Anyone know a good way to clean the old grease out of the rear wheel hub and splines? Can the final drive unit be cleaned the same way?

I scrape mine out with a piece of aluminum or fiberglass circuit board then spray it with non-chlorinated brake cleaner and then wipe with paper towels and a final cleanup with more brake cleaner ( I like brake cleaner).

Everything likes brake cleaner (except plastics and paint).

When I did mine, the bearings were out so I used varsol and compressed air. The old air gun does a great job on most things(if you have air).

I just did mine and used an old gallon plastic jug with a hole drilled in the lid for a 1/4 inch air hose. Air hose is attached to an air spray handle running off the compressor. Jug filled with kerosene. Spray then air dry with different nozzle. Wipe up excess with clean towel.

Wow, I wish my splines still looked that good.:baffled:
Unless they were replaced by a PO, those have over 75,000 miles on them!

Don't they though? Don't know what made me think to take pics of them for, I guess I'm just a show and tell kind of guy!:D:D

I didn't even take the assembly off for removing the tire.

Anyways, new owners can now see what we're talking about when we refer to the pumpkin and the splines.

My '85 has the rear drive and rear wheel off a 1500. I'm guessing an 88 because that is the only # I can find on the rim or drive.

It has some serious wear on both sides of the splines. I will have to replace it when I can and it will probably be cheaper just buying the entire set up off ebay.
