Author Topic:   Rear End Troubles
posted August 10, 2003 10:22 PM
Saturday night we had something happen that I have never seen before.

We are running a URC style (magnesium housing with an aluminum tube) quick change rear end on our 2001 Olsen. Eight out of the ten bolts that hold the rear cover on, backed out. These bolts were tightened and torqued. Of course, lost all the oil out of the rear. Good news is that it appears that it only burnt the spur gears.

Has anyone ever had any problem like this before? I am posting this in the modified tech and sprint tech due to the nature of this beast.

Thanks for any help,
