    Re: Grinding when shifting into first

    You know, I had the same feeling about it being 'normal'. Although, even 'Bugeye Guy' has a video explaining how to shift into second prior to first. But... my car hadn't required that at all...

    Re: Grinding when shifting into first

    Well... here's a fun thing. I've never even looked at the oil in the tranny, let alone changed it. Could be low for all I know.... better check on that. If I don't know what's in it, or how long...

    Grinding when shifting into first

    1960 Bugeye, 1275, 4 speed.... "Otto". I had a rear axle sheer off as a result of a diff. failure. It's all back together and runs fine..... however, something new started happening. Sitting...

    Hey all... I finished installed the rear end provided by John... thanks again man.. super generous of you! Well, it all came together fine and I was able to take the old boy for run around town......
  5. Re: Help with 60 Bugeye - major drivetrain issue...

    You're amazing. And my new best friend.
    Thanks again!
  6. Re: Help with 60 Bugeye - major drivetrain issue...

    Wow! Thank you! I'll take you up on that... I'll PM my contact info and you can let me know what the shipping might run.... Gotta love this community. I don't know much, so I don't have too...
  7. Re: Help with 60 Bugeye - major drivetrain issue...

    @Rut -- Car is a 1275 .... however, as you mention the cost may make the decision...

    @Jim_Gruber -- How big of a difference did the 3.9 swap make for you? I feel like at 60 mph or more the...
  8. Re: Help with 60 Bugeye - major drivetrain issue...

    Hey Jim! Thanks for the info... I'm really thinking I'd like to swap for a 3.9 if I can find it... much more in to top in cruise comfort than power off the line.... Should the 3.9 or the 3.7 bolt...
  9. Re: Help with 60 Bugeye - major drivetrain issue...

    Well..... booger.
    600146001560016
    So... as you can see... a good bit more messed up than the axel. The differential bearing cap cracked.... not surprisingly, on the broken axle side. ...
  10. Re: Help with 60 Bugeye - major drivetrain issue...

    Makes perfect sense... but for $25 I can pick up a tap and die set and make all the u-bolts I want! I think a trip to the pawn shop is called for....
  11. Re: Help with 60 Bugeye - major drivetrain issue...

    Answered my own question by reading a bit more on the Bugeye site... apparently they are often completely missing, which can lead to creaking noises.... Otto makes a lot of creaking noises. So...
  12. Re: Help with 60 Bugeye - major drivetrain issue...

    Well... my replacement axle is expected Friday, along with gaskets and a new coffee mug from Moss. Had to get over the $10 min. But... I discovered a broken U-bolt on the suspension I thought I...
  13. Re: Help with 60 Bugeye - major drivetrain issue...

    Excellent advice as always.... and it's advice I already took... pic of the broken axle is a few posts back! :peaceful:
  14. Re: Help with 60 Bugeye - major drivetrain issue...

    Ok... couple more questions...
    Should that maybe have been EN17 rather than EF? Can't see any marked EF.....
    And... how important is the left / right concern? None I'm looking at seemed to be...
  15. Re: Help with 60 Bugeye - major drivetrain issue...

    I had thought about a really strong magnet, but had guessed you'd put a lot of work into setting it up only to find it's really wedged in there. Having said that... If I had a bitchin' strong...
  16. Re: Help with 60 Bugeye - major drivetrain issue...

    I realized now.. the back of the pumpkin doesn't come off.. the front does. Duh. That's why the driveshaft has to come out.

    So... I don't need to drop the entire rear end assembly? Once the...
  17. Re: Help with 60 Bugeye - major drivetrain issue...

    Wait a minute, guys. A bit overwhelmed here. I just replaced the wheel bearings on this car. (wish I'd know about the Subaru thing).. I just want to get the piece of spline out of there, pop in...
  18. Re: Help with 60 Bugeye - major drivetrain issue...

    Thanks! Am I removing the other axle so I can push the long rod thru from the psgr side and knock the piece on thru from inside the pumpkin? Might be a problem... it's rather tight on that side...
  19. Re: Help with 60 Bugeye - major drivetrain issue...

    Well... pulled the axle today.....
    59827
    So broken axle confirmed! Next step will be to remove the broken end from the diff.... am I correct that the back of the diff comes off by removing nuts...
  20. Re: Help with 60 Bugeye - major drivetrain issue...

    Hi everyone! Sorry to take a while to get back... biz is a little hectic right now. I did the suggested test by holding one wheel and turning the other (no friend needed, just hold one with your...
  21. Re: Help with 60 Bugeye - major drivetrain issue...

    Not to get ahead of myself before confirming the axel.... but I did go check on Moss and see about $275 for a new disc axle. Then I spotted this on ebay......
  22. Re: Help with 60 Bugeye - major drivetrain issue...

    Thanks! I can tell you pretty much for certain that the with the car in gear, back wheels off the ground, turning the passenger side wheel, the opposite did NOT turn the exact same amount. It would...
  23. Re: Help with 60 Bugeye - major drivetrain issue...

    Hey guys... thanks for the support and info! And thanks Rut for the info in the PM! Very helpful.

    I finally got a chance to take a closer look today.... wanted to take the car out of the shed...
  24. Re: Help with 60 Bugeye - major drivetrain issue...

    Thanks for moral support.... I'm pretty sure I can handle the pull if needed. Gives me an excuse to pick up a used hoist, I suppose. Worried about the overall time to do the job as I have exactly...
  25. Re: Help with 60 Bugeye - major drivetrain issue...

    That's what I thinking as a starting point... make sure the differential is still full and I didn't run it dry... put the car on stands and see what they feel like in the air.

    One thing I can't...
