moved to the rear when i pulled the drive shaft out of the yoke it had a drive gear in it...as of now i cant seem to figure out how it comes off to get to the pinion nut so i can tear it down...can anyone help?

Huh?

Picture?

Maybe your seeing a 12pt pinion nut?

I will say if its a stock yoke and pinion from the factory, you might want to find a friend with a NICE air hammer! They work great with a pointed bit to puch the pinion out of the yoke and the outer bearing. Otherwise you will typically need at least a puller to get the yoke off and then a 4lbs hammer to hammer the pinion out.

Is it usually just the stock pinion that is hard to get out or all pinions in the 44 diff?
Sorry for the hijack.

I find the rear JK D44 (both rubi and non rubi since they both are the same pinion/bearing/yoke combo) is the most difficult of all the D44's.

I think you got the two mixed up.

I mentioned Air Hammer, to hammer the pinion out, after the pinion nut was removed.

Yes a electric, or better yet a pnumatic, impact works great to remove the pinion nut and to crush the sleeve for final pinion bearing preload. It just has to be a GOOD air gum to really have the torque to crush some of the sleeves in some axles, like the 14B.

Thanks for all of the input i finally figured it out...my jk has a hollow drive shaft instead of a solid one...so it had a splin gear on the end so when u pulled it the yoke had another gear incased into a aluminium cylinder and that in reture was pressed into yoke..so i found two holes in the back where u have to have a big hammer and a punch to push it out...and after that i found the pinion nut.
Thanks agian for replying. !
