Pinion Angle??

What is the max I can angle my rear axle up before I start having issues with oiling. the axle is a FF dana 60 if that matters. Thanks for the help.

Been doing some study on this also.
Dynatrac says 13-14* max
Solid says about the same.
DTS doesnt like seeing over 12*

But then when I posted the same question on Pirate. I was told to make sure the slinger was installed and a bit (?) more lube was all that was required.

Having said that, the housings you can buy from Dynatrac and Solid have an additional oiling channel cast into the housing itself.

I know I have not answered your question but wanted to share what I have found thus far.

2 HP60`s are setting in the shed as we speak. Going to take a good hard look and see if any internal case mods. can be done to help supply the pinion with a good flow.......

I know it sounds wacky but another consideration is to plumb in an oil cooler for the rear axle. They are used in several different applications. That way the housing could be tapped for a return @ the pinion bearing.
Just a thought....

Haven't had a problem with a lp60 or my 70 at 22 degrees, hell the 60 leaked oil at the pinion seal :tonka: I never even added extra oil ond don't know if they have/had a oil slinger.
