CJ NT D44 question

Ok i picked up this Rear 44 for Drit cheap need to put back togther and I nocticed the on axle shaft has a Sealed roller bearing and the other is a taperd baering on it. I wondered if any one know what one i should buy to redo the whole thing.

Thanks Chris

EDIT: Did the early 44's Come what a trac-loc at all. I noctice on the side of the carrier it has 2 small holes on each side with what looks to me like Clutchs on both sides

Looks like an open carrier to me.

But, if you are talking about the axle shaft bearings, I am pretty sure they should be tapered roller bearings, that are pressed on and then pressed on after that are the "wedding ring." Those are not C-clip, so they shouldn't have ball or straight drum roller style bearing, it should be a tapered roller bearn, and the outer race should be in the end of the axle tube.

To answer your question, 72-75 Dana 44s were available with the trac loc differentials. Some renegades had them, although my 75 renegade did not.

You really can't usually do the bearings without a press. So take them to your auto parts store and they'll swap them for a few bucks.

I bet a search of 4wd hardware or quadratec will turn up the part number for your carrier bearings.

You don't reuse them. The get cut or drilloed off (drill it with a hefty drill, then wack it with a chizle and they usually POP, allowing you to slide it off).

No, you need them, you have to buy new ones. That is what keeps that bearing on and (actually) keeps your axle shaft in your axle.

Have you thought that maybe you should hand this off to somebody to do for you? Kinda sounds like you are getting more and more lost on this one.

Call Rieder Racing in Taylor, they will be able to tell you (and probably have it on the shelf) everything you need.
